Factors to consider


These factors can all affect establishment (or field germination) rates. Use your experience of growing canola under similar conditions to estimate the likely rate in your chosen paddock this season.

Environmental conditions

  • Soil type
  • Soul moisture
  • Disease pressure
  • Pest pressure
  • Weed pressure

Farming practices

  • Sowing time
  • Seed bed preparation
  • Seeding method
If not, you can either make an estimate or enter 80% as the default rate.

The information provided by this calculator is intended for use as a guide only. BASF cannot guarantee that every result given is without flaw of any kind. While BASF has taken all due care to ensure that the information provided is accurate, various factors, including planting times, soil and environmental conditions may alter the characteristics and performance of plants. The seeding rate calculations produced by this calculator are built on certain assumptions around average growing season rainfall, target plant densities and requires the user to submit their own assessment of their expected field germination rate for the seed. Field germination rates can be influenced by both environmental conditions (soil type, soil moisture, disease pressure, pest pressure, weed pressure) as well as chosen farming practices (sowing time, seed bed preparation and seeding methods). For application to specific conditions and to select a field germination rate applicable to your conditions it is recommended that you seek further advice from a local farming professional.
