To investigate the use of wetting agents, applied directly to canola seed to understand its impact on crop establishment and yield in water repellent soils. These results will also be used to benchmark the effectiveness of seed coating wetters against the current in-furrow banded applications, with relation to both ease of operation and cost-benefit.


In late May, good germinating rainfall was sufficient to remove the experimental site’s water repellence limitation. The economic loss associated with wetter application significantly reduced using seed treatment approach.
