As we near the light at the end of the never-ending tunnel with corn harvest, it’s time to start planning for the 2019 growing season. With the deoxynivalenol (DON) issues that many have endured this fall, we need to rethink the fungicide applications in order to preserve the grain quality of next year’s crop.

Winter Meetings Question
Late fall and winter meetings will be coming up. What topics would you like to have covered?
The Cellulosic Sugar Producers Co-operative (CSPC) is an Ontario-based farmer’s co-operative strives to develop new markets for crop residue materials and new business opportunities, by extracting cellulosic sugars from crop residues. With this, farmers can explore new markets without having to compete for land.
I want to thank everyone for their patience s in this year’s harvest. We have been battling hi DON corn and mother nature as we try to get the balance of the crop into the bin and elevator. We will be receiving Hi DON corn at the following locations effective this morning: Thamesford, Delhi and Mitchell.
We will receive at no limit DON. We will still continue to test and ensure your corn gets to the proper bin. We are able to segregate at these locations and will move to other locations as we get additional harvest tucked away.
We have updated our discount tables for all locations.
