  • Poll: What’s the first thing you do on a rainy day?
    Weather is the one subject we just can’t help but talk about. As I sit here in southern Alberta and look out at the rain drops — albeit, not large amounts of it, but hey it’s rain — finally pitter-pattering against the window, I’m thinking about rainy-day traditions. On our farm, since ...
  • Multiple provinces could see snow ahead of the Victoria Day long weekend
    Up to six provinces could see moisture in the way of snow by week’s end according to the latest weather tracking systems evaluated by meteorologists on May 16. This current system is likely to affect Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec with the greatest chance for measurable snow in northwestern Ontario on ...
  • Why dairy farmers should park the planter and harvest forage
    As corn and soybean planters roll on in Ontario, first-cut forage is nearing optimum harvest timing. The question many dairy producers will wrestle with in the days ahead is whether to continue planting corn and soys or park the planter and harvest forage. Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs ...
  • Xarvio announces new weather connectivity options for Canadian farmers

  • Scrambling for eternal optimism as the drought continues in the southern prairies
    As I sit in my home office and listen to my house get sandblasted, while patio furniture flys around the yard, and watching topsoil swirl left and right, I can’t help but think — is this what The Dust Bowl looked like? Despite many areas of Canada experiencing too much moisture ...
  • A cooler than normal summer predicted for Ontario and eastern Canada
    Producers in southern Ontario and throughout eastern Canada are likely to experience a cool and wet spring followed by a summer with lower than normal temperatures, as they push through to harvest. Temperature and all things weather however, are a matter of perception. Keeping in mind a dry spring for Ontario is ...
  • Manitoba is too wet, Alberta is too dry, is Saskatchewan just right? Taking a look at the spring Prairie weather forecast
    April brought upwards of 100 millimeters of rain to parts of Manitoba with a large part of Alberta begging for even a fraction of that moisture, as Saskatchewan is stuck in the middle with a grab-bag of weather ranging from average moisture, too much or not enough. One thing is ...
  • Corn School: Where tillage fits in a weed control strategy
    Tillage can play an effective role in warming and preparing soil for planting. When it comes to weed control, however, there are limitations and growers need to have a plan in place to tackle weeds that escape uprooting by cultivators, or those tenacious plants that manage to re-root and grow on ...
  • Soybean School: Aggressive and timely scouting boosts weed control
    A cool, wet spring has slowed fieldwork and dreams of early planting appear to be disappearing as the calendar turns to May. But the backward conditions have not stalled weed growth in fields across Ontario. That means growers will need to keep a close eye on winter annuals and mounting weed pressure ...
  • Assistance available for Saskatchewan livestock producers who suffered losses due to extreme weather
    The Saskatchewan government, through the Provincial Disaster Assistance Program (PDAP), is offering some relief to livestock producers who were negatively impacted by the recent severe spring weather. With several storms taking a toll on parts of the province, specifically the southeast portion, livestock losses were imminent and have been reported throughout the ...
  • Corn School: Fit soil key to planting success
    As warmer weather arrives and fields start to dry up, many growers are tempted to begin field work in preparation for planting. Working soil that’s not fit, however, can prove problematic later in the spring and throughout the growing season. On this episode of RealAgriculture’s Corn School, we catch up with ...
  • Saskatchewan caught in the middle of too-wet vs. too-dry Prairie conditions
    With half of the province fairly dry and the other half still under a decent amount of snow, Saskatchewan’s most recent spring runoff report is all over the map, figuratively and literally. The west is following suit of Alberta and is showing dryer conditions, where large portions of the eastern side ...
  • Soybean School: What to do with corn residue
    Corn yield records are made to be broken. That was certainly the case in Ontario in 2021 when the provincial average topped 200 bushels per acre, smashing the previous average yield mark. But all the corn brings with it an abundance of organic matter to return to the soil. When it ...
  • Soybean School: When should you plant for high yield?
    In recent years, leading U.S. soybean researchers have touted the benefits of early planting to reduce the loss of yield potential as planting stretches into late April and pushes into May. But does this research give growers clear direction on the best time to plant further north in Ontario? Horst Bohner, ...
  • Needed moisture falls in Saskatchewan, as dry areas of Alberta start seeding
    With some southern Alberta farmers already in the fields seeding, many producers are still waiting ?— and for good reason ?— as the weather across the Prairies can, and has, turned on a dime. The unpredictability that is spring weather is being demonstrated perfectly in Saskatchewan this week. The southwest portion of ...
