The Van Burgsteden Canola

   The weather in Saskatchewan was a bit tougher than in Manitoba... just like their football team.

Darla sent me a note this week saying they got the canola harvested.  They had a very wet summer.
Over double normal rainfall so the crops were on the poor side.  Harvest went well though and they were thankful for that.  Gerald said they got 25.514 net tonnes of cnola harvested ... There were 50 acres... So that made for a yield of 23 bu / acre  at a nice high price of  $13.44 / bu
Now they are applying fertilizer for next years crop !
