  • Canada Agriculture Day: Water Pollution from Agriculture

    By Cierra Bray

    Published Mar 26, 2018 

    February 13, 2018February 13th, 2018 is the 2nd annual Canada’s Agriculture Day – a time to celebrate and draw a closer connection between Canadians, our food and the people who produce it. Our theme this year is Water Pollution from Agriculture, which is a global challenge that has increased in both developed and developing countries, undermining economic growth as well as the physical and environmental health of billions of people. Human settlements, industries and agriculture are the major sources of water pollution. Globally, 80 percent of municipal wastewater is discharged into water bodies untreated, and industry is responsible for dumping millions of tonnes of heavy metals, solvents, toxic sludge and other wastes into water bodies each year. Agriculture, which accounts for 70 percent of water abstractions worldwide, plays a major role in water pollution...

    What Farmers Need to Know About Mycorrhizae

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Nov 2, 2018 

    If someone asked you, “How do plants take up the water and nutrients they need?” you’d probably tell them through the roots. But did you know that for many crops, those roots aren’t working alone?That’s because most plant species associate with mycorrhizal fungi. What is mycorrhizal fungi? University of Alberta biological scientist JC Cahill says that mycorrhizas are actually the interaction between a fungus and a plant. Although there are many different types of mycorrhizae, the only one crop farmers need to be concerned about is arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), as 65% of plant species associate with it... “In Canada, because prices are good for canola right now, a lot of farmers are going back to mono-cropping,” she says...

    Corn Fungicides 101: Tips for Protecting Your Crop and Your Bottom Line from Foliar Disease

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jul 7, 2020 

    Every year foliar diseases take a hit to corn yields across the U. S. and Canada. One way to protect corn bushels from these diseases is with corn fungicides. But in economic times when margins are tight, farmers must consider how foliar fungicide applications will impact their bottom line...

    How Brazilian Big Agriculture is Destroying the Brazilian Amazon

    By Maria Dampman

    Published Apr 4, 2018 

    The rampant deforestation of the Amazon began in the 1970s when the government of Brazil determined they needed to build over 9,000 miles of roads help integrate the rainforest with the populated bordering areas. As the deeper parts of the rainforest became accessible, development of these lands became possible, and once begun, continued at an alarming rate. Farmers, loggers and cattle ranchers cleared forest to create grazing land as well as to grow highly profitable crops like soy. In the beginning, no one was aware of the disastrous environmental consequences of destroying the forest often described as “the lungs of the Earth. ” Once scientists delved into the causes of global climate change, a wide number of other side effects of the clearing of the rainforest quickly became evident...

    How to Source Farm Interns

    By Gregory Heilers

    Published May 12, 2018 

    The Keenans were up to their elbows in infrastructure projects, animal husbandry, and a burgeoning farmstay business, and needed help in a bad way. Balancing a post and beam, lime plaster home construction project against caretaking goats and chickens, while juggling four human kids to boot, left the Keenans with little time for their personal lives. So, the family turned to the outside world for help. As a recent college grad excited about farming, I responded to their advertisement, and soon found my way to the delightful Keenan homestead... ATTRA/NCATATTRA’s directory, in use since 1989, is organized visually with a map of the US and Canada, easy to navigate, and conveys all of the important details an intern should know about your farm prior to applying for an internship...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Jun 15, 2018 

    You probably know that having a crop rotation is a good thing. Growing different crops back to back provides several benefits, such as preventing pests and disease, improving soil health and reducing fertilizer inputs, all of which can boost your crop yields and your bottom line. By adding cover crops to the mix, you’re diversifying your rotation even more. But have you thought about rotating your cover crops? Should you be using the same cover crop species back to back, year after year?Dave Robison, who runs the blog PlantCoverCrops... According to the Canola Council of Canada, clubroot causes premature death in canola and is considered a serious disease due to the spores ability to survive in the soil for up to 20 years...

    ATV Safety Device

    By David Sullivan Ag Safety

    Published Mar 27, 2018 

    Can you lift 660lbs? The average ATV or Quad weighs in excess of 660lbs, and when they flip or roll, the rider can become entrapped underneath. When gravity and momentum are available the ATV will continue to roll causing costly damage to the machine. Roll cages and roll bars, all require a restraint in order to meet standards this makes them ineffective on an ATV because the rider needs freedom of movement to shift their weight in order to ride safely and effectively. These issues have lead to the creation of the CPD or Crush Protection Device, of which the Quadbar designed and manufactured in Australia is the most effective at preventing serious injury or death from a roll over by creating space between the ground and the ATV, or stoping the ATV from completing further rolls... The Quadbar is now available in Canada for $595 MRP...

    Citizens Weekly Newsletter June 22, 2018

    By Angie Setzer

    Published Jun 22, 2018 

    This Week In Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: June 22, 2018· Another volatile week as traders work to decipher what a continued trade war could mean for commodities going forward and the old adage “rain makes grain” is put to the test. When the closing bell rang for the week we saw December corn down nearly 5 cents, December wheat down 12 and November soybeans down 14. · The week started relatively weak as heat that had built throughout the bulk of the Corn Belt over the weekend was expected to give way to cooler temperatures coupled with extreme moisture in areas of the Belt that had seen beneficial rainfall the week before. With corn ratings nationally sitting at 78% good to excellent—a near record high and bean ratings at 73% the common idea was rain would continue to benefit production... · Some worry the Chinese could push their citizens to avoid American products (something happening in Canada right now, incidentally), while others fear the Chinese could make it difficult for American companies to do business there (something many are quick to point out already happens)...

    Are CSAs still okay?

    By John Moody

    Published May 14, 2018 

    Are CSAs still a viable business model for small farms? In the early 2000s, we hit a heyday for local farm and foods. Works by numerous authors created a resurgence in interest among consumers for “food with a face” - locally grown, seasonal, direct from the farm. What had been a mostly niche movement starting the 1980s that had limited appeal into the 90s took off in the 2000s. Farmer’s markets exploded http://cleantechies... It has now grown to over 6,000 farms (estimated) in the United States and many more in Canada and the rest of the globe...

    Canada call for proposals: Clean Energy for Rural and Remote Communities: BioHeat, Demonstration & Deployment Program Streams

    The project must fit into one of the following streams:

    Program streams:
    BioHeat to reduce fossil fuel use through the installation, retrofit or investigation into the feasibility of biomass heating or combined heat and power systems for community and/or industrial applications.

    Innovative demonstrations to reduce diesel use through the validation of novel renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy storage, and smart-grid technologies and applications.

    Deployment of renewable energy technologies for electricity including hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, and bioenergy. Heat may also be produced, but the primary purpose of the project must be electricity production.
    There is a separate call for preliminary proposals for Capacity-Building Activities to support development and delivery of knowledge and skills in an effort to reduce diesel dependency that go beyond a specific project..

    The deadline for submission is May 17, 2018, (23:59 EDT)

    Illustration Photo: A "boiler in a box" burns locally produced wood pellets and was easy to install. By fabricating the boiler unit off site, the installation was quick and easy.

    Canada invests $5.9 million to support a precision agriculture platform for irrigation management

    This investment in Hortau supports a precision agriculture platform—composed of hardware, software and communication systems—that can provide a more complete approach to managing crops and irrigation. This includes monitoring five elements that can influence crop development: water, nutrients, pests, temperature and salinity. With this technology, Hortau is targeting high-value irrigated crops in Canada and the United States, representing a market of about 9.5 million acres. Hortau made the prestigious 2017 Global Cleantech 100 top companies to watch list as an up-and-coming company that is catching the attention of leading investors and corporations in the market.

    Canada launched Forest Bioeconomy Framework to enhance the Sustainability of the Forest Sector

    The Forest Bioeconomy Framework establishes a path that will result in a forest bioeconomy that identifies sustainable bio-based materials from healthy forests available for high added-value manufacturing. The framework highlights innovation, collaboration, and investment and opens the door to further enhancing the sustainability of the forest sector through research, innovation and strong public policy.

    Canada's forest sector provides 230,000 direct and nearly 700,000 indirect jobs across the country and is also a leader in the fight against climate change. The forest sector was the first major Canadian industry to launch a comprehensive plan to reduce carbon through its 30 X 30 Climate Change Challenge which alone can help the federal government achieve 13 per cent of its carbon reduction goal by 2030 as committed at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Paris.

    Canada advanced an Innovative and Competitive Dairy Sector

    The programs will help the sector increase productivity and competitiveness and prepare for the implementation of the Canada – European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), which will establish greater access for European cheeses into Canada.

    The two programs are: the five-year, $250 million Dairy Farm Investment Program and the four-year, $100 million Dairy Processing Investment Fund. For dairy producers, the new program will enable investments such as robotic and other automated systems that improve farm productivity. Similarly, for dairy processors, the new program will support investments in equipment and infrastructure, or provide access to specialized expertise to introduce new products or processes.
