- About Us
I know I know; another industry rep talking to you about plots, that’s the last thing you need! I will be the first one right there to agree with you; plots are a pain and they probably always will be. I have been doing them myself for the better part of 26 years and I haven’t hit 40 yet!!! However, even though I know they are very time consuming, I also understand the importance of even the smallest plot, no matter how it happened.
Hundreds of Farmers have realized some of the greatest benefits of the Program during the farm oper
My last blog in August was entitled “Just Add Water” and talked about the drought in East/Central Ontario.
Harvest is upon us. Some of our test plots are off already. Be sure to ask your ALPINE representative for all our trial work from this year and past years. We have built our product line on test plots and demonstration plots over 35 years
Check your pulse fields and know the difference. Heard from a customer they were mistaken in their weed problems got me looking at mine, and had the same issue.
Here in Central Ontario we are experiencing one of the worst droughts we have seen in years. We have received less than half our average rainfall. Some areas have received no rain in July and so far no rain in August. On the lighter and shallower soils, there is corn and soybeans that are dying.
As in most sales jobs having customers believe in the product you are selling is the best reward and leads to more satisfied customers. I am happy to share one such story from a customer and a consulting agronomist, Steve Larocque http://beyondagronomy.com/.
It’s that time of year again, crops are being scouted and the many variables that contribute to crop production are creating some nutrient deficiencies.
For the most part planting has concluded in Southwestern Ontario. If everything has gone perfectly for you this spring, great! I congratulate you! However, for most of us, we can look back at this planting season and find at least one example for where things didn’t go quite as they should have. Its human nature for us to want to forget about these blunders and move on, but sometimes valuable knowledge can gained by reviewing. And if you are like me, you should be going out and documenting these problems now, and finding corrective actions to avoid them next season. By the time fall, or next year rolls around, you may have long forgotten about the causes of these issues. So get out there and scout your fields.
Sulphur, Sulphur, Sulphur, Sulphur. And one more for good measure; Sulphur! Have you heard the latest craze for Sulphur in row crops? Of course you have! Everywhere you turn somebody is talking about Sulphur. Why even Mr. Cereals himself @wheatpete is toting the value of adding Sulphur to your fertilizer program. Take a second right now and ask yourself why all of a sudden Sulphur is the hot topic everyone is chiming in on?
