The Most Important Decision of The Year. How do you approach it?

The most important decision of the year.



Despite the fact that many corn producers have yet to finish corn harvest, the corn seed sales season for 2010 has officially begun.



If you are like me, there is something a bit disconcerting about sales calls hunting seed orders for next year when I am so far behind on this year’s harvest.

Do you want biotech wheat?

Do you want biotech wheat?

Mid-Season Corn/Soy Review

Mid-Season Review



For corn and soybean growers, the calendar says we are well past the mid-season mark, but in many parts of corn/soy country, the crops didn’t get the memo.



With late planting and cool weather from spring through the end of July, it’s a race to the finish line for many corn and soybean fields. The “F” word – frost – is starting to pop up in farmer conversations and with market analysts trying to get a handle on whether we are headed for bumper crops and… Continue

Improving Hemp Yields To Increase Proftability For Farmers

Today, Protein Industries Canada announced a new project with Verve Seed Solutions, Farmer’s Business Network Canada (FBN) and Fresh Hemp Foods (FHF) with the goal of increasing yield per acre, and bringing high quality and low-cost hemp protein to the market. The partners will work together to create an innovation value chain that will develop hybrid hemp cultivars with the physical and functional traits valued by processors, food ingredient companies and consumers. “It is great to see Protein Industries Canada continue supporting projects that add value to, and create new markets for, Canadian crops, generating local jobs and supporting new economic development in locations across Canada,” said the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry. “By developing a hybrid hemp seed with higher yield, this project is helping strengthen the diversity and sustainability of Canada’s crops while solidifying Canada’s global leadership in plant-based ingr

Canada’s Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Beef Cattle to be updated

The National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) is pleased to announce that Canadian Cattle Association has initiated an update to the Code of Practice for the Care and Handling of Beef Cattle. The update wille guided by NFACC’s Code development process.

This Code update is welcome and brings the industry into better alignment with responsible practices, many of which have been implemented by our producers. We appreciate the process and industry input involved and look forward to promoting the updated Code of P
