  • Drought concerns running high as #plant21 begins in earnest
    This week’s Farmer Rapid Fire on RealAg Radio has confirmed one thing: there is some serious drought out there — especially across the southern parts of Western Canada. The severity changes pending what pocket you belong to, but even areas such as the Palliser Triangle, which is known for its dry ...
  • Soybean School: Plant cold if weather looks good and soil is fit
    Over the past decade, growers have pushed soybean planting dates earlier as they pursue higher yields. Earlier planting extends the growing season, but rolling out the planter in late April also impacts several other factors that contribute to yield, says Horst Bohner, soybean specialist for the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food ...

  • The Agronomists, Ep 18 — Rob Miller and Jason Voogt on pre-emerge and early weed control
    Start clean, stay clean is the motto when it comes to weed control. Super dry conditions, however, can throw a wrench in the best laid plans, as soil-applied herbicides may be less effective and timing a first pass is tricker as weeds are slow to emerge. To discuss per-emerge and early ...
  • Ontario spring planting weather trend still unclear amid very cold weather pattern
    The 2020-2021 winter weather has been somewhat surprising, given that the typical polar vortex took its time getting to Canada. But it’s here now and until it moves on, Eric Snodgrass, senior atmospheric scientist with Nutrien Ag Solutions, says he’s not comfortable in giving a planting weather forecast. Snodgrass says that modeling ...
  • Weather trends point to continued drought concern for the Prairies
    If you’re on the Canadian Prairies, chances are you could likely describe this winter as “meh.” There hasn’t been a lot of snowfall in most areas, and temperatures — until the last week or so — have been fairly mild. Eric Snodgrass, principal atmospheric scientist with Nutrien Ag Solutions, agrees, calling ...
  • RealAg LIVE! with Eric Snodgrass on flash droughts and spring forecasts
    There are few things as popular for farmers to discuss than the weather. While it’s still too early in the year to get a solid handle on spring trends, there are some fascinating weather patterns at play. To translate all the temperature, wind, moisture, and weather flows, we go to Eric ...
  • Soil School: Does organic matter really matter?
    Every conversation on soil health these days eventually comes around to the topic of organic matter. Does it really matter? What percentage should farmers have in their soil? How do you conserve organic matter? How do you build it? On this episode of Soil School, Bernard Tobin and University of Minnesota soil ...
  • Wild winds whip across southern prairies
    Let’s face it — the prairies are no stranger to winds. However, Wednesday’s wind events have wreaked some intense havoc across southern Alberta and southern Saskatchewan, and the pressure system is expected to continue heading east. This isn’t just a matter of 20 km/hr winds — many areas have experienced 80 ...
  • The good, the bad, and potentially ugly weather for Western Canada
    Surviving on four inches of rain and having next to nothing for soil moisture reserves can’t last more than two growing seasons. So, what can be predicted for the weather in the west this year? “We’re walking on thin ice as they say,” says Drew Lerner of World Weather Inc. “There’s ...
  • Stormy March, cool start expected for Ontario 2021 planting season
    It’s been a relatively mild, dry winter for most of southern and eastern Ontario, which has many asking if the mild weather can really last all winter and into spring. Last year’s quick thaw but persistently cool planting season did no favours for corn and bean yields in 2020. Could 2021 ...
  • Soybean School: Lessons learned from 2020 spring tillage
    When it comes to planting soybeans, is spring tillage necessary? Can no-till soybeans handle the challenge that a cool, wet spring and heavy corn residue can throw at them? With 2020 in the books, it’s time to dig into some harvest data and find some answers to these questions. On this ...
  • “It’s the drinking water for 2 million people across Canada” — Alberta ranchers take Kenney government to court
    There’s trouble brewing in the mountains and the foothills, as a recent policy change by Alberta’s government puts significant grazing land and water sources at risk, according to ranchers. In June, the Alberta government quietly rescinded a coal mining policy, shocking ranchers in southwestern Alberta. Laura Laing and John Smith, who ...
  • Timely moisture hits the Prairies
    I’ve lived on the Prairies all my life — so it’s not new to me to experience a good winter storm. However, the blizzard that hit us this past weekend made it feel like the type of storm you typically see around here on New Years Day. Parts of central ...
