Growers are well into the planning process for the 2022 crop and with harvest complete it’s time to evaluate last year’s input purchases to ensure you made the most out of your budget.
Inoculants are often not top of mind during this process, but they are a critical component in pulse and soybean production as a poor nodulation can’t be corrected in-season and can devastate a crop’s yield potential.
Dennis Friesen considers himself one of the lucky ones.
Friesen is a third-generation farmer who operates a family-owned farm in Lowe Farm, Manitoba, a small town of about 400 people located 10 minutes west of Morris. While many of his farmer friends suffered through a devastating growing season due to this summer’s extreme heat and dangerously low precipitation levels, Friesen was able to grow a decent crop of soybeans, canola and wheat.
