Where were are all those “Greenhouse Gasses “ when we need them! Oh, thanks to those carbon taxes… and that Voluntary reduction in fertilizer…

We should be able to increase grain production in western Canada in 2022 however! 8 years ahead of schedule!!!!

The Trudeau Liberals will no doubt take full credit for this 2022 reduced fertilizer consumption and increased efficiency and productivity!!!

Blessings and Salutations job well done western Canadian farms!!!

Aug 6, 2022 | 13:44 14 Plus 2 apparently south of White City. About 1991, son left combine to goto Yorkton for hockey try-outs for three days. It was about 100 degrees here and we had just started combining lentil swaths. Water trucks and fire extinguishers at the ready. Within 2 nights went down to minus 5 for hours. Lentils even in swath froze black. Ice crystals right through. Early frost no fun. We’ve been lucky the last few years. Reply With Quote

  • Aug 8, 2022 | 06:59 20 Just noticed this morning, my 14 day forecast has us at 0'C for the morning of Monday August 22nd.

    That better not happen, as we'll still need 2 weeks in this area for canola and wheats(to be safe) after that date.

    Any comment about this possible event from Drew??? Reply With Quote

    The Weather Channel computer [too] often puts a 0 in on the last day of the forecast period.

    Aug 8, 2022 | 08:08 24 The old saying is “take a few less bushels and get the crop in the bin”.

    It’s a yr of everything.

    I’m not going to worry about it, they can’t predict tomorrow. Reply With Quote

    jazz's Avatar Aug 8, 2022 | 08:28 26 This nutrien forecast often uses this model for its temp forecasts. 2 weeks out looks ok, its the next 6 weeks I am afraid of.

    Wheat is turning. May 11 seed date. Greenfeed seeded may 27. Taking it earlier than usual to give clover a chance to grow before freeze up. In 2004 crop wasn’t this far along and frost which hit the 19 of august knocked the wheat bad. Didn’t do fungicide this year fearing prolonged maturity and a constrained fertilizer budget.
