Dow Pre-Seed

Leave Nothing Behind

For the cleanest start possible in cereals, start with a Dow AgroSciences pre-seed herbicide. We offer four options for superior pre-seed weed control that are better than glyphosate alone.

SoilActive™ technology extends broadleaf weed control, so you control the weeds you see and the weeds you don’t. Spray up to two weeks before seeding and rest easy, knowing you’ll seed into clean fields.

Get better control than glyphosate alone on winter annuals, flushing weeds and volunteer canola, including all herbicide-tolerant canola varieties.

Agrium ESN

Nitrogen Myth: ESN is the same as other EEFs

ESN is unique because it is the ONLY controlled-release fertilizer available for broad acre farming. It normally releases over a period of about 50-80 days depending on soil temperature. ESN provides long-lasting protection, better performance, greater benefits and greater value than other enhanced efficiency fertilizer options. » Discover the truth behind the rest of the nitrogen myths.
Agrium ESN

Nitrogen Myth: ESN cannot release in dry soils

ESN will in fact release in very dry soil. Lab studies have shown that soil moisture does not slow the ESN diffusion process until soil moisture dries to about 20-30% of field capacity. Once moisture is reintroduced, the process will begin again, releasing nitrogen back into the soil. » Discover the truth behind the rest of the nitrogen myths.

Creating agronomic sustainability

In Canada, 40 per cent of food losses occur at the retail level before the food ever sees a grocery cart. The Bio-Cycle production model reduces compostable food waste – upwards of 32 tonnes per day – to create a sulphur amended compost blend. With our strict processing requirements, our compost ensures a healthy mix of microbes end up in the soil. Then when mixed with elemental sulphur, this blend puts food back into the food chain. Sustainability – creating a productive and viable agricultural future – is the core of our business. >> Contact us to learn more!

Tile drainage potential in northeastern Saskatchewan

In parts of northeastern Saskatchewan, excess moisture and high water tables have prevented some growers from seeding certain fields in the Melfort area over the past few years. With the high cost of cropland, growers can't afford to not crop all of their acres. Tile drainage could help. » Read more
