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.

More glyphosate-tolerant crops create need for alternative canola system

More glyphosate-tolerant crops create need for alternative canola system

Growers tightening their canola, soybean and corn rotations may face more weed control challenges, especially if their rotation includes two glyphosate-tolerant crops.

This could be the case for many Manitoba growers who are including glyphosate-tolerant canola, corn and soybeans into their rotation. The province has seen significant growth in the number of soybean acres over recent years and, with a large number of growers already growing canola, the possibility for growers to have both included in a rotation is common.

New knowledge and fresh thinking: Businesses can’t afford to miss the student talent advantage

New knowledge and fresh thinking: Businesses can’t afford to miss the student talent advantage

By Paul Davidson
President, Universities Canada

Young people across Canada recently headed off to university for the fall semester. Those of us a little older may feel a twinge of envy, as we remember our own time on leafy campuses in September.
