Study: Canadians have a medium interest in farming but far less knowledge

The Canadian Centre for Food Integrity’s annual survey revealed that a vast majority of Canadians knew little to nothing about agriculture and farming practices. However, when asked if they’d like to know more, 60 per cent said yes, but 40 per cent said no.

The ecological diamonds in the rough

A drive through the Saskatchewan Prairies shows exactly what one may envision when it comes to crop production in the province: ocean-like expanses of swaying cereal fields, broken up by yellow canola and blue flax fields, all intertwined with fields of lush green pulse crops. The colourful pattern of fields resembles the patches of a giant quilt – but what exactly is in the stitching that holds it all together? A new study is taking a much-needed look between the fields, by exploring field boundary habitats. » Learn more

Forewarned is forearmed: SCN in Manitoba

Careful surveying has determined that soybean cyst nematode has now arrived in Manitoba and is present at very low levels in some isolated fields. The early detection presents an opportunity to slow the pest’s spread. Ontario's Albert Tenuta and his group are developing improved molecular methods to identify and quantify SCN levels in soil samples. » Learn more

ESN releases nitrogen when the coating breaks down in the soil

ESN’s coating encapsulates a soluble nitrogen fertilizer. The coating forms a protective barrier that acts as a semi-permeable membrane surrounding the fertilizer granule. Molecular-size pores in the polymer coating allow water to enter the granule, dissolving the soluble fertilizer which then diffuses out through the coating into the soil. The rate of the process is controlled by soil temperature. » Continue Reading

ESN Myth: ESN cannot release quickly enough when applied to a growing crop

ESN performs excellently as a top-dress application in many crops, including corn, soybeans, cotton, potatoes, winter wheat, and others, depending on geography, soil and environmental conditions. Because later applications, such as top-dressing corn, are made in warmer temperatures, ESN’s release will accelerate more quickly. » Discover the truth behind the leading controlled-release nitrogen here
