The article discusses the use of rotation for the winter canola operation in Oklahoma. It mentions that winter canola yields more money compared to winter wheat which is considered as one of the good reasons for planting winter canola. In addition, several problems occurred in operations that do not use the rotation system which include the weed problems resulted from continuous growth of winter wheat.
