Crop Production News - 2017 - Issue #1

In this issue:

  • Watch for #skcroplab Updates this Season from the Crop Protection Lab
    • As the Crop Protection Lab gears up for another season of diagnostics, we look back on the trends from 2016 – a busy year for root rot diagnostics, Fusarium ID, herbicide resistance testing and much more.
  • Early Season Insects – Cutworms, Wireworms and Others
    • It’s important to be able to distinguish insect damage from other causes of early-season crop damage.
  • Fall Rye’s Potential for Profit
    • When selecting a crop for larger gross returns in the past, fall rye may not have been your first choice. Now, however, new hybrid fall rye varieties offer many benefits over open pollinated varieties, including higher yields.
  • Keep the phosphate rate up
    • Even late May- and early June-seeded crops need phosphate for a rapid, strong, uniform start. This will also help to ensure rapid development and early maturity.
  • Soybean Growth and Development
    • Are you new to growing soybeans? Understanding the growth and development and being able to accurately stage the crop will help you optimize weed management decisions. 
  • Stripe Rust
    • Don’t forget to look for stripe rust on your winter wheat and susceptible spring wheat varieties! Stripe rust has been reported in southern Alberta and throughout the United States this spring.
  • Sulphur fertilizer: Who needs what?
    • Sulphur is a macro nutrient. With all the new fertilizers being marketed, do you know if the fertilizer you are applying is in the plant available form?
  • Timing of Weed Control in Corn and Soybeans Influences Yield
    • Are you growing corn or soybeans? Improperly timed herbicide applications can result in significant yield loss.
