Low Levels of Blackleg Can Rob 20% of Your Canola Yield

Posted by Shaan Tsai on Oct 25, '18

All canola growers are aware of blackleg but its impact can sometimes be under-estimated. Although genetic resistance and general understanding of the disease has improved in recent years, there were still some significant gaps that made it difficult to manage the disease with any precision. ‘Grow an ‘R’ rated variety and you should be fine’ used to be the best standard recommendation when it came to variety selection. Fortunately, now there are more tools that are available to growers that are better at keeping the disease in check, to realize even bigger gains.

CS2000 Compared to L241C

Posted by CANTERRA SEEDS on Oct 9, '18

Recently, InVigor canola sent a marketing piece to farmers in Western Canada. It looked like this:

Inside there are summaries of their Demonstration Strip Trial (DST) trials from 2017, including comparisons of CS2000, the clubroot resistant hybrid from CANTERRA SEEDS.

It's not surprising that BASF sees CS2000 as the hybrid to beat. It's been a top product in the clubroot region of Alberta since its launch. The combination of yield, maturity and unique disease resistance simply cannot be beat. 

But when we take a closer look at the yield data they included, we are concerned about the way CS2000 is being represented.

The Impact of Boron on Corn

Posted by PRIDE Seeds on Sep 26, '18

This post is from our partners at PRIDE Seeds.

In this photo, the cob on the bottom shows the obvious impact of a boron deficiency. 

In late August, PRIDE Seeds agronomist Drew Thompson was called to visit a grower’s corn field where the complaint was ears that were small, misshapen and poorly pollinated. 

The grower was frustrated, but also confused as the same seed had been planted into another field, a few concessions away with a different soil and crop history, but the same fertility and agronomic program.

“The other field looked just great,” said Thompson, with near perfect pollination and big, boast-worthy cobs. “What was going on,” he wondered.
