Canola Field Day Planned in Kingman County


MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State University will conduct a tour of two winter canola production fields in Kingman County on Thursday, Nov. 8, said Mike Stamm, K-State Research and Extension canola breeder.

“This will be a great opportunity for producers and landowners to find out more about winter canola production in south central Kansas, and how winter canola can be a beneficial rotation crop with winter wheat,” Stamm said.

The tour begins at 10 a.m. at Maloney Farms, which is 1/2 mile north of NW 20th St. and NW 30th Ave Intersection, near Kingman.

The second stop will be at 1 p.m. at Swinehart Farms, which is at the intersection of SE 160th St. and SE 160th Ave., near Norwich.

For more information, contact Matt Clark, Kingman County Research and Extension agent, at 620-532-5131 or e-mail mkc@ksu.edu.
