    There are numerous factors that affect soybean yields - management factors, weather, variety choice. But an estimate of your yield can be calculated by looking at the number of pods, seed size and number of seeds per pod. Here is a calculation that will allow you to estimate your soybean yield.

    (Calgary Alberta) August 16, 2018 – The Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) and CANTERRA SEEDS LTD. are pleased to launch AAC Crossfield – the first new variety resulting from their historic public, private, producer partnership (4-P). Celebrations will take place at a launch party at CANTERRA SEEDS Demonstration plots in Olds, AB later today.   AAC Crossfield seed is currently under production through CANTERRA SEEDS’ seed grower shareholders, and will be commercially available to farmers this fall in advance of Spring 2019 seeding.    This first-of-its-kind partnership, totalling $3.4 million over five years, is aimed at combining the strengths of producers, along with the public and private sectors, to create improved CPSR wheat varieties for farmers. Breeding for this partnership is being led by Dr. Harpinder Randhawa based out of AAFC Lethbridge.    “AWC and our 4-P partners are proud to launch AAC Crossfield,” said Kevin Bender, AWC Chair. “This is a great example of farmer dollars bringing new varieties to market.”   The launch party will be held at the CANTERRA SEEDS demonstration plots at Olds, AB. Attendees will hear from Dr. Harpinder Randhawa who will provide a technical overview of the variety and Colette Prefontaine with CANTERRA SEEDS LTD who will speak on the agronomic benefits of this variety.   "We are very excited to see the results of this ground-breaking partnership coming to life with the commercial release of AAC Crossfield," said David Hansen, President and CEO of CANTERRA SEEDS.   Under the agreement, AWC will receive a share of royalties on new varieties resulting from the program to be used for future CPSR research and development. CANTERRA SEEDS provides additional technical and field-testing capacity for the CPSR material from AAFC Lethbridge, and increased funding and support for the program as a whole.

    Harvest time is nearly upon us in much of Western Canada. As you start your harvest prep, here are 5 tips from our team to ensure you are prepared. 1. Know Your Crops and Make a Plan Make a rough outline of the crops and varieties you grew this year. Which crops will mature first, and if you grew multiple varieties of the same crop kind, which one(s) will turn faster? Did you have any fields damaged by severe weather, disease or insects? These fields might mature faster or have issues with lodging and might need to be bumped up the list. Alternatively, you may want to leave a damaged crop until later in the season, knowing it’s yield potential is already limited. The ultimate goal is to develop a map for your order of harvest. Of course, you’ll also need to keep checking all fields for surprises in maturity and crop development.
