Sulfur Important for Corn Production

Posted by CANTERRA SEEDS on Apr 26, '19

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: Investment or Expense?

Posted by Duane Briand on Apr 23, '19

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.

Phytophthora Root Rot in Soybeans

Posted by CANTERRA SEEDS on Apr 11, '19

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.

Goss' Wilt in Manitoba: Everything You Need to Know

Posted by Jackie Dudgeon on Apr 3, '19

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.
