A dry year, plus late season rains, have made a mess of our bean fields. The warm August rains helped with late germinating weeds in soybean fields that now need a pre-harvest burndown. This will provide a more efficient harvest by making combining easier, less seed losses and better-quality beans.
A large group of producers attended the Wanstead Farmers Co-operative "MiField Technology Day" at the Alvinston branch September 20. Presentations were made by Dale Cowan, C&M Seeds, NK Seed, PRIDE Seed and Floyd Howard.
Wanstead Farmers Co-operative is looking for a seasonal general labourer to join our team at the Wanstead branch location. As part of the yard team with Wanstead Farmers Co-operative, you will assist in delivering agriculture products and services to farm producers in our region.
