SASKFARMER's Avatar Jul 17, 2019 | 05:28 1 Day one I missed but will be going today. Site prep for bins took a little more time than I thought.

Will post today what I see.

Others post as well.

Enjoy.

Oh, it rained over 1.3 in regina and 1/2 at the farm.

Sandridge is wet 5 ft down so I guess we're back.

Now bring on the heat. Reply With Quote

  • farmaholic's Avatar Jul 17, 2019 | 18:00 12 What kind of magical potion did Gowan unveil?

    Let me guess....

    Mixed old CHEMISTRY with a "NEW" name!

    Haven't farmers become more sophisticated and won't fall for that anymore?

    No sense jumping to conclusions before I hear the name and read the actives. Reply With Quote

    Bagging is a very viable option for guys who rent land. If the landlord doesn't have bins for his land, buying bins for rented land is a tough sell to me. Reply With Quote

    Get your orders in early as numbers like those will make supply very short. Reply With Quote
    SASKFARMER's Avatar Jul 18, 2019 | 04:54 16 One thing I did notice is guys are looking but very few are actually spending.

    Day two today I'm interested in new pea variety and Canola my old stand buy 252 is still going to top. for a while and AC Brandon will win for some time.

    One of the exhibitors told me that AIM has a plot manager and that each exhibitor can specify the water they want on their plot. The guy I was talking to said they had purchased 3 inches of water.

    AIM has also partnered with whatever SIAST is called now and there will be some permanent teaching presence on that site. Reply With Quote

    Doesn't matter what they are priced at, the most expensive sell out first. They keep raising, farmers keep buying. If you were a seed company, what then would you do? Lower the price? Reply With Quote

    They have EMT at some of the booths, and just about every major equipment company has an Automated External Defibrillator at their booths. Reply With Quote

  • Jul 18, 2019 | 11:02 24 Gowan Edge is going from lime to clay based.

    Ie) if you apply Edge at 20 lbs in the fall with current edge you will be able to lower the rate to 10 lbs acre and get the same coverage(smaller particles) with less bulk density( few plugged hoses as you are moving lighter product and only half as much)

    They reduce or cut freight and manufacturing cost in half and ..... same price😀

    It will also be faster and easier for us on the farm, I like it. Reply With Quote
