    Article provided by PRIDE Seeds. Written by Drew Thompson, PRIDE Seeds Market Development Agronomist The vast majority of producers understand the need/importance of sulfur for optimal corn yields, and most are targeting a ratio of 10-12:1 for N:S. This means that for every 10-12 lb/ac of N applied to their corn crop, they will aim to have 1 lb/ac of sulfur - so an N rate of 180 lb/ac would have 15-20 lb/ac of sulfur.

    Tank mixing herbicides for improved weed control and resistance management is an investment in crop yield and can lower future costs of weed control on your farm. In my experience, working with farmers for successful weed control includes a main herbicide with the addition of a herbicide tank-mix partner specific to the weeds in a field. The addition of a tank-mix partner improves weed control by additive benefit or synergistic benefit. An additive benefit is where the tank-mix partner controls weeds that are not controlled (or are only suppressed) by the main herbicide in the tank-mix. A synergistic benefit is where the control of a certain weed by the herbicide tank-mix is better than the control rating of either herbicide on its own.

    As we approach seeding season, it’s time for those growing soybeans to start thinking about keeping an eye out for soybean diseases, like Phytophthora root rot. The dry weather last year in many parts of Western Canada kept soybean diseases at bay, but it doesn’t mean that the threat isn’t there for 2019.

    Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. Nebraskensis (CMN), which is a bit of a mouthful, is more commonly known as Goss’ Wilt. It was first discovered in Manitoba in 2009 near Roland, and in 2013 near Lethbridge and Taber, Alberta. In the next two decades, the bacteria that causes Goss’ Wilt is expected to be in almost every corn field in Western Canada. Unfortunately, the bacteria is hard to get rid of, but the damage it causes is preventable.

    Diversity of crops is critical to be able to farm sustainably here in Western Canada, and to ensure long term profitability. This is easier said than done. As farmers, there are many limiting factors of growing certain crop types in certain regions. For example, in the southern Prairies, many are currently debating what to grow with lack of moisture. In the Peace River region, many are limited because of access to markets. The shorter growing season of Western Canada, especially in the northern Prairies, limits what crop types we can grow. Economics and markets also have a major role in a farmer’s decision on what to grow. Even with all these barriers, the benefits of extending your crop rotation greatly outweighs the hassle. Farmers who diversify their crop types on farm can see significant benefits, of which are outlined below.
