20th Annual Canola Expo

Join us on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017 for our annual Canola Expo!

USDA October Crop Production Report

October 12, 2017 -

The first U.S. canola production forecast for 2017 is 2.81 billion pounds, down 9 percent from the revised 2016 production of 3.09 billion pounds. If realized, this will be the third largest production on record for the United States. Area planted, at a record high 2.08 million acres, is down 4 percent from the June estimate but up 21 percent from last year. Canola farmers expect to harvest a record high 2.03 million acres, down 4 percent from June but up 20 percent from 2016. The October yield forecast, at 1,383 pounds per acre, is 441 pounds below last year’s record high yield and will be the lowest since 2007, if realized.

The yield in North Dakota, the largest canola-producing State, is forecast at 1,410 pounds per acre, down 430 pounds from last year’s yield. Planted area in North Dakota is estimated at 1.59 million acres, an increase of 9 percent from 2016. Planting of the canola crop in North Dakota was generally behind last year’s pace, but ahead of the 5-year average. Maturation of the crop followed that same pattern for the majority of the growing season and harvest was underway by early August. Harvest progress reached 95 percent complete by September 24, two percentage points ahead of last year and 4 percentage points ahead of the 5-year average.

Look Out For Clubroot in Canola

August 30, 2017 -

Clubroot Alert from Cavalier County Agent Anitha Chirumamilla: 

Be vigilant while swathing and let me know if you suspect any low yielding spots. Dr. Venkat Chapara at the Langdon Research Center is working on a survey to see the distribution and spreading patterns of this disease. Prevention and early detection play a key role in the management of this disease. We can be ahead of this disease by being proactive

Dicamba survey still open; options being evaluated: The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) has been gathering information on plant injury that may have been caused by use of the herbicide dicamba.
Growers and applicators who suspect dicamba injury are encouraged to complete a survey on NDDA’s website to help quantify the number of potential reports and acres impacted.

“We’ve had a lot of responses on the dicamba survey,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said. “The 2017 spraying season has wrapped up, but the information we’re gathering will help determine restrictions and protocols for the 2018 growing season.”

Dicamba is a selective herbicide used to control broadleaf weeds and woody plants. It has many applications, including lawn care, crop production and range management. Historically, it has been used in pre-plant applications on soybeans. Recently, new low-volatile formulations have been approved for postemergence use on dicamba-tolerant soybeans.

“I’ve been in talks with Monsanto, BASF and DuPont and they are willing to send representatives out to look at fields that may have been affected,” Goehring said. “Producers who would like to speak to a company representative should contact their local chemical dealers.”

Goehring is considering changing application protocols for dicamba to protect non-target crops. Producers are encouraged to provide specific feedback on the survey.
The survey may be found at www.nd.gov/ndda/dicamba-survey.

Information gathered from the survey will not be used for pesticide enforcement against applicators and no penalties will be issued based on the survey. Those wishing to file a formal pesticide complaint should contact NDDA 701-328-2231.



July 28, 2017 -

The new generation of crucifer flea beetles is emerging, and feeds on the green foliage and developing pods. Field reports of significant feeding injury have been observed near Napoleon in south central ND. Usually the upper or younger pods and later seeded crops are most impacted. This feeding damage results in poor seed fill, premature pod drying, shriveled seeds, or pod shattering, and provides an entry point for fungal growth within pods in damp weather. However, it is usually not economic since most of the yield comes from the lower pods. If canola is under drought stress, damage could be more severe. There is no established threshold for managing flea beetles this late in crop development. If you are considering spraying an insecticide, it is important to observe the different Pre-Harvest Intervals (PHI) of the insecticides registered in canola. Any pyrethroid insecticide will offer good control of flea beetles and residual activity until harvest. Examples of active ingredients and PHI include: bifenthrin – 35 days PHI (Sniper, Tundra EC, Brigade 2EC, others); deltamethrin – 7 days PHI (Delta Gold); gamma-cyhalothrin – 7 days PHI (Declare); lambda-cyhalothrin – 7 days PHI (Grizzly Too, Silencer, Warrior II, others) and zeta-cypermethrin – 7 days PHI (Mustang Maxx).

Mission Statement

CanolaPlantThe mission of the Northern Canola Growers Association is to promote and encourage the establishment and maintenance of conditions favorable to the production, marketing, processing, research, and use of canola. To promote efficient production through farmer education, public and private research, labeling and registration of crop protection products; to promote uniform seed and product standards; and to work to develop and implement agriculture policies that will enhance development of the industry.
