Soybean outlook calls for record production in 2014

Farmers expect lower levels of production for most field crops this year compared with the bumper crops on the Canadian Prairies in 2013. However, according to Statistics Canada, soybean production could climb to a sixth consecutive record high. >> Read full article

Searching for solutions

Peter Johnson, provincial cereal specialist with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, along with Dr. David Hooker of the University of Guelph, Ridgetown Campus, is leading trials to adapt Greenseeker technology to Ontario’s conditions. They’re testing its ability to analyze the nitrogen (N) needs of the wheat crop, which would help farmers apply the right amount of fertilizer. >> Read full article

Herbicide impacts on establishing cover crops

It is well known that cover crops offer many potential benefits, including management of erosion, sequestering of soil nitrogen, improvement of soil and pest control. The importance of successful cover crops is well recognized by farmers, who have greatly increased cover crop acreage in parts of Canada and the United States over the last few years.

Among other studies, one research project during the fall of 2012 found that corn planted after cover crops had almost a 10 per cent increase in yield compared to side-by-side fields with no cover crops, and soybean yields were similarly improved by almost 12 per cent.
