  • Canada Agriculture Day: Water Pollution from Agriculture

    By Cierra Bray

    Published 7 months ago

    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...

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: September 21, 2018· An interesting week of trade as it appears most of the bearishness that came from last week’s USDA updated supply and demand numbers has moved to the sidelines. Potential changes to Chinese trade policy across the board, ideas of soybean arbitrage on a global scale and talk of inflationary pressure were seen as mostly price supportive, or at the very least the desire to move to new lows has dissipated for now. · It is interesting to see a shift in Chinese attitude or at the very least an attempt to change how they are viewed by their trading partners. In the past it was not unusual to see China act as the aggressor in trade spats, working to bully (for lack of a better term) their counterpart into submission... At this point dairy and dispute resolution sticking points remain when it comes to negotiations with Canada with no real progress taking place...

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: September 28, 2018· Quarterly stocks numbers, harvest progress and trade developments dominated much of the market conversation this week. · After what appeared to be a move by China to find the good graces of their global trade partners last week a much different attitude emerged over the weekend. Saturday evening leaders announced they would not come to the US for trade talks until after the midterm elections, claiming the increase in pressure out of Washington was behind the decision. This was seen as an incredible blow to the administration as many outside observers feel some rural voters could have their votes decided by a trade solution or lack thereof... · Rhetoric was spewed between the US and Canada as well...

    · Late Sunday news broke that an agreement had been reached by the US, Mexico and Canada to salvage the once tri-lateral North American Free Trade Agreement. The newly dubbed USMCA (US, Mexico, Canada agreement) kept much of the former agreements language but with a few new clauses attached for better market facilitation. One particular change captured a good share of attention from members of the US dairy industry as it works to unravel the class 7 dairy class introduced by Canada early last year... Prior to the introduction of this new class processors in Canada had to import these products from the US. With the introduction of the class not only did we see a significant reduction in the imports of these products from the US by Canada we also saw a significant increase of exports to traditional US customers as the cost of said products was well below US sale value...

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: October 12, 2018· A USDA supply and demand update, weather, trade talks and outside market volatility were the most talked about developments across the board this week. · Trade was relatively quiet the first part of the week as a failure to break out above short-term resistance levels and concerns over a potentially bearish USDA report pressured corn and beans. Developments in the outside market structure though created great concern throughout all markets resulting in a risk off attitude and increased selling pressure mid-week. · Ideas that a shift in Fed policy towards a more hawkish tone resulting in increased interest rates, though known for some time now, was pointed to as the reasoning behind the selloff... Continued rainfall across the Wheat Belt combined with snowfall and poor conditions reducing production and quality prospects across Western Canada will likely keep prices relatively firm in the weeks and months ahead...

    This Week in AgricultureA Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: September 14, 2018· Updated USDA numbers, continued trade negotiations, African Swine Fever and a hurricane captured most of the market headlines this week. · The USDA updated their crop production and demand estimates mid-day Wednesday giving us further insight into what they expect to take place in the year ahead. Prior to the report many traders were anticipating the USDA to lower corn yields slightly, while increase soybean production expectations. The USDA followed along with pre-report ideas when it came to soybeans but ended up lifting corn yields expectations much higher than anticipated... · News also broke late week that Canada is prepared to compromise when it comes to dairy imports from the US—one of the major sticking points in NAFTA negotiations...

    Should You Rotate Your Cover Crops? 4 Issues to Consider

    By Laura Barrera

    Published 4 months ago

    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...

    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)...

    How to Source Farm Interns

    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...

    This Week In Agriculture:A Mixed Bag of Information from the Week that Was: June 8, 2018· Jitters over trade disputes and ideas of beneficial rainfall and cooler temperatures showing up in weather models after recent heat pressured corn and soybeans. Ideas that production issues in wheat growing regions around the world are less than ideal kept values there exceptionally volatile. When the dust settled we saw wheat unchanged, corn down 14 and July soys 52 lower. · Weather model conflict seemed to be the theme this week as the GFS and Euro seemed to contradict each other at every turn... It appears now that NAFTA talks will carry on well into 2019, with some administration officials floating the idea of transitioning to individual negotiations though the powers that be in Canada and Mexico have refused the idea...
