Options After Wheat Harvest By Neil Elmes, CCA-ON Crop Sales Specialist AGRIS Co-operative - Muirkirk
Wheat fields are maturing quickly and harvest will soon be here. Now is the time to consider how to manage your wheat fields once harvest is complete. This is a great opportunity to soil sample. Fields should be soil sampled in order to assess the soil’s fertility levels and determine the fertility/lime requirements for the next crop.
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.
Wanstead Farmers' Co-operative Company Limited is a progressive multi-service farm supply and grain marketing business in operation for the last 92 years. We have an immediate opening for a self-motivated sales agronomist for our Alvinston branch.
