Rain o’er me: Prairie provinces see much-needed rain

The Prairies are finally seeing some rain. While it is too late in many cases to help crops and is causing harvest delays, it remains excellent news for soil moisture levels and hay and pasture crops.

Podcast: Minimizing yield loss during harvest

With harvest now in high gear for many crops, and the yield toll exacted this year by the drought, reviewing how to minimize harvest losses can help maximize your return in the bin.

An integrated management approach, including the use of resistant varieties, is necessary. But as fall approaches, it’s important to scout your fields and sample your fields for SCN.

In this episode, Albert Tenuta, field crop pathologist with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, discusses how to properly sample soil for soybean cyst nematode, and shares some helpful management practices too.

Upping wheat’s defences against “the big bad”

Prairie researchers have teamed up to give spring wheat varieties multi-pronged defences against wheat midge attacks – one of the “big bad” insect pests of wheat, according to AAFC entomologist Tyler Wist. At present, wheat midge-tolerant varieties are the main tool for control. But these varieties all rely on a single gene, so there is concern the midge will evolve to defeat this gene. » Learn more
