Canola is attracting the interest of Texas farmers, offering the possibility of diversifying crop portfolios, says Clark Neely, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service oilseed specialist at College Station.

Neely was one of several experts on hand last week at a 2014 Winter Canola Field Day near College Station.

Canola field varieties were in full bloom amidst a backdrop of sunny skies and breezy conditions as participants learned more about the winter crop and viewed trials.

“Our trials look beautiful right now,” said Dr. Clark Neely, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service oilseed specialist, College Station, who was joined by experts at the 2014 Winter Canola Field Day. The half-day educational program attracted industry experts, university researchers and producers.
