What do you suggest for controlling height? Omit second N application? Or maybe replace with a smaller foliar N?Against my better judgement recommended Cryx at 1.4 lt/ha on rape sown 6 kg/ha with chicken manure applied last August. Too thick - to the extent some plants leaning over and lodging now. A fertile farm that receives oodles of manures. The farm staff think Caryx is useful and have used it regularly in previous years. And in previous years, I have put up canes and arranged non treated half tramlines. All I will say is i I had not put in the canes would never have found the untreated plots again either from eight reduction, any effect on lodging or the combine yield maps.
You are looking at those old Morley Bulletins again from 80s and 90s.

Not this time. Today the trick is to Google for "chlormequat canola". Plenty of research papers for folk to draw their own conclusions. Hint - make sure you check the product label. I am not an agronomist.
I am banking on the monthly Sunday communion when I converse with the Almighty. I have and will continue to ask for benign weather to the South of Lincoln for the next several weeks until early August. No wind and heavy rain. And currently am negotiating my penance for such deliverance. The crops are getting very little spring nitrogen - possibly a few kgs at early flower.
