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.

Protect flax at seeding time for a healthy, vigorous crop

Protect flax at seeding time for a healthy, vigorous crop

Areas of Western Canada experienced significant moisture during the 2016 growing season, making conditions favourable for the development of increased seed- and soil-borne diseases in flax.

Seed- and soil-borne diseases that appear in flax include seed rot, seedling blight and root rot, and these diseases are caused by the Fusarium and Rhizoctonia solani fungi. Seed rot, seedling blight and root rot can lead to significant reductions in germination and emergence, and ultimately a reduction in yield potential.
