For more than a century, growers have honed their management practices to meet the needs of the wheat-dominated Inland Pacific Northwest. As a result, even though we have a broad range of soil types and environments, the region lacks crop diversity. Oilseeds, however, are recognized as potential rotational crops due to their ability to extract deep soil moisture in arid environments. For growers interested in adjusting wheat-based management strategies for oilseed production, this publication describes the physiological differences between crops and recommends modifications based on those differences.
