Harvest is wrapping up across the country, with crops in many provinces looking good. Of course, we all want the highest yielding crop possible, but what effects do high yields have on your soil fertility? And how can you work to manage and replace the nutrients lost from a high-yielding crop? In this week’s edition of Growing Possibilities, we will discuss the effects of a high yields on soil nutrients and how you can get them back in your field for next season. It makes sense that a higher...

Any pulse or soybean grower will be familiar with bacterial inoculants: nitrogen (N)-fixing bacteria that make a symbiosis with your plant roots, form nodules and provide N to your crop. But N-fixing bacteria are not the only biological crop input out there, and legume crops are not the only ones who can benefit from these ag-biologicals. On this week’s edition of growing possibilities, we will discuss how biologicals beyond N-fixing bacteria can help all of your crops reach their maximum performance & yield potential. Nitrogen fixing bacteria as legume...

Many farmers are familiar with applying inoculants and biologicals on their spring crops. With the increased interest in fall-seeded crops like winter cereals and winter peas many farmers will be looking to use similar products during fall seeding. You don’t need a keen eye to notice crop acres look very different after autumn harvest than they do in the spring, so it stands to reason that application will look different too. In this week’s edition of Growing Possibilities, we will see how applying biologicals on a fall seeded...

As the seasons start to change and harvest starts wrapping up, there is one thing prairie farmers dread: overnight frost. In this week’s edition of growing possibilities, we are going to look at how early fall frost can affect different crops at the end of the growing season and the soil microbes that help them grow. One of the most frost sensitive crops on the prairies is canola. Canola is most sensitive to frost during immature stages, when moisture content is higher, so frost during these stages will affect...
