• Winter wheat is greening up

    Steve Larocque - January 10, 2012

    It’s been a busy week of grain hauling with some fantastic weather for moving grain. Did you know the MD of Foremost has put on road bans? In January! Winter wheat is greening up and we could be at flag leaf by spring if the mild weather continues. Seriously though, winter wheat is in dire need of snow cover before we get a major freeze below -20C or there will be some ugly damage.

    This week we’ll look at a great video on how to measure soil compaction with some simple and effective tools that every farmer has on hand. Next, I’ll run the numbers of nitrogen requirements to build maximum economic yield in wheat. I’ll pass along a few website’s to help buy or sell used precision ag equipment and last, I’ll provide some comments on the use of PGR’s from a seasoned veteran in the UK. We’ll finish with technical grain market news.

    Have a great week.
