Crop Production News - 2017 - Issue #6


In this Issue:

  • Does Subsurface Irrigation Fit in Saskatchewan?
    • Subsurface irrigation is a very efficient, though expensive, way to apply water to a crop. Do the benefits of this system warrant the increase in cost compared to centre pivots?
  • Late-season Insects and Pre-harvest Intervals
    • When considering late-season insect management, it is important to consider if the crop is still vulnerable, if the damage is economical and if there is a control product that has a pre-harvest interval that can be used before the crop is cut. There are also some insects out now that you should make note of for next year.
  • Monitor Bins and Check Grain This fall
    • From bin clean-up before this year’s harvest to checking on bin product from previous harvest, know your insects in stored grain and what you can do about them.
  • Pre-Harvest Reminders for Weed Control or Desiccation
    • There is a difference between pre-harvest weed control and desiccation, and it is important to use the correct product and the correct timing to avoid MRL issues.
  • Time to Plan for Winter Cereals
    • Harvest is underway in most of the southern grainbelt, so there should be standing stubble of canola and flax ready for seeding winter cereals.
