Olds College is conducting in-field trials for fungicide/desiccant variable rate technology (VRT) applications to determine how they affect production costs, profitability, and operational requirements. The trials are occurring within canola fields and VRT will be evaluated on plant health, pest pressures, yield, and harvested product volume and quality. Hummingbird Technologies will be used to develop prescription (Rx) maps needed to apply products using a variable-rate method.
