Protecting Those Hard Earned Profits! You have powered your way to some profits, how do you protect them? The presentation will focus briefly on steps for protecting what you have, a new plan on how to start turning over the farm to the next generation without risking it all and conclude with some discussion about new traps in joint ownership of farm land (and other property) resulting from two recent court decisions.

Seeding for Profit: Updated Plant Density and Seeding Rate Targets The history of canola seeding rate recommendations will be highlighted. Updated results from analysis of many experiments on hybrid canola plant density and yield will be presented. In combination with economic factors, revised targets for plant stand and seeding rate will be shown.

Getting Agronomic Bang for Your Bucks - Dan will discuss the agronomic practices that are delivering results for growers today as well as what you can do to manage potential threats to help keep your canola production profitable into the future.

Why Your Spray Deposits Are Terrible, and What You Can Do About It A uniform spray deposit is the cornerstone of good pesticide performance.

Big Crops, Big Demand, Poor Quality – Now What? We are coming off a year with big yields on the Prairies and worldwide. For many crops we are also seeing record demand. But quality has also been a challenge. We’ll look at how all of these factors collide, and what that means for the price outlook for the remainder of current crop year, and the setup for 2017/18.
