The purpose of this guide is to summarize current information on canola growth and fertilizer requirements. Canola is distinct from wheat in terms of growth habit, nutrient uptake, and nutrient removal in the seed; it requires more nitrogen and sulfur than wheat to achieve the same yields. However, because canola plant residue is higher in nitrogen and phosphorus than wheat straw, cycling of nutrients from residue to the subsequent crop may be an important rotational benefit of canola.
