Erosion Assessment Goes Geospatial

While managing soil microbes might be the newest frontier to improving soil health, one thing has not changed: you cannot improve soil you no longer have! Minimizing erosion is the first step in a soil health management plan.

Farming in the cloud

A digital cloud, where critical farm management information is stored in cloud-based systems, means all data across all platforms are updated at the same time.

Wheat: Innovation through Collaboration

Innovation is a competitive advantage for Canadian farmers. It is through ongoing innovation that Canadian wheat exports will compete with the likes of the Black Sea. In the period of 2015-2018, Canada has consistently been in the top 10 wheat producing countries in the world and within the top 5 wheat exporting countries in the world.

Huge Backlog Pressures Slaughter Hog Values

The Director of Risk Management with HAMS Marketing Services says a massive year over year increase in the number of hogs available in the U.S. for slaughter continues to pressure North American live hog values. USDA released its quarterly hogs and pigs report last week.

Pre-Harvest Glyphosate

Keep it Clean is reminding Canadian canola, cereal and pulse growers that careful management of preharvest glyphosate applications can help to ensure crops meet the needs of our domestic and export customers.
