Crop Solutions that Work #12

Keep your wheat crop in mind,
there’s revenue to protect

By Chris Snip CCA-ON, CCS, 4R NMS

As the corn and soybeans are getting planted, there is still a lot of talk about the wheat crop.  Stripe rust has been top of mind for growers after the situation we had in 2016, but there are other issues in wheat that can come back and haunt us.  While we have observed stripe rust and other diseases in the wheat crop this year, luckily nothing has made a huge impact on large acreages at this point in time.  We are not out of the woods yet.

Dashboard Services

AGGrower Daily Dashboard
Three local Agri-businesses team up to create a uniquely local southern Ontario-based weather network to provide better field specific recommendations
 
AGRIS Co-operative Ltd., Wanstead Farmers Co-operative Co. Ltd. and Haggerty Creek Ltd. have initiated the AGGrower Daily Dashboard project to address the need for better and more accurate weather information that will enable growers to enhance their ability to identify, respond quickly and efficiently to climactic events, and ultimately better adapt to and manage day-to-day risk. 

“This new tool, part of our Advanced Information Systems suite of programs, provides the growing conditions information needed to fine-tune operational and input decision-making ‘by crop, and by individual field’ using the 4R’s throughout the planting, growing and harvesting season”, explains project lead Dale Cowan, senior agronomist for the three participating firms.
