DynAgra’s Get More Bushels Super Crop Plot was seeded on May 12th and 13th. A few short showers put a damper on us on Tuesday, but we were back at it on Wednesday morning. The moisture levels were great, perfect seeding conditions!
The plot was seeded with a 54 foot Bourgault air drill with eight inch spacings and mid-row disc banders, at a constant speed of 4.5 miles per hour. We seeded the all of the 13 canola varieties at five pounds to the acre, along with 280 pounds of Urea and 88 pounds of 0-20-5-10 (seed blend). Each test strip contains 5.3 acres. 18 strips in total were seeded in this 2009 plot.
The wheat stubble was heavy harrowed last fall, and had a pre burn of glyphosate in the past week.
DynAgra’s Agronomy team assisted Wheatland Colony in seeding the plot. From calibrating, soil temperature testing, mapping, depth testing and filling the carts.
We will be monitoring closely for germination, so keep checking www.getmorebushels.com for more updates.
