Speakers announced for Canola U

Canola U will give wheat producers the 101 on winter canola from DEKALB and High Plains Journal. The event, designed to "school" producers on using winter canola in a wheat rotation to increase yields and grain quality, will be the first of two exclusive events in 2011.

The first event is set to take place at the Reed Conference Center in Midwest City, Okla., on Jan. 18, 2011. The all-day information session will focus on introducing winter canola into a wheat rotation, agronomy, seed selection and marketing, and equipment modification.

Register for the event at www.canolau.com or call 855-4CANOLA. There is no charge to attend the event and information will be available following the event.

An expert panel is set to present information on equipment modifications, agronomy, marketing and rotation benefits.

Canola U instructors

Mark Boyles--Boyles currently manages the OKanola project designed to introduce winter canola as a major rotational crop to winter wheat in Oklahoma. An Oklahoma State University assistant professor, Boyles has a rich background in agronomy and extensive field experience with winter canola and winter wheat. He has collaborated with OSU Extension specialists and industry sponsors to develop research protocols for OSU canola research studies, including herbicide tolerance, grazing, fertilizer and insecticide combinations, no-till, long-term wheat and canola rotations, herbicide plant-back studies and variety comparison studies. Boyles has previously worked for BASF and Sandoz Agro Group as a field biologist, scientist and technical service manager. He holds two degrees from OSU--a B.S. in agronomy and a M.S. in agronomy, weed science and plant pathology. Boyles has won numerous professional awards and is a prolific writer in professional journals.

Heath Sanders--An oilseed agronomist for Producers Cooperative Oil Mill in Oklahoma City, Sanders works in the field assisting both new and experienced winter canola producers. He also works with other agronomists and crop consultants to speed the adoption of winter canola in the Southern Plains. Sanders has been involved with winter canola since 2003, when this new crop was only being evaluated in small-plot research trials. Sanders studied under and worked with Dr. Tom Peeper, and he holds a B.S. degree in agricultural education and a M.S. degree in plant and soil sciences from Oklahoma State University. He has also worked as a winter canola extension agent for northwest Oklahoma, operating out of Enid. Sanders remains involved in the family farm in southwest Oklahoma, where winter canola is rotated with other crops.
