- Main article: Canola
Canola is one of the three principle crops that the player can immediately begin to grow at game-start, since all of the equipment is already available.
Canola is planted using a regular Sowing Machine, on a field that has been prepared by a Cultivator or Plow. There are 3 Sowing Machines available in the base game. More advanced Canola Sowing Machines also cultivate the soil as they sow, removing the need to pre-cultivate it.
After four growing phases (about 21 hours of in-game time, at the "Fast" growing speed setting), Canola is ready to harvest. There are many Harvesting Headers in the game that are capable of harvesting Canola, and most are quite wide, meaning that the work should be done rather quickly.
As with all other crops, a Canola field can be Fertilized in order to double its yield.
Harvested Canola can be stored in Tipper Trailers or offloaded into the Silo at the farm. It can be sold in a variety of locations on each map, for a variable price that depends on current market forces. Generally, Canola gives the smallest amount of yield per hectare, but the highest price per liter. This makes its selling price one of the least lucrative Crops, superior only to harvested Corn. Nonetheless, it is only somewhat less lucrative than Wheat or Barley.
