The Sure Growth Team has been hard at work, getting Crop Plans ready for this spring! In-between our hour’s planning, we have also continued taking in as many valuable conferences as possible. The Sure Growth team focused mainly on Soil Health and Sustainability conferences this month, as we feel that this is a hot topic that growers are going to be looking for more information on going forward. We want to do our best to provide our growers with as many solutions as possible.

Our team has been busy busy busy, going to different conferences and learning opportunities. We feel it is important for us to keep as up to date as possible as the Agricultural Industry is constantly changing and innovating. The Sure Growth team just had our annual meeting in Saskatoon. The team sat down together to make a plan for 2019 and hopefully for future years to come. We are very excited and will have some new stuff rolling out for 2019! Keep a watch for your emails from us, as we will update you every set of the way!

Below are some short updates from the events from which we have attended!

Winter has come! That white stuff (you know, that makes people forget how to drive) has hit the ground, and looks like it is here to stay until spring! The Sure Growth Team, for the most part, has completed soil sampling and are now looking to continue our professional development, taking in meetings & conferences across Western Canada. Read below to see what the team has been up to and what conferences we have hit this fall/winter so far!
Cheers!

 

November 2018 Newsletter

A recent spurt of good weather has got the wheels turning again, and Farmers in Saskatchewan took advantage! After a short pause, everyone is back at #Harvest18! We are very happy to hear that guys are finishing up or getting close to the finish line for the crop to be off the field and in the bin for 2018. For those with crop still out there, we hope that the rest of your harvest goes well and that the weather holds up for the remainder of your season. Saskatchewan currently sits at 92% of the crop harvested for 2018! How did your season go? How did your yields shape up? Was there anything that worked perfect and (aside from weather) was there anything you wish would have turned out differently? We want to hear about your year! Shoot us an email, text or give us a shout!

 

October 2018 Newsletter

Well, unfortunatley Canada lived up to its comic sterotype of weather. A little bit of snow fell the last week of September, putting harvest on a pause. With wet harvest conditions going forward in parts of Canada, you guys will probably want to get back into the fields as quickly as possible to maintain and harvest as much yield and quality as possible. Luckily the ground is still a bit warm so that the snow melts quickly and hopefully there are some warmer windier days in your forecast to help dry that grain for harvest. We hope that the rest of your harvest goes well and that things have not been negatively impacted for you due to this weather. However, due to the conditions we thought we would share some Grain Storage Issues that result from a wet cool fall that Earth Dirt Soil has povided.

 

September 2018 Newsletter

Harvest is underway, hopefully, all goes well on your farm!

As the crops come off the field the Sure Growth Team is in full swing with soil sampling. Sampling is a great way to save some money come spring when farmers are putting seed in the ground. Once your crop is off give us a shout to send the truck your way. If you are doing any fall work or fertility let us know so that we can prioritize the fields.

Get in touch with a Sure Growth team member for your fall soil sampling needs!

 

August 2018 Newsletter

Moving into bug season there are many insects out there that can be damaging to crop yield:

Lygus Bug: Damage — suck sap from leaves, stems, flowers, and pods. Cause flower blasting and shriveled seeds.
Diamondback Larva: Damage — mature larvae cause leaf, stem and pod stripping.
Cabbage Seedpod Weevil: scouting occurs when the insect is an adult, but the most damaging stage is done by the maggot of the cabbage seedpod weevil. Larvae eat developing seeds, causing yield loss.
Wheat Midge: Occurs at larva stage. Larva feeds on developing wheat kernel, causing it to shrivel, crack and deform.
Cereal Leaf Beetle: Beetles feed between the leaf veins and strip away the green tissue. Severe feeding can look frost damage on the crop.
And many others…

With that in mind keep on the lookout, protect your investment in your crop.
Sure Growth has been doing sweeps and bug counts for economic threshold throughout the season, however, we have not been seeing the pressure. But things can change overnight.
