Government of Canada to invest in national initiatives for automation and digital technologies in the agriculture and agri-food sector

Soybean Seasonal Summary 2018

The saying in cropping “rain makes grain” was certainly true for soybeans in 2018. Above average rainfall in late July and August resulted in the highest provincial yields on record. What makes this achievement especially impressive is that much of May, June, and even the first half of July were very dry.

It’s comprehensive and written in plain language. The Soil Fertility Handbook is often included as reading in university courses, but it can just as easily be used as a handy, everyday guide.
