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.

Wetlands – havens for human and wildlife

Wetlands – havens for human and wildlife

World Wetlands Day, celebrated every February 2nd, encourages citizens around the world to turn their thoughts to wetlands and their importance in our lives. Wetlands provide a reliable food supply and help purify freshwater for billions of global citizens. Like giant sponges, they absorb and replenish water to buffer flood and drought risks. Wetlands are also vital nesting, breeding and staging grounds for waterfowl and many other species and continue to be among the most diverse ecosystems of all. And that’s barely skimming the surface of wetlands’ wonders.

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.
