Have you seen the canola fields?

Motorists driving south of Augusta on Highway 77 have recently enjoyed seeing the springtime yellow flowering fields of one of the state’s most beautiful crops - canola.  The crop is not only pretty to see, but its seeds produce oil that has many human health benefits and meal that is used as a protein supplement for livestock.  The oil can also be for making biodiesel.
Canola has become more popular and a profitable rotational crop in the last 10 years for Kansas and is commonly grown in central and south central Kansas.
