Harvest Hub: Putting crops to alternate use in Manitoba
Sponsored by Dekalb
Crop conditions on the Prairies are extremely hot and dry, which is changing crop outlooks and plans created at seeding. Combined with the severe livestock feed shortage developing, affected producers might be considering converting some poorer-performing grains, pulses or oilseeds to greenfeed or silage.
David Van Deynze, chief product officer with the Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC), discusses what the recently declared agricultural state of disaster in several Manitoba rural municipalities means, the process for changing crops to alternate use without affecting your AgriInsurance coverage, and what’s unique about the Hay Disaster Benefit this year.
