Extremely dry conditions in Western Canada have challenged growers at every turn. Now, assessing soil nutrient levels and preparing for next year’s crop is proving difficult, as excessively dry conditions challenge nutrient cycling and mineralization and soil sampling. In the east, a relatively early wheat harvest offers opportunity for cover crops and plenty of time to plan for proper fall fertility passes for winter wheat.

In this episode of The Agronomists, Federated Co-op’s Mike Hilhorst and Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs’ Jake Munroe tackle tough questions such as estimating N left behind by a smaller than average crop, the importance of soil sampling later in the fall, if you should feed a cover crop or let it scavenge, and how to approach soil sampling in a strip tillage system.

Catch a new episode of The Agronomists every Monday night at 8 pm E!
