• Liberty works best when applied with water volumes of 10 gallons per acre and when temperatures are warm. “When I worked in retail, we eliminated almost all Liberty performance issues by going to 10 gpa (Imperial),” says Ingrid Kristjanson, crop specialist for Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives. Clark Brenzil, weed management specialist with Saskatchewan……

  • Canola volunteers are a weed that should be controlled ahead of your canola crop. CleanStart is the only pre-seed burnoff registered for use ahead of canola that can control Roundup Ready volunteers. There has been lot of interest in using Clean Start as a pre-seed burnoff, most likely due to producers pushing rotations. CleanStart is……

  • Cleavers have emerged and are growing rapidly in scattered fields across the Prairies. Derwyn Hammond, CCC agronomist for Manitoba, says some are three inches tall already. “If growers wait until in crop to control those large cleavers, they’ll have trouble,” he says. Know the weed spectrum for each field before seeding. If cleavers and other……

  • Some growers are looking at tighter rotations for this year, seeding canola on fields that were in canola two years ago or, in some cases, last year. This is not a best practice for well-known reasons of disease build up and lower yields. In Manitoba, for example, canola on canola stubble yields 83% of the……

  • Still Battling Mother Nature Excess moisture continues to impede seeding in parts of the northern Interlake Region of Manitoba where it is estimated that only about 25% of the crop is planted. Some seeding and re-seeding also continues in parts of the northwest, central and eastern regions. In the Red River Valley, it is now……

  • Emergence Challenges Canola seeding is virtually complete in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Where soil moisture is adequate for germination, cool temperatures and late-spring frosts are stalling canola growth and development. Emerged fields range from the cotyledon to 2- or 3-leaf stage. Where conditions are dry (south and west-central SK and southeast-central Alberta), some canola is stranded……
