A special thank you to Albert and George Devloo for their cooperation.

Field Notes: This trial experienced some hail damage just prior to flowering the hail had damaged stems and leaves that delayed maturity and also left opportunity for a flush of weeds so a third pass of roundup was applied, that turned out to be a great decision as field recovered over time and weed control was excellent. Once again 2018 fell short of rainfall later in the season for soybeans. S006W5 was used as a check that yielded fairly similar across the trial that tells us the varieties were well represented with the exception of a small corner on the north east that may have affected block 4

Field Notes: This trial experienced some hail damage that striped leaves off on many plants early in the season the north end had been damaged more this delayed the maturity but the corn came back very well. The hail damage may have affected the cob height as well  corn header was set as low as possible in order to pick up cobs; as a result the grain moisture was higher than normal.

Plants under stress

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

If you were able to seed that low land its more than likely turning a bit yellow, poor roots and nitrogen not available, what can you do ? If weather was to change top dressing plants can help get your crop back on track. The tough one  is applying herbicides to crops under stress only increases the stress. With weed pressure  high there is no great solution ,staging , wind and  wet fields are common problems.

CLUBROOT

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Clubroot is a soil borne disease affecting crucifer crops such as canola, mustard, cabbage, broccoli, etc. It is caused by Protist Plasmodiophorabrassicae, an obligate parasite which infects the roots of host plants and produces club-shaped galls that restrict the flow of water and nutrients to the plant above the ground, plants may show symptoms of wilting, stunting, yellowing or premature ripening which causes shriveled seeds. Yield losses from Clubroot are significant. It cannot be controlled chemically to date, however Dekalb has introduced 74 54 RR with resistance. Other seed companies are investing into research as well.Spores can live in soil for 10-20 years. The good news is Manitoba soils with a PH > 6.5 are less susceptible to clubroot, but with our canola rotation we are possibly increasing the risk of this or any disease in our area. Imagine not being able to grow canola on your farm!
