Last week I went to Stettler, Alberta in Canada to tour some test trials of SuperCal products.
Our newest dealer McRae Holdings
, put out lots of trials on wheat, barley, and canola. While it's still too early for yield results, there were some definate visual advantantages.
The soils near Stettler are 4-8% organic matter and mostly 20% calcium. Application of only 100 lbs of SuperCal SO4 have increased root penetration by 1 inch. In these low calcium heavy tight soils you normaly can only sink a shovel a couple of inches into the soil. So adding 200 lbs on SuperCal SO4 effecitvely doubles the rooting depth! In additions to the big gains they are seeing from SuperCal 98G and SuperCal SO4, Boron
and Copper have show a big response as well.
If your looking to increase yields in western Canada, we highly recommend McRae Holdings.
