Wheat School: Be Careful When Spraying After Cool Nights



Across the country we continue to see winter like conditions. Corn has suffered significant frost damage in Ontario and farmers in the western provinces continue to battle snow drifts.

Whether you are in the west or Ontario you need to be careful when spraying after a cold night.

In the video Luc shows some plots of wheat that were damaged by untimely spraying.
