Pre-Harvest Burn-down to the Rescue
By Cathleen Boekhoven
Crop Sales Specialist
AGRIS Co-operative - Brigden
 A dry year plus late season rains, have made a mess of our beans fields. The warm August rains helped with late germinating weeds in soybean fields that now need a pre-harvest burn-down. This will provide a more efficient harvest by making combining easier, lower seed losses, less seed staining, mud tag and better quality beans.

By Kent Wolfe CCA-ON, CCS

AGRIS Co-operative - Dutton

With the fall harvest only a week or so away, it may seem a little premature to talk about next spring’s fertilizer plans, but in reality good crop plans need to start now. You probably have heard the acronym of “The 5 P’s for Success,” Proper-Planning –Prevents-Poor-Performance. Let’s focus on “Planning” and how it can be broken down into three basic fundamentals.

Dashboard Services

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.
