Carinata Growth Update

Posted by romeethredge on December 12, 2014

This Carinata on the Seminole/Miller county line north of Donalsonville, is up to a good stand and is growing well.

It won’t be long until this oilseed is powering  jets in the sky overhead.

Here’s a couple of photos taken a week ago when Miller county Agent Brock Ward was looking at the Carinata with me.

Carinata

Posted by romeethredge on October 6, 2014

Carinata is a potential crop for the tristate area but the herbicide restrictions may not allow most folks to grow it.

Carinata is an oilseed crop that grows similar to canola, it is used in production of a biofuel that can be used in jet engines.

Canola

Posted by romeethredge on January 29, 2014

Canola is an oilseed we grow in winter. Here is Stephen Houston in his field in central Seminole county. He says the canola seems to be growing slowly due to the cold weather.  Heat really affects the yield at blooming and pod set so a cool spring would better for good yields.
