    You don't put Your fences too close together up there.

      Good job! Looks like a nice yield.
      Now while you're resting, pray for some good weather so it's not all for naught.
      Ah the farm life, get up when you please, call all your own shots and sit back and let nature do all the work. NOT!!!

          Interesting to see how farming is done around there.
          Never seen canola dried out in the windrow, you guys in North America certainly have different climate.

            I prefer the wide open spaces.

            Pretty happy with crop so far,Combine&Truck Scale gives final outcome.I think this is my best crop since 2016,the last 4 yrs have been severely wet and this year total opposite with extreme heat.Most of the prairies yields will be greatly reduced with dry&hot conditions and Grain&Oil Seed prices are going through the roof.

            There is some straight cutting of Canola done here, both ways have their advantages.

              Does anyone call it rape anymore?

                  Canola is a trademark, IIRC, a special variety of the rapeseed, less of a particular compound, making it OK for human consumption.

                  Plus, the PC police have probably been there as well.... Not a good branding these days, hence "canola".

                    What actually yields the oil? Is it the entire plant, or just seeds?

                    In the late 80's I was working for a hybrid seed company in Iowa, a division of the British co. Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI), which at that time acquired ContiSeed in Canada, one of the biggest sources of rape seed. That was the first I ever knew of Canola.

                      How many days plant to harvest? Is the green part of the plant used for cow feed?

                        That name would not be acceptable today.

                        The small round seed is what oil is crushed from.

                        About 120 days from plant to harvest,the straw is not normally used but this year with severe drought a lot will be baled for bedding& roughage.

                          Seems like biomass ethanol is giving fusion competition for the technology that's a decade away, and always will be. Another victim of cheap oil. Sad, there's a lot of agricultural biomass like this out there.
