Fusarium head blight pressure hurts bottom line

Fusarium head blight pressure hurts bottom line

Economic loss from reduced grade and yield in cereal crops can be directly related to fusarium head blight pressure. Fusarium head blight is a fungal disease of small grains, such as wheat, barley, oats and corn that hinders kernel development. It spreads and infects crops very easily due to the dispersed ascospores that are spread both by rain splash and wind.

More herbicide options available for Western Canadian corn growers

More herbicide options available for Western Canadian corn growers

Corn is not a crop that is traditionally produced in many parts of Western Canada. But in recent years we’ve seen corn production in Alberta expand to thousands of seeded acres in 2014. Manitoba has grown to become one of the top corn producing areas in Canada and the crop has also secured its place as part of a regular part of rotation in many areas of Saskatchewan.

Two-pass system offers protection for cereals

Two-pass system offers protection for cereals

A two-pass system can improve the yield and quality of your cereal crop to help get the best grade possible and highest return on your investment.

The first pass boosts yield

Research shows that 50 to 65 percent of yield is created at the flag and penultimate leaf stage. Protecting the plant at this stage is so important because leaf diseases such as tan spot and septoria leaf spot block out part of the green leaves, they reduce the plant’s capacity for photosynthesis and result in less head fill in wheat.

Protect your canola from sclerotinia

Protect your canola from sclerotinia

A wet spring with moderate temperatures could create the conditions necessary for sclerotinia on your farm. If you don’t spray for sclerotinia or you don’t spray at the right time, your canola field could lose greater than half of its yield. If you wait until the first signs of the disease appear, it will be too late.

“The key to optimum sclerotinia control is timing,” said Glen Forster, Technical Marketing Specialist with BASF Canada.

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.
