Each pulse species requires certain bacteria, usually a rhizobium inoculant, in order for plants to fix their own nitrogen. Once nodules form on the plant roots, those little factories can provide much of the crop’s N needs, but there are several decisions farmers have to make at seeding to ensure excellent nodulation, and there are… Read More

Soybean yield contest winners typically rely on weekly tissue testing and foliar feeding to help produce eye-popping, trophy-winning yields. But does this tool have the power to make yield for growers who test and feed just a couple of times during the season? SGS Canada agronomist Jack Legg thinks the practice makes sense for a… Read More

While fungicide resistance evolves similarly to herbicide resistance, it can be more challenging to assess given the patchy nature of disease infection across a field, the decreased incidence of disease in dry years, and the multiple lifecycles some pulse diseases complete in a year. Bethany Wyatt, senior technical service specialist with BASF, says that Group… Read More

Former U.S. president Ronald Reagan popularized the phrase “trust, but verify” in the context of the Cold War, but similar logic applies in the active battle against increasingly-prevalent glyphosate-resistant kochia. It’s a safe assumption to trust that kochia is glyphosate-resistant in much of Western Canada, but there’s still value in verifying, says Ian Epp, agronomy specialist… Read More

How do corn hybrids respond to foliar feeding? And what’s the potential yield impact and return on that investment? Those are questions PRIDE Seeds agronomist Stephanie Myslik tackles on this episode of RealAgriculture Corn School. In 2023, Myslik ran a trial to evaluate how tissue testing and foliar feeding could impact the PRIDE hybrid A6929G4…. Read More

When it comes to weed control in soybeans, it’s always best to start clean and stay clean. But when fieldwork and planting are delayed thanks to poor spring conditions, growers are often forced to plant now and spray later. That’s the situation many Ontario growers have experienced in 2024 as wet spring conditions dictated that… Read More

So many decisions that influence yield need to be made throughout the growing season, and it begins with the optimal seeding rate. As discussed in this Wheat School episode, seeding rate is a factor in tillering, tiller timing, and head size. The ideal seeding rate can also help with a smoother harvest and to time… Read More

Controlling weed populations in fields destined for pulse crops is complicated by a few factors, including pulse sensitivity to carryover, poor early crop competition, and herbicide-resistant problem weeds. Sean McKnight, technical marketing specialist for herbicides with BASF, explains in this Pulse School episode how the concept of herbicide layering is an especially useful one for… Read More

Red Sun Farms in Kingsville, Ont., is one of 170 greenhouse vegetable farms in Ontario. Across the province, the Ontario greenhouse vegetable industry grows tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers in 3,900 acres of greehhouse, producing 521 million kilograms of fresh vegetables with a farm gate value of more than $1.4 billion. On this episode of Profitable… Read More
