Fungicide resistance: Learning from other countries
For decades, Canadian farmers have heard about the threat of herbicide resistance, and in some cases have adapted their farm practices to manage it first-hand. We hear far less about fungicide resistance.
Fungicide resistance has been found in other parts of the world, especially in Northern Europe. In Europe, the most important cereal diseases are Septoria tritici blotch (Septoria) of wheat, rusts and powdery mildew. Septoria has developed widespread resistance cases to the strobilurin fungicides, resulting in a significant shift to the triazoles.
Wheat: Protecting your investment
Canada is the world’s sixth largest producer of wheat, and one of the largest exporters. With wheat being one of Canada’s major crops, maximizing those wheat acres is a priority for growers.
New Clearfield canola varieties for 2016 season
Canola is one of the most revenue-producing crops and widely grown across western Canada. Each growing season brings challenges and many of these challenges are unique to each farm operation and regional in nature. With tighter canola rotations, this list grows to include insect, weed and disease pressure as well as variable moisture and fertility conditions all working together to reduce yields.
Herbicide-tolerant canola systems offer growers a tool in managing weed (and ultimately disease) pressure resulting in a higher yielding canola crop.

Clearfield lentil varieties top choice of Crop Development Centre at University of Saskatchewan
The Crop Development Centre (CDC) at the University of Saskatchewan’s Plant Sciences Department is making progressive changes to its lentil breeding programs, as the organization has recognized the merits of Clearfield lentil varieties as the best option for continued research innovation in the Canadian market. The move will help ensure the CDC’s research is more reflective of the most popular production system for lentil crops used by western Canadian growers.
Solid core is in strong demand
When it comes to efficient in-furrow inoculation, it is all about flow. Ensuring accurate and consistent placement near the seed will help improve nodulation and ensure the correct amount of product is being used. Traditional granular peat formulations can bridge easily because of higher dust and inconsistent granule size and shape. Exclusive to BASF, Nodulator XL SCG (Solid Core Granule) offers growers a unique, primarily clay-based carrier with less dust and more uniform granule size for better flowability.
Unique solid core technology in high demand for soybean growers
As growers look for ways to maximize yield and efficiency in their soybean crop, solid core granule technology is becoming increasingly important for soybean inoculation. Solid core technology ensures accurate and consistent placement to improve nodulation and ensure the correct amount of product is being used.
