RRC Ag Days
Registration is now open for RRC Ag Days in Airdrie, AB – June 6, Rolling Hills – June 13, Fort Macleod – June 20.
On Thursday, June 6, farmers and industry professionals will gather at the Golden Rod Hall, west of Airdrie to hear from a number of speakers including Advancing Ag’s Logan Skori.
Ag Exchange Group's Mike Witkowicz talks about the importance of diversifying your buyers in an effort to help weather a trade dispute, like the one currently happening with China over canola seed exports.
The Federal Government is increasing the loan limits under the Advanced Payments Program from $400,000 to $1-million on all commodities. Advances on canola will also be interest free up to $500,000.
Canadian exporters say China importers are no longer purchasing Canadian canola seed. The Canola Council of Canada is urging the federal government to intensify efforts to resolve the situation.
With the recent increase of cases of Blackleg in Canola, Farming Smarter’s Justine Cornelsen traces the disease to its roots, how to spot it and ways to prevent it.
