• Harvest is finally winding down

    Steve Larocque - October 18, 2011

    Harvest is finally winding down in my area with producers around Calgary south just about finished. I did notice several combines last week slowly chugging on lodged barley. They must have saved the best for last.

    There hasn’t been much action on the purchasing front but I will say now is a better time to buy equipment than later given the potential net returns this year. Farm auctions will be interesting to follow this winter and next spring.

    In this issue, we’ll look at the use of growth regulators in high yield barley production. Next, we’ll look at some wide row spacing trials in canola. Last we’ll look at the use of gypsum-compost blends to reclaim sodic soils. We’ll finish with technical and fundamental market news.

    Have a great week.
