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.
Increase expected for Canadian wheat acres in 2015
According to Statistics Canada, 2014 national wheat production (excluding durum) decreased by 22.26 percent when compared to 2013. Harvested area decreased by 10.28 percent and average yield decreased by 13.35 percent. The results of 2014 came from a combination of aspects such as the late harvest and excessive moisture affecting the amount of acres seeded in eastern Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Get crops off to the best start with a pre-seed burndown
A spring burndown is a critical step in preparing the soil for seeding; however, it can often be overlooked if growers are rushing to get ahead of the growing season. Seeding crops into clean fields means they don’t have to compete for moisture, sunlight or nutrients from weeds. Seeding crops into clean fields will help get them off to the best possible start but there are a number of things to keep in mind that will increase the effectiveness of any burndown.
Un agriculteur souligne les avantages du programme AgriRetour
Le programme AgriRetour a été conçu pour aider les agriculteurs à retourner au travail qu’ils aiment – l’exploitation agricole. André Veilleux, un producteur de sirop d’érable du Québec, fait exactement cela grâce à son nouveau fauteuil roulant élévateur.
Farmer Highlights Benefits of the Back to Ag Program
The Back to Ag program was envisioned to help farmers get back to the work they love – farming. André Veilleux, a maple syrup producer from Quebec, is doing just that thanks to his new stand-up wheelchair.
On March 1, 2008, André’s life drastically changed when a maple tree he was felling crushed him, severing his spinal cord, fracturing six vertebrae and resulting in paraplegia. André would never walk again.
