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.

Agronomy update: Volunteer canola competition in soybean is intense

Volunteer GR canola is a challenge for Roundup Ready soybean growers, since a glyphosate application does not control the volunteers. Robert Gulden led a study to determine action and economic thresholds for volunteer canola in soybean.

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...
NIR measurements

Linking soil NIR measurements, fertility and crop yields

Tools for predicting soil productivity and estimating crop yields are improving, but addressing field and soil variability can still be a challenge. Researchers are interested in developing tools that would link soil near infrared (NIR) measurements, fertility and crop yields together with digital agriculture and big data to improve predictability of soil productivity and profitability. » Learn more...
