Hi PGBiodiesel; I live in north west Ia.& raised the crop sandy soil no.1 field done about 900 lbs no. 2 did about 1500 lbs.
The canola didn't have the best life going for the year. I was happy with the first time raising canola. Was planning to try winter conola, had 2.3" of rain early Aug. & none since. Had many combine harvest fires with hi winds this fall. [42+?] with in a 35 mile circle & 1 fire took a farm building site.
