With all the rain it seems like lots of fields have weed escapes.

We need more heat and no early frost!!!!!!!!!

Aphid #'s are on the rise in soys, but most fields are at R5 or R6 which means it's too late to spray. Never seen corn this tall - the old saying is the later you plant, the taller the corn, and in some fields that appears to be true. Primary cob is set 5.5 feet off the ground!! I think there is a decent crop of soys and corn out there, but we are vulnerable to running out of heat units before physiological maturity. Propane/natural gas sellers will do alright this fall - the corn dryers will be running hard.

I'm hearing that edible bean crops are full of mold/anthracnose. Can anyone verify that?

We had our soybeans sprayed for Aphids last month the week of the tornado through Durham. We only had 3/4 inch yet 4 km west one farmer who did not spray had 2 to 3 inches of rain - blasted those bugs! I still had more Aphids than he did a few days later.
First time spraying for aphids. Never seen them so thick - should have taken some photos!
Location - north west Huron County.

A fair bit of white mold on our white and black beans. I could see there beeing as much as 40 % crop loss in a few fields but thats not saying alot since the crop looked like it could have doubled last year's earlier on.

Bibeau announces second cohort of Canadian Agricultural Youth Council

On Thursday, Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, unveiled the names of the members who will form the second cohort of the Canadian Agricultural Youth Council (CAYC). The inaugural meeting of this new group of 25 young people will be held later this summer. The members of this cohort will serve 18-month terms. Representatives from Manitoba include Chantele Gouliquer and Boma N-Chris. "I was impressed by the energy and enthusiasm of the first cohort of the Canadian Agricultural Youth Council and look forward to working with this new group. Young people's perspectives on issues such as sustainable agriculture, innovation, intergenerational transfers, mental health and work-life balance allow us to shape the sector's future in their image," said Bibeau.

Ceres Global Ag Market Outlook

The Ceres Global Seeds Insight Tour included a market outlook this week. Minneapolis-based analyst Ryan Longhenry, with Ceres Global Ag, gave his outlook on the following crops:

August WASDE shows little change on U.S. acreage

The USDA released its August World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report Friday morning. Jon Driedger is vice-president with LeftField Commodity Research. "Very few changes on the acreage side. It looks like farmers largely got the crop in even though there was the late start. From an overall yield perspective, a little bit lower on the corn. A little bit lower than what the market was expecting. A little friendly on the corn but a little negative on the beans. They actually bumped the yield up and that came in above expectations and so from a production perspective, maybe a little bit bearish on the soybean side."

France feeling the impacts of Canada's 2021 drought through mustard shortage

The people of France are feeling the brunt of 2021's drought as mustard supplies seem to be running low in supermarkets across the nation. France is the top consumer of mustard in the world and has been a staple of french households since the middle ages. Varieties like Dijon and Reims are processed by international companies but have their seeds mostly grown in Canada, with Saskatchewan and Alberta contributing to the vast majority of that crop.

Agri-Environmental specialists look to help producers make beneficial changes to farmland

BMPs, or Beneficial Management Practices, are a variety of programs that the provincial government is encouraging to help producers. Those can include infrastructure, land management, and other processes that help producers get the most out of their land. To help with that, Agri-Environmental Specialists are available to advise farmers as to the best practices.
