Increase expected for Canadian wheat acres in 2015

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

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.

The evolution of Canada’s most profitable crop

The evolution of Canada’s most profitable crop

From its inception in the 1970s to today, canola has steadily evolved and become the most profitable crop in Canada.

In the 1990s, canola moved from open pollinated cultivars to high yielding hybrids. In 1995, the first herbicide-tolerant variety was released followed by the introduction of disease-resistant varieties.

As canola production continues to evolve, growers look for innovative tools and technologies to help meet challenges and maximize canola production.

Protecting grain grades with two-pass fungicide system

Protecting grain grades with two-pass fungicide system

For the second harvest season, producers in Western Canada have had the freedom to market their grains to a buyer of their choice. With this freedom, producing a high-quality and high-yielding crop has become critical. In order to satisfy individual buyers and meet strict market grade tolerances, it is important that growers take a proactive approach and manage disease pathogens within their cropping systems.
