Evaluating Dry Bean Nodulation

DIGGING UP ROOTS… is this part of your routine crop scouting? You could be counting nodules on soybean roots or checking for clubroot in canola, but what about other crops and conditions? Digging up roots and inspecting them can be just as valuable as observing the crop above ground. Plant roots form an extensive network with soil, interacting with microbes, water and nutrients to produce biomass and yield. We should ask ourselves — how are they functioning? Can our management system improve them? In the soybean and pulse agronomy research lab, we are studying nitrogen, preceding crop and residue management in dry beans at Carman and Portage. Digging up roots is standard protocol for collecting data on nodulation and root rot to help explain research results. Here’s how you can make observations about dry beans in your fields. RESEARCH BACKGROUND Nitrogen fertilization at an average rate of 60 lbs N/ac is standard practice for dry beans in Manitoba. Dry beans are managed like a n

Crop Diagnostic School Recap: Root Rots

MPSG agronomists participated in the disease session of Crop Diagnostic School this year, highlighting two nefarious root rots: Phytophthora root and stem rot in soybeans and Aphanomyces root rot in peas. ‘Phytophthora’ is an unwieldy name to grasp. Its name is Greek, with ‘Phyto’ meaning ‘plant’ and ‘phthora’ meaning ‘destruction, decay, ruin or perish’. Put these together and we get the Plant Destroyer, Phytophthora root and stem rot. ‘Aphanomyces’ doesn’t have a similar fun break-down, but we can say we’re not A-fan-o’-mycetes. It’s cheesy, but memorable. Both of these diseases have a few things in common, since they’re both oomycetes, or ‘water moulds’. Water being a key piece here, as both of these diseases require soil moisture for a portion of their life cycle so they can swim to infect plant roots. Since we’ve had drier years, they’ve been less common to observe in the field, but with a return of more moisture this season, we anticipate these being a larger concern. Both of t

Corteva Agriscience Announces Trusource™ Wheat, a High Fiber Durum, and New Ingredients Category to Better Meet Needs of Consumers and Food Industry

Corteva Agriscience today announced its new brand, Trusource™ wheat, a high fiber durum that can help meet consumers’ needs for increased dietary fiber through use in high-volume foods such as pasta. Trusource wheat will be available to food companies to trial in product development and evaluation in late 2024, with North American commercialization plans for farmers to be announced in the coming years. Fiber is the most under-consumed macronutrient and there is a direct correlation between low fiber and chronic inflammation, leading to many human health issues.1 “We have used traditional breeding techniques to enable the taste and texture of Trusource wheat to better match the traditional sensory experience consumers want in pasta and baked goods while increasing their fiber intake with high fiber Trusource wheat,” said Michael Reimer, Innovation Manager – Value-Added Ingredients, Corteva Agriscience. Trusource wheat is an exciting addition to the new Value-Added Ingredients categor

Resilient Agricultural Landscape Program investing in improved agricultural lands

The federal and provincial governments are investing in projects that will help farmers adopt beneficial land-use management practices that will increase environmental resiliency among farms in Newfoundland and Labrador.
