Field Trial Insect Monitoring

As part of the OSU-ODA Oilseeds project, OSU Entomologists Drs. Amy Dreves and Glenn Fisher monitored the large scale grower and small plot Hyslop Canola trials.

In 2007, insects did not reach levels of significance in the winter canola crops. Seed pod weevils were found in all grower fields at levels of up to 4% pod infestation. In 2008 pollen beetles were present in grower fields but the beetle species is not the same as that which has caused damage in other seed producing areas.
