OMAFRA: Prevent damage or repair pugged pasture

Livestock grazing pasture can cause sod damage and soil compaction, which is called pugging. Beyond the damage to soil, pugging can significantly reduce pasture yields in the year following the damage.

Human-grade canary seed now available

With de-hulled canary seed becoming available to food processors and consumers, a new consumer-facing website has been launched to provide nutritional information and promote suppliers.

Practical tech on the farm

With automation, artificial intelligence and inter-equipment connectivity, growers are living in a world of limitless possibilities. However, there is often a discrepancy between what is available and what works for the average grower.

To answer that question, the Rural Agri-Innovation Network (RAIN) and the Lakehead University Agricultural Research Station (LUARS) partnered in two projects. One of the projects compared five perennial legume forages: alfalfa, red clover, sainfoin, birdsfoot trefoil and galega, a fairly new crop for Northern Ontario. » Learn more...
Narrowing the yield gap

Narrowing the yield gap

The building blocks of yield come in many shapes and sizes, and from many sources. A new approach to understanding yield is GxExM – that is, Genetics x Environment x Management. This integrated approach helps researchers, plant breeders and farm managers hone in on how to narrow the yield gap between yield potential and what is actually achieved on-farm. » Learn more...

Inputs: Smart Nutrition

A phosphorus primer

Though it’s often required in smaller amounts than nitrogen and potassium, phosphorus is a key element to crop nutrition and is critical to establishing good yield potential. In this episode, Alan Blaylock, senior agronomist with Nutrien, gives a primer on why phosphate is essential to crops, especially in post-drought years, and shares information on the benefits of using mono-ammonium phosphate in combination with micronized sulfur. » Listen now
