Question of the Week – Wild Radish in Canola Dyeing

Posted by romeethredge on February 6, 2014

Yes,  last week I asked about what was happening in the photo of 2 plants. There was a wild mustard plant and a canola plant and they are related. The canola is the larger plants below and the wild mustard is paler with the more serrated leaves.

Marvin Stewart of Dow Agrosciences answered it correctly. He said , “Canola ( Brassica)with Clearfield technology with no herbicide effect. Wild mustard also a brassica (weed) exhibiting herbicide symptoms.”

He’s right, the canola can have a certain herbicide sprayed on it to kill the related wild mustard due to herbicide technology that allows the wild mustard to be taken out. These plants were sprayed about a week or so ago.
