Monday morning drivearound

Jul 15, 2019 | 13:03 1 Took thirty mile local inspection tour, canola crops have filled in amazingly, only the very odd one not full yellow as seen from road.
Most cereal fields also looking good and even flax looking not too bad.
Rains have been about right, any more would be starting to fill sloughs and raise water table on lower ground.
After two years of record yields, looking like might be third one coming but too soon to make predictions.
After being in crop insurance and agristability from start, not sorry. Hope local growers do not become overconfident and drop out of risk management programs. Reply With Quote
Jul 15, 2019 | 13:56 2 And what area is that? Reply With Quote
Jul 15, 2019 | 14:49 3 East of Regina, black soil zone.
Even with good yields, other part of a profitable year is good quality and prices. Reply With Quote
Jul 16, 2019 | 07:03 4 From the air, the stand is not so good around here. Many bald patches will not fill in this year. How far east of Regina are you Hopalong? We are still praying for rain but like Furrow is experiencing, the clouds split just before they get here. Maybe today🙏🏼 Reply With Quote

    Late is the word of the day.

    We need a open fall. Reply With Quote
    Jul 17, 2019 | 08:11 10 The one year where I couldnt get it up has turned into a very lush crop here later in the season. Probably 6 inches of rain since June 20. But very late. Lentils look like they dont want to stop growing, flowering now. Canola is filling in big time but 3 different stages. Will need mid sept for that. And have some wheat that has tillers as high as some early stuff headed out.

    Oh and did I mention the weeds? Holy F do people have a flush here. Everything from wild mustard to wild oats. Timing was just off.

    Jul 17, 2019 | 11:23 11 Noticed this morning on a drive into town, large areas of lentils turning yellow. I guess disease from underneath has made it through to the top growth now. Also roots rot in peas.
    Insane rain, showers nearly every evening(not a large amount to measure, but makes the crop soaked overnight, plus the daytime humidity, crazy high. Everything is wet till noon. SE Sask Reply With Quote

    Damned if it rains damned if it doesn't.....when it comes to peas and root rot. Reply With Quote

    That's the reason we stopped growing peas. White mold, root rot. Would look awesome until the first good rain, then start to thin out. Yellow in lentils in low spots but I also see yellowing in spots where water didn't sit, so more likely root disease of some type. Reply With Quote

    I think you need to get out more... work in belle plain and yes gorgeous crops not that far out and it's more like 100's of miles of shit after that. farm by kenaston and it's not looking good... yes there are a few nice crops but many many many more poor ones
