Ontario Wheat Yields and Reports. Post your yields and thoughts, pictures and videos on the harvest here.

I was at a field day yesterday with BASF and the wheat is almost ready to go north of London.

We will post a few videos once we have had time to edit them a little.

A couple days into wheat harvest here between Brantford and Hamilton. Yields and moistures quite variable.  We have had no measureable precip in a month so actually expected poorer yields. Some of the high management fields are seeing best ever yields where the minimal input ones are 20-30 bushels less.  The combination of higher n plus fungicides seems to have really added yield, whether that was the extra N because of the early heavy rains and n loss or the fungicides we don't know.

Quality is very good test weights up in the 65-66 pounds per bushel range on the best stuff, at this point there is no fusarium in any of the samples we've seen. A lot of the straw is still a bit green so the baling is having to trail a bit behind the combines.

 

Corn and beans looking pretty tough.

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Here is a video we took yesterday out in St. Thomas harvesting solf red winter wheat.

Farmers Pessimistic about Government Providing Help to Bolster Ag

Canada agriculture sector faces policy, weather, and trade challenges but remains optimistic about future growth in Asian markets.

Ag in Motion 10th edition to draw 30,000 visitors

More than 30,000 people and at least 570 exhibitors are expected at Ag in Motion this year. This year is also the 10th edition of the annual outdoor farm show, located on the Discovery Farm site near Langham. It gets underway Tuesday and runs until Thursday. Show Director Rob O’Connor says to mark the anniversary, they’re going to “celebrate a little bit of our past history in the equipment side of this industry” with an antique tractor pull competition each day from 3 to 5 p.m. across from the Peavy Mart Rural Pavilion. It will feature tractors manufactured before 1965, ranging in horsepower from 23 to 100, pulling a weighted sled. Over 10 years, the show has grown to the point where its reach has extended far beyond the Prairies and gained international attention. O’Connor says it has also had a positive impact on the local economy. “Just hotels itself, we’ll sell out Saskatoon; we’ll sell out the small towns around Langham as well, but we’re also selling out hotel rooms now in N

Wanting to pursue a career in agriculture? AMC mobile skills lab allows you to try it out

The Agricultural Manufacturers of Canada (AMC) officially unveiled their mobile skills lab Tuesday at Ag in Motion. The mobile skills lab, which is designed to encourage people to consider a career in agriculture. Donna Boyd, the president of AMC, says it all began three years ago when they noticed the ag manufacturing industry was having challenges attracting new talent despite a boom period for the sector. AMC responded by launching a website, CareersinAg.ca, but wanted to take the next step, hence the creation of the skills lab. It has six virtual reality stations, simulating welding, being on a combine, among other things for people to test and see for themselves whether a career in agriculture is the right fit for them. Since its a mobile unit, which already has a dedicated staff, Boyd says the plan is to have it at farm shows, like Ag in Motion, and around the province. “What better place to be than at the 10th year of Ag in Motion to be able to be here and to launch this inc

Chefs mourn for B.C.’s peaches but adapt to stone fruit wipeout

Chef Gus Stieffenhofer-Brandson says that when it comes to a fat B.C. peach, there are “endless possibilities” for a fruit that signifies summer. Maybe a salad? “They play so nicely together with nice blackcurrant leaf oil and maybe some rose vinegar and crunchy salt and some fresh shiso (Japanese mint) and basil,” said Stieffenhofer-Brandson, who has earned a Michelin star for Published on Main in Vancouver, regularly listed among Canada’s best restaurants. Perhaps peaches on top of crispy focaccia paired with whipped ricotta, or roast peaches with seared foie gras? And peach desserts never disappoint, said Stieffenhofer-Brandson, as he described blending plump poached peaches with almond cream and rose granita, in a “really lovely combination.” But not this year. Stieffenhofer-Brandson and other top chefs in B.C. who pride themselves on seasonal and local fare are working without some of their favourite summer ingredients after the province’s stone fruit harvest was almost wiped

Saskatchewan puts moratorium on wild boar farms, toughens regulations

The Saskatchewan government has put a moratorium on new wild boar farms, after decades of expanding feral swine populations. The province also says existing farms will require licensing and regular inspection. Toby Tschetter, the chair of Sask Pork, says the regulations will help the industry respond to animal escapes and potential disease outbreaks. Research from the University of Saskatchewan says wild pigs — a mix of wild boar and domestic swine — became a problem in the 1990s, when many escaped livestock farms and adapted to the Prairies. The research says the animals have grown their territory at a rate of nine per cent per year in Canada, threatening native species, such as nesting birds, deer, agricultural crops and farm livestock. It says the pigs have also adapted to frigid temperatures and can breed in any season.
