Friday Crop Report on a Thursday.

SASKFARMER's Avatar Jul 9, 2020 | 05:38 1 Well what a wet week of storms for most, hail rain, winds. Major system went over Sask, but our area was left alone. Total rain fall 1/3 to 1/4 of a inch.

Total for the year for the farm, 2.74. Just checked we got our usual 1/10 last night.

So I call 2020 the year of the tenth. Because ever time I check the station it’s 1/10.

Ok here we go.

Hrs is in heading or flag and guys are really using quite a bit of Ace. We had a Demo last year were happy with it and will do some of our wheat with it. It this year I am picking only some fields that show good potential. Yes it’s from a Chinese company but I think it works. You can go earlier than your prosaro. Midge to east of us closer to boarder and south about a hour. Wheat looks not bad considering. Early seeded has less potential as first rain came about five days to late.

Barley is thinner this year but still is doing ok and getting ready to head.

Oats is filling in nice.

Flax in area is thinner than normal, no real 10/10 fields any place.

Peas wow most farms have really nice peas and lentils, oh yea we’re dry not flooding like usual so this is what it’s like to not flood. All fields sprayed for disease just to keep them standing nicer for peas and lentils well you sneeze and they get a cold.

Canola the over priced crop to grow needs to have seed prices dropped just a little as some early look ok those seeded around the 16 th to 25 are wow and those in June are wtf. But ground was dryer.
Nicest catch is seeded June 18 on pea stubble that was worked last fall. Flowering on early and middle but late is struggling.

Canary in area quite a bit looks good and is getting sprayed not sure disease or aphids.

Fall seeded rye is thin, not sure these new varieties are as good as old. Our sand ridge when I was a kid grew a better stand. But I can bet your paying way more for seed.

Pasture came back a bit or are just hanging in.

First cut is less than last year and newer fields of hay are doing better.

So again guys are busy starting to spray some fungicides. Not every one is gearing up as very little to no dew in mornings and min rain so canopy not really wet.

Bugs so far are min.

Basically I can’t believe the crop is doing as good as it is on the tenth rain system we’re getting.so here is to another tenth.

Yes the rain every day in harvest is what’s helping the 2020 crop as established crops roots are going down like a hooker on the job.

Have a great week and keep safe and watch the sky it could be a storm or a drop hitting you in the eye. Reply With Quote

Andrew finally took the gloves off yesterday and called CBC a spade. They were worried about him wearing a mask not Trudeau’s We and deficit of 343 billion.

    Andrew got a couple great barbs in at Trudeau yesterday.
    I really liked when asked if Trudeau should have been at the trade meeting with Trump and Mexican president, Andrew said with his track record of when he leaves Canada or meets with Trump we are probably better off that Trudeau stayed home. LOL Reply With Quote

    No matter which way you go on Trudeau you cant win. If you are reasonable with him, he goes all dictator, if you criticize him and go on the attack, the MSM just tries to tell everyone CPC is so mean to pretty Justin.

    Man do we have some idiots in this country. People with the critical thinking skills of a gnat.

    The experts are saying Canada blew its load on this virus, we spent more per capita than any other G7 nation, we have the highest unemployment rate and will for 2 more yrs at least and we put zero money into shoring up the industries that can take us out.

    Trudeau snubbed our 2 biggest trading partners yesterday to boot.

    If you have any loans I would be locking those down.

    Jul 9, 2020 | 07:39 11 This was the scene at the WH yesterday. Canada totally removed from the picture. None of our flags and Trudeau couldnt even be bothered to send a lower level rep like our deputy PM or Ambassador or anyone.

    God helps us with a depression on the way and on the outs with two of our biggest trading partners due to our imbecile PM.

    Jul 9, 2020 | 21:59 28 You don't see canola like that in the Slum of the Ghetto. Especially the variety and herbicide system we're growing.
    Sloooooooooow and darker yellow flowers....not the vigorous plants with the vibrant yellow flowers of the other two systems. But I hope to make it up on price on a respectable yield for what it is. Really hard looking at some.of the pics posted and comparing them to our "overall" crop.....but if I look hard enough I'm sure I could find a plant or area that could compete.....until then I'll accept what's here and keep my expectations low.

    The "can" is a cherry pic. It's a low spot. But looking across the top, it's flat as a pancake even. Similar to holding a big fish as close to a camera with out stretched arms..... if you know what im saying. The field is good, but pictures lie. Every angle is different, the cab of the sprayer, boots on the ground, and the internet. Trust the first 2 angles.

    No dry P in this seedrow, all sideband, there's a difference when you do a test strip

    blackpowder's Avatar Jul 9, 2020 | 22:33 30 Been awhile since I've had canola leaves the size of my hands. XXL. One of my liberty's this year, a Brevant of se number I think. Ya, the latest greatest not always best, but here we have to keep up with clubroot resistance. Reply With Quote
