Recent BY PLUS notes
Spring can be a hectic time where plans change by the minute. Make sure to take care of your inoculants by storing them where they are away from direct sunlight and freezing temperatures, and remember to keep inoculated seed out of direct sunlight by tarping your trucks or parking them out of the sun.
Benefits to Seeding at a Proper Rate
Forage seed varies by size and weight, just like any other seed does as you move between different crop type and species. And like any other crop, there are benefits to making sure that you are planting the right amount of seeds per square foot in the spring. Choosing the right rate can mean less competition from weeds and better yield, or even less disease and better persistence.
Consider Seeding Depth, Soil Moisture and Soil Temperature
Across the Canadian Prairies, soil moisture reserves are much lower than normal, thanks to a drier autumn and less snowfall than usual this past winter.
You may be tempted to seed deeper to find moisture, especially if you’re seeding into ground that’s extremely dry. But as agronomists like Justine Cornelsen will tell you, if you’re betting on this high risk/reward strategy to pay off with a bumper crop this season, the odds are stacked against you.
