Making advancements on your farm operation by harvesting more than just your crops this season

Making advancements on your farm operation by harvesting more than just your crops this season

Grow the crop, harvest the crop, haul it to the elevator. If only farming were that simple.

The fact is, crop producers have more variables than ever to manage. Today’s growers not only need to manage the data from inputs and yields in each of their fields, but they also need to manage grain contracts and on-farm storage.

This matters because at harvest time growers are vividly reminded that the success of their year’s sweat and toil can often be determined by how much grain goes in and out of the bins and at what price is it sold.

New Clearfield Canola hybrids offer disease and agronomic performance along with specialty oil traits

Canola acres have grown 50 percent over the past ten years and will continue to grow, making it an economic driver for growers in Western Canada. This growth, which is accompanied by a demand for specialty canola oils such as high-oleic or omega 9 oils, strengthens the call for the development of new, high-performance seed varieties.

“Canola has become the real economic driver for a lot of farms in Western Canada. As a result, growers are increasing the frequency of it in their rotations,” said Derwyn Hammond, Area Agronomist with DuPont Pioneer.
