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

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

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.
Light to moderate rain is in store Friday from the central and southeastern Plains, southeastern Midwest, and Delta, along with the Great Lakes. Other primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions will be dry. » More DTN Weather Commentary
