Agronomy Geeks: Steve Larocque, Terry Aberhart, Orland Thompson

In Western Canada in 2016 there were some highs and very low lows of dry weather, too much rain, high crop tonnage and then a crazy harvest full of adversity that is yet to wrap up. At the recent Bayer Agronomy summit, Shaun Haney wrangled up an agronomy geeks panel of some real keeners. Joining... Read more >>

Agronomy Geeks West -- Ep. 21: Defining “Intermediate Resistance” to Clubroot, and Why a Resistant Variety Can’t Replace a Longer Rotation

Crop rotation remains the most powerful tool in the fight against clubroot disease in Western Canadian canola fields, even with new resistant varieties being brought to market. As part of this episode of the Agronomy Geeks West podcast, host Lyndsey Smith caught up with Dr. Stephen Strelkov of the University of Alberta. His work documenting... Read more >>

Agronomy Geeks West -- Ep. 20: Looking Ahead by Taking Stock: Research Capacity in Western Canada

What do you think is the largest opportunity for agronomic research in Western Canada? What are the biggest holdups? What's the capacity now and going forward? These are big questions, and questions that deserve an answer. Until recently, though, many discussions about the future of agronomic research in Western Canada stopped at the question of...

Agronomy Geeks West -- Ep. 19: How Long it Takes To Make Soil (Hint: Too Long)

If you've noticed soil getting a whole lot more attention lately, it's for good reason. Not only are scientists beginning to unlock many of the mysteries of what lies beneath, but agriculture has also started to wake up to the importance and potential of soil management on yield. Farmers have always known that soil is... Read more >>

Agronomy Geeks West -- Ep. 18: Short, Strong Straw You Spray On -- All About PGRs

Plant breeding takes time. Significant amounts of it, in fact. While genetic resistance to things like diseases or pests or even built-in agronomic traits like standability are the ideal, a new wheat variety may take a decade to produce, and even then, still not meet all the needs of every farmer who grows it. In... Read more >>

Agronomy Geeks West -- Ep. 17: Who Wants a 50 lb/acre N Credit?

Here's a fun question: what nitrogen recommendations do you follow? Do you vary it by crop type or by field, ie. do you have a "canola blend"? Do you use tried-and-true removal rates compared against a current soil sample analysis? Or do you work backwards from a target yield? No matter which way you currently... Read more >>

Agronomy Geeks West -- Ep.16: The Ins and Outs of Intercropping

I've seen my share of unintentional intercrop -- lentils and mustard that just HAD to grow together, I guess (I call that one 'lustard') -- but did you know there may be very profitable reasons to intentionally grow two crops on the same land in the same year? While intercropping is not rare on a... Read more >>

Agronomy Geeks West -- Ep. 15: Cutworms and Wireworms and Spraying, Oh My!

The first few weeks' of crop growth are critical for two things -- one, evaluating your seeding or planting pass; and, two, providing timely protection for the crop at its most vulnerable stage. In this special version of the Agronomy Geeks podcast, I'm joined by Brunel Sabourin, agronomic advisor with Cargill based at Morris, Man.... Read more >>

Agronomy Geeks West -- Ep. 14: Spread the (Variety) Love, Not the Clubroot

I promise at some point to jump off this Rotation Bandwagon and start talking about something else agronomy-related, but for now, humour me while I beat this ailing-but-still-alive-but-just-barely horse. Where was I? Oh, yes. Rotation. In my last podcast, featuring Randy Kutcher, we learned many things about plant pathology -- how genetic resistance to a... Read more >>

Agronomy Geeks West -- Ep.13: All You Didn’t Want to Know about Resistance Breakdown

If seeding early is the Robertson screw driver of the disease management tool box, genetic resistance is the giant sledge hammer -- effective, reliable, easy to use. But unlike actual tools that do the same job over and over again, genetic resistance -- that is, resistance to a disease or pest that's built in to... Read more >>
