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

After a challenging spring that saw getting the crop planted take precedent over pre-seed weed control, soybean growers in Western Canada have had to be diligent in catching up with potentially yield-robbing kochia, lamb’s quarters, volunteer canola, and other weeds in-crop. To keep yield losses down to less than five per cent, most soybean varieties… Read More

All the “knee-high by the first (or fourth) of July” photos have been posted on social media, with the crop looking nice from above; but what’s going on below the canopy? Now is the time to check weed populations and assess herbicide performance, says Jeanette Gaultier, senior technical services specialist with BASF, joining us for… Read More

Before applying a plant growth regulator containing chlormequat to wheat, make sure you’ve confirmed you have a buyer willing to purchase it, because most of the major grain companies say they won’t. Potentially a valuable tool in reducing lodging, many growers are interested in applying Manipulator, a PGR introduced in Canada by Engage Agro in… Read More

This year, the organizers of the Crop Diagnostic School in Carman, Manitoba, decided to do something a little old-school. “We decided to demo soil-applied herbicides here at the farm this year for the Diagnostic School, in part because we’re seeing an increased use in the products,” Jeanette Gaultier explains in the following interview. Gaultier (who may or… Read More
