Have you had the tips of your wheat crop browning off or turning crispy for unknown reasons? It could be leaf tip necrosis.
Breeding for Genetic resistance to rust can sometimes be linked to germplasm that can develop leaf tip necrosis or uses it as a way to resist rust.
Below Harpinder Singh Randhawa PhD. explains more about why leaf tip necrosis can happen in wheat.
We missed ProPower hybird fall rye for forage use on our summer flyer. ProPowerhybird fall rye launches this fall and seed will be available once we harvest! It will be about 5-10% above other hybird fall ryes for forage yields.
We have started harvest and have 420 acres of peas harvested. We will also be done our Prima traditional fall rye today. Yields are not great on dryland in our area!
All of our fungicides are done, and irrigated crops are not far away from harvest.
As you plan for harvest please remember to talk to your buyers about what can be used as a pre-harvest product for your markets. For more info: https://keepingitclean.ca/
Some customers are seeing some rust issues on cereals, grasshoppers on some fields and hail on others.
In faba bean's some people have sprayed fungicides and insecticides on the crop but others have not and will likely do so in the next 10 -15 days.
We did have small amounts of hail on some fields but damage looks minimal
Hybrid rye and winter wheat booking and shipping is happening now.
Some pre-booking for next season on some hot varieties like Chrome yellow peas and AB Cattlelac 6 row feed & forage barley that look really exciting!
