2017 Crop Assessment Tour
2017 is shaping up to be one of the most variable years we have seen in a long time.  Inconsistent weather patterns have caused planting delays, crop emergence issues, compaction problems and a host of other pests.  Other areas have the best crop they have ever seen.   Understanding the crop size , helping growers plan for harvest and what they may do different in 2018 are the opportunities for our tour!   
Please mark your calendars for the

Wheat stubble management opportunities
By Graham McLean CCA-ON, CCS, 4R NMS
Crop Sales Specialist
AGRIS Co-operative - Glencoe

 As wheat harvest begins to wrap up, we have an opportunity to manage either the cover crop or weed control in the stubble. Taking good look at the weeds left behind after harvest is the first step in deciding on a weed control strategy.  One of the main objectives is to prevent weeds from setting seeds. The most effective means to control development of resistant weeds, is to reduce the seed weed bank in the soil.  Reducing the number of weeds reduces selection pressure on the remaining chemistry that is still effective.

A collaboration of AGRIS Co-operative, Wanstead Farmers Co-operative and Haggerty Creek Ltd.

AGGrower Daily Dashboard
Three local Agri-businesses team up to create a uniquely local southern Ontario-based weather network to provide better field specific recommendations
AGRIS Co-operative Ltd., Wanstead Farmers Co-operative Co. Ltd. and Haggerty Creek Ltd. have initiated the AGGrower Daily Dashboard project to address the need for better and more accurate weather information that will enable growers to enhance their ability to identify, respond quickly and efficiently to climactic events, and ultimately better adapt to and manage day-to-day risk. 

“This new tool, part of our Advanced Information Systems suite of programs, provides the growing conditions information needed to fine-tune operational and input decision-making ‘by crop, and by individual field’ using the 4R’s throughout the planting, growing and harvesting season”, explains project lead Dale Cowan, senior agronomist for the three participating firms.
