Growers who want to include more pulse crops in their rotations need information on where in the rotation to add the pulses for the most benefits. So, a Saskatchewan project is underway to look more closely at one possible rotational effect: whether growing canola right before a pulse crop affects the amount of nitrogen fixation in the pulse.

The patent on the first-generation Roundup Ready soybean trait expired in 2011, leaving the temptation for growers to save their own seed or purchase bin-run seed from others. However, using bin-run Roundup Ready soybean seed comes with agronomic and legal implications.

An early harvest has come to a halt as cold wet weather conditions sweep across the Prairies. The cooler humid weather has stalled progress in almost all three provinces, raising concerns about crop quality and frost damage. However, the recent rain has improved soil moisture conditions which is good news for fall seeded crop.

There’s no doubt cover crops provide an abundance of benefits for producers, including boosting soil health and improving crop performance. However, not all cover crops are created equally, especially when it comes to ensuring cover crops don’t become a weed in crop rotations.

Row-to-row variance with bulk metering systems wasn’t really on the radar until recently, because farmers couldn’t really do much about it. Recent research by the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI) at Portage la Prairie, Man. identified how much variation actually exists.

“Our growing conditions in southern Saskatchewan are different than the traditional soybean growing areas, and even different from some of the soybean areas in Manitoba. We wanted to see if the seeding recommendations in Manitoba would work here,” Holzapfel says.

Lacking an efficient hybrid production system in mustards, the advantages of increased hybrid vigour and yield have left Prairie mustard growers wanting more. However, a breakthrough by Bifang Cheng, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s mustard breeder in Saskatoon, has made hybrid brown and oriental (Brassica juncea) hybrid development a reality. The first hybrid brown mustard, B3318, was supported for registration in 2018.

Research is building on the many benefits of cover crops, from their ability to help boost yields in subsequent crops to improved soil structure and reduced erosion.

In the fall of 2016, early snowfall and excess moisture resulted in 2.5 million acres of unharvested crop in fields over the winter, primarily in Saskatchewan and Alberta. Although these unusual conditions happen rarely, taking a look back at the impacts on the 2017 cropping season and some of the lessons learned can be useful.

With high canola prices relative to other commodities, the temptation to run continuous canola is high. But does it really pay in the short term? A research study shows that net returns aren’t necessarily better, and that insect and disease pressures increase over time.
