Saturday morning, time to reflect on another week of growing in Southern Alberta.
Barley silaging is now general with good yields being reported.
Hail was reported 10 miles North of picture Butte. Severe hail occurred in the Cardston area with extensive damage to property and crops.
The humid weather is taking a toll on crops as leaf diseases multiply. In Canola Sclerotinia is showing up extensively both in crops with repeat applications of fungicide as well as crops that did not get a fungicide.
Pod set on Canola is extremely variable. Annemarie is counting pods, trying to get some correlation to yield, please share your harvest data.
If you wish to seed Alfalfa or Timothy please have it seeded by August 15 in order to get sufficient winter hardiness.
As Corn is tasseling right now and entering maximum water use, pivot ON.
