NFU Applauds Ontario Government’s Application of Precautionary Principle to Neonicotinoid Use

The National Farmers Union welcomes the Ontario government's announcement earlier this week that it is going to take concrete actions to protect pollinators, including limiting the use of neonicotinoid seed treatments in corn and soybeans.

Ontario Field Crop Report

The 2014 canola acreage declined by 47% from 2013 to an estimated 22,000 acres. Northern Ontario farmers reduced plantings the most by nearly 70%, to 5600 acres.

Direct Harvest : Do you need a desiccant or a pre-harvest glyphosate?

Green stalks, weeds and uneven ripening can all be a problem at harvest. Late season rains following a extended dry period can often result in canola stalks staying green or result in canola regrowth further delaying harvest.
