Soybean and canola producers face similar challenges during harvest – the need to cover acres quickly while minimizing header and threshing losses. Soybean producers risk decreased revenue due to seed loss, primarily at the header, during harvest. Canola producers have harvest management options that can affect efficiencies and overall profitability including harvest method and header type. PAMI tested the effect of desiccants when straight cutting canola with shatter resistant canola varieties when compared to swathing. Lorne will discuss the variables of each system and how they can affect your overall profitability.
