Happy Halloween! Thanks for tuning in to this RealAg Radio edition of Tuesdays with Lyndsey! On today’s show, we will hear from: Deb Stark, independent board member at the University of Guelph, on good governance; Jeanette Gaultier, with BASF, on a Canola School regarding verticillium of canola; and, Hear segments from The Agronomists with Marla… Read More

Verticillium has been impacting canola crops in Manitoba for over a decade, but it is now spreading across the Canadian Prairies. According to Jeanette Gaultier of BASF, while verticillium was first detected in Manitoba around ten years ago, it has since been found in every canola growing region of Canada, except the Atlantic provinces. Verticillium… Read More

Sclerotinia is predictably unpredictable. Always lurking but not always a problem, so making the call to protect canola flowers can be a tough one in dry years. To talk sclerotinia (also known as white mould of soybean and dry beans) prevention and management, special guest host Kelvin Heppner is joined by Jeanette Gaultier of BASF,… Read More

The rule of thumb for planting soybeans in Western Canada has generally been to wait until the soil is 10 degrees C — often after canola is in the ground, but there are a number of reasons, including historical yield data, that suggest the crop would benefit from earlier planting. This Soybean School episode, recorded… Read More

Happy Monday and welcome to another Agronomic Monday on RealAg Radio. Today, host Shaun Haney is joined live by RealAgriculture’s Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson, as they discuss a number of agronomy issues across Canada and also, things to keep in mind when it comes to soil health and everything that plays a part in producing… Read More

Not all glufosinate ammonium herbicide formulations are the same. This is especially important to note in areas that grow both glufosinate-tolerant (aka LibertyLink) corn and canola. A corn grower in Ontario, or in the Midwest U.S., who orders Liberty or glufosinate from a retailer would likely receive a formulation containing 200g of active ingredient per… Read More

Does it pay to invest in weed control in a dry year? When soil moisture is scarce, one way to help conserve it is to prevent weeds – they can rob the precious resource from emerging and growing plants. On this episode of RealAgriculture’s Soybean School, we travel to the BASF research and development site… Read More

Welcome to this Agronomic Monday here on RealAg Radio. On today’s show you’ll hear: Peter “Wheat Pete” Johnson talking about the fungicide and nitrogen decision in a dry year; Autumn Barnes, agronomy specialist at Canola Council of Canada, talking about plant stand evaluations and a new online tool; Harold Brown, technical service specialist with BASF, talking… Read More

Proper staging is critical when applying in-crop herbicides in corn, but there are multiple ways to measure corn’s growth stages, and herbicide labels don’t always use the same method. Agronomists often use the “leaf collar” — or V-stage — method to describe growth stages, while others use plant height. However, herbicide labels often refer to… Read More

For many, December is a time to reflect, to really sit back and look at what the previous months looked like. What were the highs? What were the lows? Despite 2020 being the year it was — and one I certainly won’t forget in my lifetime — it was also a whole lot of fun… Read More

Welcome to the top of the week’s RealAg Radio show! On this Agronomic Monday you’ll hear from: Tracey Baute, field crop entomologist with OMAFRA, on Bt resistant corn rootworm; A product spotlight with Mark Kerry of DEKALB Canada; Tom Wolf of AgriMetrix and Sprayers 101, on keeping spray records and reflecting on them; and, Jeanette… Read More
