Wireworms and recent on-going research in Manitoba for this pest.
Root rot symptoms are often overlooked by farmers seeking to identify the cause of under performance in a crop.
The following risk assessment was developed to help farmers and agronomists identify where seed treatments are most likely to be beneficial by describing the factors that influence soil insect populations and fungal pathogens
ONE OF MPSG’s objectives is to research and extend ways to reduce the costs of pest control. Of course, the cost/ benefit…
The lower the moisture content of the soybean seed, the more likely it is to suffer damage during air seeding.
Soybean seeding rates were explored by the MPSG On-Farm Network in 2018 at 15 on-farm trial locations across Manitoba.
Potassium fertility management for soybeans.
Yield and nutrient requirements for modern faba bean varieties under prairie conditions.
Managing weeds in dry beans can present challenges due to their uncompetitive nature.
What seeding date and depth maximizes soybean yield?
To learn more about the underlying causes of low protein in soybeans and to find a way to increase levels in northern growing regions, we must look at the impact of environment, genetics and management.
An update from the soybean and pulse agronomy lab
Phytoglobins could be used as a tool to predict plant behaviour to excessive moisture, and their manipulation can alter plant performance and increase tolerance during both flooding and drought.
A moisture content of about 13 percent at harvest is optimal for mitigating mechanical damage.
Soybean kernels need to be dried to a safe moisture level (13%) to avoid spoilage and to ensure safe storage.
Developing improved varieties with a particular focus on disease resistance.
The Soybean Cyst Nematode (SCN) is among the top, if not number one, damaging diseases of soybean in North America.
This story begins with a car accident and gets more interesting from there. Arlene Dickinson from Dragon’s Den is involved, and at some point the movie Silence of the Lambs is mentioned in reference to fava beans.
