A NEW CROP FOR OUR AREA!!
Finally after many delays our new soybean treating facility was approved and is functioning.
For most, growing beans was a new experience that I think turned out better than expected. The delay in seeding caused some producers to rethink planting beans, however many producers had small acres and planted them in time. The soil temperature was in good shape and emergence was good. Cool weather delayed the vegetative stage of our soybeans causing them to flower quite low to the ground, therefore the pods were low to the ground and this caused harvest losses. When the heat came the beans loved it and podded heavily. Yields varied from 22 bushels to 50 bushels/acre. The early genetics can yield big given the right conditions; growing beans can be profitable in our area as well as help reduce some of our risk involved with our tight canola rotations.
If you are thinking of adding soybeans in your crop rotation, here are a few tips:
1) a soil test may be important; you want to be sure your residual nitrogen is low, <50 lbs. Higher N can result in poor nodulation.
2) applying a seed treatment along with your liquid inoculant. Side x side trials have shown earlier emergence, with better root development and more tolerance to abiotic stress factors including frost, drought, and flooding, resulting in increased yields.
We can help you get the best start protecting your beans from seed and soil borne diseases such as root rot, bunt, smut, and seedling blight, also protects from insects including wire worms, soybean aphids, and bean leaf beetle. Added benefits improve plant vigor, especially in cool wet soil conditions. Dual inoculating virgin soils is a big aid in nitrogen fixation. Long time growers still find added yield benefits to dual treatment. Don’t forget soybeans need phosphate.
Set yourself up for success by selecting the right field, getting it black in fall or early spring to get the soil to warm up, plant shallow, and choose the right genetics for your growing area and seeding equipment.

Working Together with
BAYER CROP SCIENCE – InVigor canola has a strong history of performance and is now adding new products to their lineup; L261, mid to long season, L252 mid season, L140P pod shatter for delayed swathing or straight cutting. InVigor L135C was developed to suit the growing zones where clubroot tends to be a problem. New L160S has built-in sclerotinia tolerance. All new hybrids are rated R to blackleg.
BRETT YOUNG – 6056CR is new Clubroot resistant variety. BY6060 RR Hybrid performed strong. Many producers tried this last year and are rebooking. 5535CL is one of the highest yielding Clearfield canola on the market today.
CANTERRA – 1960RR is a new Clubroot variety. 1990RR was for many their top performing variety. Its big pods resulted in big yields and was noticed by producers. 1970 is still the one to grow on higher fertility or heavily manured fields.
CARGILL – Invigor L156H performed well and contracts came out early. Unfortunately, we had not harvested yet and contracts sold out fast. Victory V2045 had a rough start. In hindsight, 7.2 TKW should have been seeded at 7-8-lbs./ac. Flea-beetles seem to attack thin stands as there are less plants to feed on. In the end it yields close to other hybrids and with the premium offer growers net return should be the same or higher. Unfortunately, these contracts are all filled.
DEKALB – New clubroot variety performs strong. 74-54CR provides an option for those who need protection. 74-44BL with its multiple resistance to blackleg, has proved to be strong, and 73-75, 73-45 were in with the pack. Soybeans 2310- very early, consistent yield, 2410 -mid very high yield.
DOW AGROSCIENCE – Nexera 1012RR contracts are done.
LEGEND SEEDS –New LS002-24 limited supply. LS002-23 was new last year with very early strong stand and yield.
NORTHSTAR GENETICS – New Moossomin soybean earliest soybean with good yield potential. New Reston is an early bean with very good height and yield, both suitable for our area.
SYNGENTA- New RR Hybrid variety. SY4135 RR did extremely well in trials across Manitoba.
We look forward to visiting with you to discuss the new varieties and their performances under different conditions, as well as the best herbicide systems for any weed concerns you may have.
Clubroot in Canola
Clubroot is spread mainly by the movement of infected soil on farm machinery; eg. custom application or demo equipment. Other equipment involved in the spread would be construction, utilities, and petroleum industries; wind and water erosion, recreation vehicles, (hunters), livestock, manure, hay, seed potatoes, common or uncleaned seed with earth tag. The amount of soil required to move this disease is still unknown. Best recommended prevention is the practice of good sanitation. Clean the soil and crop residue off equipment before leaving or entering the field. The level of sanitation should be based on the level of risk. If you know of a confirmed infection, then a pressure washer preferably with hot water and a misting of 2% household bleach solution should be used on the equipment prior to entering the field; and restricted access to that field should be enforced. Rotation will not prevent clubroot from being introduced to your farm, however clubroot resistant varieties and longer rotations once infection is in your field will help reduce the buildup of the pathogens. Also the control of weeds that are susceptible will help.
