Feeding Forages
By Graham McLean CCA-ON, CCS
Crop Sales Specialist
AGRIS Co-operative - Glencoe

       
 
Now is a good time to do an inventory of your forage feeding needs for the fall and winter. This is a good time to apply a balanced mix of nutrients to get optimum forage production out of every acre. Of course rain is needed and we have been spotty in receiving timely rains and sufficient amounts.

Now that wheat harvest has come to a close, it’s time to start scouting your soybean fields for potential damage from insect pests. These pests include soybean aphids, two-spotted spider mites, Japanese beetle and Potato leafhopper.

  Soil Compaction is Still the
Number One Yield Killer
 

  By Dale Cowan CCA-ON
 Senior Agronomist/Sales Manager
AGRIS Co-operative and Wanstead Farmers Co-operative

  
This is an update of an article I wrote in 2014 for the GFO magazine.
 
Soil compaction is still the number one factor that impacts negatively on crop production.  It is the unexpected outcome or unwanted outcome of a series of normal field operations. The early start to 2016 was tricky as the surface looked dry but underneath the soil was barely fit in finer textured soils.

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.
