The future of lentils is bright

The future of lentils is bright

Canada has seen tremendous growth in lentil production as lentil consumption has soared over the last few years. According to Bert Vandenberg, University of Saskatchewan Plant Sciences Department, Crop Development Centre, world lentil consumption has gone up four to five times relative to the human population. Lentil production in Saskatchewan alone has gone from 25,000 acres in 1983 to more than three million acres today. With growth like this, it is no wonder the future looks so promising.

Optill is a good option for vertical tillage

Optill is a good option for vertical tillage

Canada fleabane is a major concern for growers, especially in soybeans since post emergent control options are limited. According to Peter Sikkema, a professor of field crop weed management at the University of Guelph’s Ridgetown campus, the presence of glyphosate-resistant weeds is increasing every year. Since Canada fleabane has wind-dispersed seeds which can produce upwards of 200,000 seeds per plant, it is no wonder resistant biotypes are have spread so quickly across Ontario.

Increase expected for Canadian wheat acres in 2015

According to Statistics Canada, 2014 national wheat production (excluding durum) decreased by 22.26 percent when compared to 2013. Harvested area decreased by 10.28 percent and average yield decreased by 13.35 percent. The results of 2014 came from a combination of aspects such as the late harvest and excessive moisture affecting the amount of acres seeded in eastern Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

Get crops off to the best start with a pre-seed burndown

A spring burndown is a critical step in preparing the soil for seeding; however, it can often be overlooked if growers are rushing to get ahead of the growing season. Seeding crops into clean fields means they don’t have to compete for moisture, sunlight or nutrients from weeds. Seeding crops into clean fields will help get them off to the best possible start but there are a number of things to keep in mind that will increase the effectiveness of any burndown.
