Farmers across Western Canada may notice two very remarkable things on the Prairie landscape soon — stand alone CLAAS dealerships and brightly coloured Xerion tractors. Caterpillar recently announced its shift out of the agriculture market, which started a chain reaction that will see CLAAS, a company who had a distribution deal for its Lexion combines… Read More

We’ve all seen it: a grain bin lid that’s perpetually blowing open, or a rope that has completely frayed. It’s hard to ignore, as we all know the importance of keeping grain protected from weather and predators. So the argument ensues. Who will be the one to crawl up the ladder? And how many more times will this battle rage… Read More

At up to 10.5mph planting speed, the Tempo planter from Vaderstad will certainly get the job done in a hurry. The unique seed meter operates through a system of checks and balances to eliminate double seeding, while working quickly enough to keep up to the incredible ground speeds. Check out more of our 2014 coverage of Canada’s… Read More

One nozzle type rarely does all jobs well, and it’s tempting to find one or two general purpose nozzles and switch them out between jobs. Hypro has a better idea, and is rolling out its Duo React nozzle body that allows farmers to choose — automatically — up to three configurations from one nozzle body…. Read More

The evolution of farm machinery has occurred incredibly fast, with the first engine-powered tractors showing up in the mid 1800s. Driven by steam engines, these tractors were loud and, compared to today’s standards, far from comfortable. In the late 19th century, the first gasoline-powered tractor was built, no doubt impressing the farming community. Today, machinery… Read More

Whether you’re harvesting or hauling grain in the off-season, augers play a huge role in on-farm efficiency. Over the years we’ve seen the introduction of larger capacity augers, and the hoppers to match. Eventually, these hoppers were on wheels, able to easily swing right into place. Now, there are hoppers available to producers that can actually… Read More

But now farmers want to know — What’s the best way to condition canola for storage over the summer? This summer, the Prairie Agriculture Machinery Institute (PAMI) is running a trial (funded by the three… Read More

Do you ever wonder where equipment manufacturers get their great new ideas? While some will get inspiration from their own on-the-farm experiences, some new innovations are dreamed up on paper long before they ever hit the field. Still other manufacturers use a collaborative approach, seeking out feedback from their customers and problem solving for them…. Read More
