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.
