Canadian quantum-sensing startup receives Deere nod

A Canadian firm that uses quantum sensing to improve navigation for autonomous vehicles is among six start-up companies from around the world that will be collaborating with John Deere. “This is a perfect opportunity to find a technology that’s really interesting that may have a large application to solving customer problems that are out there,” said Cody Sorge, business development manager for the John Deere Intelligent Solutions Group in Urbandale, Iowa. SB Quantum of Sherbrooke, Que., was chosen to be part of John Deere’s annual Startup Collaborator program for 2024. It has developed technology based on a novel quantum magnetometer that can more accurately measure fluctuations in the Earth’s magnetic field. Potential uses range from underground mapping, such as improved mining surveys to better determine the nature and size of ore deposits, to navigating in blind spots where GPS systems typically don’t work. These include locations that are underground, underwater or are subject

Big news from John Deere

With an eye catching announcement on February 28, John Deere takes the lead in the tractor horsepower race. It is introducing the most powerful four-wheel drive production ag tractor ever built, surpassing Case IH’s 715 horsepower Steiger, which only debuted this past fall and briefly held that record. With three new 9RX models, the 9RX 710, 9RX 770 and 9RX 830 that produce rated horsepower comparable to their model numbers, Deere’s expanded 9RX Series stuffs an incredible number of ponies under the hoods of these tractors. They get that muscle from a new 18-litre diesel that relies on EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) as the exhaust after treatment, without SCR and eliminating the need for DEF. With that system, Deere says the JD18 engine still meets Final Tier 4 and Sage V emissions standards. “It’s a Deere engine, internally developed over the past couple of years,” said Aaron Wetzel, vice president of production systems for production and precision ag at John Deere. “And this is ou

Agriculture Roundup for Thursday February 29, 2024

Canadian pulses are some of the most sustainable crops in the world, and a national group is looking to back that up with even more data. Pulse Canada is asking chickpea growers to participate in a survey looking at the environmental impact of that crop’s production. The survey results will be used to create a ‘Life Cycle Assessment for Canadian chickpeas’. The goal is to use the data to position Canadian chickpeas as foods with a low environmental footprint. Producers can complete the Chickpea Grower Survey until Mar. 31. This week’s annual meeting of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture (CFA) brought together farm and food leaders from across the country with a focus on the world stage. CFA President Keith Curry said Canadian agriculture is consistently being impacted by events that are outside of our borders and global in nature. The CFA membership passed 53 resolutions on issues including conservation, climate change, labour, rural infrastructure, crop protection, internati

Listen: Canola nutrient requirements

A successful canola crop needs a lot of nitrogen, which is why nitrogen gets most of the attention. That same successful crop also depends on phosphorus, potassium, sulphur and micronutrients. Alice McFarlane with Ag Access talks to Canola Council of Canada agronomy specialist Warren Ward about how farmers will benefit from soil tests, yield history and economics to determine the best fertility program. The University of Saskatchewan recently revised the crop nutrient uptake and removal guidelines for Western Canada. The following table shows the specifications for canola.
