Golden rules for canola in the low-rainfall zone

Published: 12 Feb 2021

Canola is increasingly being grown outside its traditional Western Australian heartlands in the state’s medium to high-rainfall cropping areas and becoming an important part of farming systems in the low-rainfall zone (LRZ).

Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) initiated this booklet to assist growers in the LRZ, or Agzone 4, to maximise the potential of this important break crop in their unique environment.

This publication consolidates available research on successfully growing canola in the LRZ of WA and addresses key agronomic issues including crop establishment, plant nutrition, harvesting, and weed, disease and insect management.
