Fire prevention tips to give you a silent night

The holiday season is one of the most joyful times of the year for many families. But it’s also one of the peak periods for accidental home fires, partly due to the increased use of candles, heaters, tree lights, even cooking (none of which mix well with several glasses of eggnog!).

Fungicide resistance: Learning from other countries

Fungicide resistance: Learning from other countries

For decades, Canadian farmers have heard about the threat of herbicide resistance, and in some cases have adapted their farm practices to manage it first-hand. We hear far less about fungicide resistance.

Fungicide resistance has been found in other parts of the world, especially in Northern Europe. In Europe, the most important cereal diseases are Septoria tritici blotch (Septoria) of wheat, rusts and powdery mildew. Septoria has developed widespread resistance cases to the strobilurin fungicides, resulting in a significant shift to the triazoles.

New Clearfield canola varieties for 2016 season

New Clearfield canola varieties for 2016 season

Canola is one of the most revenue-producing crops and widely grown across western Canada. Each growing season brings challenges and many of these challenges are unique to each farm operation and regional in nature. With tighter canola rotations, this list grows to include insect, weed and disease pressure as well as variable moisture and fertility conditions all working together to reduce yields.

Herbicide-tolerant canola systems offer growers a tool in managing weed (and ultimately disease) pressure resulting in a higher yielding canola crop.

Solid core is in strong demand

Solid core is in strong demand

When it comes to efficient in-furrow inoculation, it is all about flow. Ensuring accurate and consistent placement near the seed will help improve nodulation and ensure the correct amount of product is being used. Traditional granular peat formulations can bridge easily because of higher dust and inconsistent granule size and shape. Exclusive to BASF, Nodulator XL SCG (Solid Core Granule) offers growers a unique, primarily clay-based carrier with less dust and more uniform granule size for better flowability.
