Our own Craig Dick is headed north to the Agri-Trend 2012: Farm Forum Event in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. It's a conference and trade show and we're thrilled to be there with our distributor, ENR Distribution. Craig will actually be speaking on Wednesday afternoon. He is going to cover the agronomic role soil pH, calcium and sulfur play in soil fertility and high yielding crops. If you're at the event, come learn why you can't afford to ignore these critical yield increasing items. If Craig gets a chance to attend other sessions, he'll be tweeting about them with the hashtag #FFE12. Follow us on Twitter to read the insight he shares.

How will dry soil conditions alter your soil tests?

I read a great piece in agprofessional.com titled “Nutrient management related to dry soil conditions" and wanted to share it. A few key points I'm quoting from the piece: Unfortunately if dry soil conditions continue, soil samples taken this fall (if the ground is soft enough to get a sample) may provide misleading results for K. Soil test K has been shown to vary substantially with dry conditions.  Soil pH measurements are also affected by dry soil conditions. With a dry season and poor plant growth much of the fertilizer added this spring and last fall remains in the 8-inch sampling zone. Higher than normal salt (fertilizer) levels affect the way the pH electrode functions and will produce a pH reading about 0.5-1.0 pH units lower than the actual pH. In addition, soil moisture has been insufficient for normal amounts of limestone reaction in soils limed this spring or last fall. Therefore, soil pH…

The most combines harvesting at once - ever!

 AgWired.com had a fun story yesterday about a record that was broken up in Canada — the most combines harvesting simultaneously ever. They had more than 245 combines on one field! It happened in Saskatchewan and it was an effort for the Harvest For Kids program. Harvest For Kids has worked on this record before; they previously held the record with 208 combines at once.  The project was planned to bring farmers together, raising money for and giving hope to kids. Click on over to the story and check out the photos of the event. It's pretty cool to see that many combines lined up!
