Friday Crop Report on a Thursday!

Test
SASKFARMER's Avatar Aug 4, 2022 | 06:47 1 Good Morning it's great to be back in Saskatchewan, Was a quiet week for rain for us maybe a quarter inch so now the totals for the crop year are 12 in at station 2, and station 1 is 10 in since May 1.

Ontario is dry very dry and the corn looks funny and up and down in height. The Winter wheat harvest is almost done and looks like it was a good one. Soy is dry and needs rain but it's prime time for soy and rain to make grain so one good rain and its game on.

Realize now Ontario has some great farms and they vote and think for the most part like us. **** Trudeau.

If Trudeau tries the Fertilizer and Manure reduction I think the trucker's convoy will be small compared to the can of whoop Ass that that will open.

So here is the crop report.

HRS is done flowering for the most part and is filling, Early has kernels formed and filling nicely later has started. I am downgrading the crop to a 9/10 right now with further drops if the temps keep getting real cold at night this one is ****ed. How ****ed I would say worse than 2002 and 2004. Flight back to Regina from Ontario and we are way too green for this time of year from Thunderbay to Regina. Real easy to multiply by 7 for yield on my scale. Some Manitoba farms are looking for aphids on wheat but I have seen nothing so far. Fuz is also back and starting to show up on all fields but min if sprayed.

Durum looked real nice a week ago and with moisture and heat and cool and more dew and then fog etc Houston we have a problem. FUZ is here and only min right now is doing some head damage. 8/10 is the new rating due to the lateness of the crop, we need a lot of heat for the next month.

Barley the late is now fully headed and looks thick real thick. Early is starting to turn and seeds are firm. Big heads on early seeded. Lodging is happening in some places but only a few in the area are the whole fields further south. Sticking with 9/10 with a multiple of 10 for yield. This crop has potential if the stars align and frost stays away. Early for sure but later will do well if we get till Sept 15th or 20th.

Lentils have gone downhill with all the rain. Brown spots and then yellow spots and lentils don't like this much water. areas will have nothing and others will have lots.

Peas are good and believe it or not still flowering yesterday. These were seeded on May 7 th. Tall and thick I can never get yield right with math for peas. 10 pods per plant x 6 seeds per pod is the average. any guess?
Best peas in a lot of years for most, the only exception is the 8-year rule for seeding peas on fields you can see over and over who is pushing that rule. No, it's not a rule but something is in the ground and we proved it back 3 years ago with the help of Syngenta and a lab in Ontario. New Fuz and usual suspects.

Oats are nice and fully headed and thick for the most part. Pig shit oats are awesome, to say the least, but I don't have any this year. The rest of the oats in our area is really good. All sprayed for fungicide and ready to roll in a month if we don't get a frost. 10/10 for the most part.

Canola is coming into its own most fields are starting to shut down and finish flowering the late are just mid-flower and real late just flowered. Thick is the word of the day and bread loaf looks. Varieties are funny you can sure see what's good and what sucks. I have a half that was hailed out real bad early then got hit by heavy rain and well let's just say I don't like what I see. Dirty short and you can't grow grain in mud. If it wasn't so late in the year for flowering I would say we have a bin buster on its way but the realist in me says slow down boys and girls it's a long way from the bin. 8/10 only due to the fact it's late. one frost and it's ****ed. multiply by 7 for yield.


Hay guys got the bales finished round one and picked lots will do a second cut for sure this year. Big yields for sure. Even ditch hay is good.

Pastures are still green and looking good but they are slowing down growth. Water is not an issue.

So overall it's a real good crop coming but again it's late and I don't think we will catch up now that august is here. Lots of sleepless nights as temps start to dip as fall is just around the corner.

Some in Sask are harvesting and that's great to see good luck to all and have a safe and great harvest. Reply With Quote

    SASKFARMER's Avatar Aug 4, 2022 | 12:34 13 Both look like they could be our highest yielders but here is a quick fact if I spray them then when they are ready if we're doing regular BASF liberty I will move to them and go. You don't waste time when they are ready to take.

    Our Dekalb new liberty one sucks but I only did two quarters as a token amount but some days I wonder if it's worth it. Nice Butea Vest.

    Joly is a waste of air and when she is done with politics has nothing more to give in any job other than do you want fries with that.

    30 % increase thanks to the federal gov for grain production. Like WTF has the feds done for western Canadian ag in the last 7 years?

    NOTHING.

    One older large big farmer has packed it in our area, the last crop. It was a good run and I respect how you grew, You took a lot of chances and some paid off really well, the area thanks you. So good luck in retirement and enjoy. Reply With Quote

    I grew all L340, no complaints it looks really good, one field I mudded in and it even looks decent. That being said I don't think I will roll the dice on one variety again that's why I was asking about 505 and 506. Reply With Quote

    Amazing GM is expanding its Driver Assist;

    GM to double the Super Cruise road network
    04 August 2022

    General Motors announced that Super Cruise, the hands-free driver assistance technology, will soon be expanded so that it works on even more roads, giving customers greater accessibility to hands-free driving. By doubling the Super Cruise road network, hundreds of thousands of additional miles of roads in the US and Canada can be explored hands-free.

    Before-super-cruise-expansion

    Before-super-cruise-expansion

    For new vehicles in the GM portfolio built on the VIP electrical architecture, the expansion will be available later this year and will be delivered at no additional charge, over-the-air starting in 2022 on Super Cruise-equipped models.

    Super Cruise currently works on mapped divided highways, known as interstates. This expansion will enable Super Cruise to work on many additional state and federal routes, a combination of undivided and divided highway roads. A few notable routes with large sections coming online with this expansion include:

    The Mother Road – US. Route 66
    Pacific Coast Highway – CA Route 1
    Overseas Highway – US Route 1
    Trans-Canada Highway
    When Super Cruise is engaged, the vehicle’s precision LiDAR map data, real-time cameras, radars and GPS keep the vehicle traveling along the lane path for a hands-free driving experience. These systems work together through sensor fusion to create a sensory field around the vehicle that assists in keeping it centered in the lane while elevating the driver’s comfort and convenience.

    Super Cruise accelerates or brakes the vehicle to maintain a selected following gap from a vehicle ahead, steers to maintain lane position, and on select models when offered, can perform both driver and system-initiated lane changes to pass slower traffic and to move from a lane that may be ending, while monitoring the driver’s head position and/or eyes in relation to the road to help ensure driver attention."

    I grew 506 last year. It was my best yielder. No doubt Invigor pod shatter varieties like 340 and 345 have better pod integrity. I swathed all my canola last year except for one field of 255. I had neighbours who straight cut 506 and seemed happy. 506 is easier to thresh than 345, about the same as 340 but better yielder than 340. This year I have 345, 506, 509 and Canterra CS 4000. 506 looks good but so does the 345. Reply With Quote

    If I trade Yukons it might have this fall. Interesting.

    We had pioneer last year good yield and easy to harvest with no problem. We did go when ready.

    My L340 and l345 looks good. My deakLb not as good but ok. Reply With Quote

    Aug 5, 2022 | 14:45 27 I have never had good luck with DeKalb, will look at 505 or 506 for some acres next year. Reply With Quote

    I have the radar on the front of my Touareg (Active Cruise Control) ACC in freeway driving it sees the deer 🦌 more often than not before I do, on long trips it is really hard to beat. The person driving is always responsible… and will be charged if they are at fault in an accident.

    My experience is the ACC is a wonderful accident prevention safety addition to vehicles, not for sleeping behind the wheel, as GM clearly specified.
