Event is Largest Canola Education Event in Kansas-Oklahoma Region


MANHATTAN, Kan. – Canola production will be taken to the next level at this year’s Canola College, scheduled for March 28 at the Garfield County Fairgrounds Pavilion in Enid, Okla. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., and the conference will last until 3:30 p.m.

Those who attend will have the opportunity to interact with more the 200 new and veteran canola producers and industry representatives from Kansas and Oklahoma, said Kansas State University agronomist Mike Stamm.

“This is the premier canola production education event in the Kansas-Oklahoma region,” said Stamm, who is the canola breeder with K-State Research and Extension. “At this year’s conference, there will be four concurrent breakout sessions throughout the day, covering everything from canola basics to producer experiences. Speakers will also discuss insect control, weed control, harvest management, and the benefits of a canola-wheat rotation.”

Lunch will be served. There is no charge to attend Canola College. Attendees are asked to register, however, for the meal count. To register, go to Canola College registration.

Canola College is a joint effort of Kansas State University, Oklahoma State University, the Great Plains Canola Association, and partners from the canola industry. For more information, contact Mike Stamm at 785-532-3871 or mjstamm@ksu.edu.
