Stats Canada on crops

Sep 16, 2019 | 20:10 1 Good job growing lots in an already flooded market. Must be the governments fault - looking for payments to offset our lack of realization of the real problem. Next year, even more fertilizer and fungicide. Maybe a bit more precision data, drones, satellite imagery, remote monitoring, soil moisture probes, Maybe even Climate View can help to squeak out a couple more bushels, not lol. Humic acid anyone? Micros..... A new combine, sure why not.

"Updated model-based production estimates from Statistics Canada released Sept. 12 expect larger yields for most of the major crops grown in the country. While harvest operations are still ongoing, the actual crops may end up larger still."

Yes, larger still.

Production oriented.

If I "choose" to grow less will they voluntarily pay me more?
Or still try and buy it for as little as possible?
Rhetorical question that needs no answer. Reply With Quote

    "PREMIUM"???

    Premium to what?

    Are they selling grain before its bought again?
    And you're expected to fill those orders at whatever they sold it for?
    Did anyone ask what you wanted or need for your grain

    Did manage to bin a bit of malt quality barley before the wheels fell off. It's nothing special but is going to take a very special price to get it off this farm and made into beer.
    Otherwise it is going to the feedlot and get made into you know what (and some beef too) Reply With Quote

    Easy ....
    just a premium over the current price ... which sucks .
    They called is cause they needed canola to fill train . Also canola was the first to be dry here after that three day soaker. Reply With Quote
    Sep 17, 2019 | 07:15 10 It would sure help if farmers could see the sales volumes made before it is after the fact news...


    What would have happened if the wheat sales to China would have been known before they unloaded it at a chinese port????

    Mandatory sales reporting.....they do it in the USA for a reason... Reply With Quote
