Spring has been a nightmare and the toll it has taking on farmers in Western Canada is huge.  With a speculated 10 million acres being left unseeded, many farmers are wondering what they should be doing with their bare land.  Many people are talking about winter wheat to try and get some cover for winter and a jump on next spring.

I talked to Rob Saik, CEO of the AgriTrend Group of Companies about the challenges that are facing farmers and what he thinks are the options for farmers in 2010 for unseeded acres.

  1. Studies have shown you don’t need to work a green manure in to get its benefits, spraying it can work just as well plus preserve ground cover (and diesel fuel).

  2. Yes, I would agree, you don’t need to work it but farmers may want the tillage operation in the fall to even out the fields and take out some of the ruts that are going to be there.
