Nice setup

I got a question, In manitoba are more and more farmers using straight cutting system or is it not so popular yet?

Looks great! Next time we want video!

Any problems with fusarium out there? Some of the local guys here had some with all the rain we got in Ontario this summer.

Most are done winter wheat down here too. Rye is coming off heavy. Some have started barley. Alot of canola is swathed. That one picture looks like your across from Cathcarts? Maybe not.

Take care,

Nathan

How's the canola down there, Nathan?

We were in Crystal city about two weeks ago. Winter wheat looked real good, so did rye. Canola was quite spotty - I was surprised, and the barley didn't look too hot...

Any oats coming off yet?

Nice yields!

Looks like a bumper crop down south again this year?

Barley in town is coming off at 142/a winter wheat at 97/a.

Peas haven't started yet, and canola is being swathed all over the place.

In my area the Canola got frost in spring and was short but our first field was averaging over 44bu/ac, one field of barley 110bu/acre and winter wheat was 76bu/ac.

Fusarium a bit hit-and-miss this year in Manitoba. Seen some winter wheat go 100+ bpa last week near Niverville. Lots of Canola swathed, but lots of guys doing it straight this year using that new pod seal spray.

Straight cut definitely getting more popular in MB, lots of flex drapers showing up.

Steven, where are you located?

Yes
Except the peas, we will finish them tomorrow and they didn't do much better than 30s. Everything else seems above average for this area.

Thanks a bunch for the comments guys,
We just took the gps off one of our 4wd tractors,just toying with the idea yield mapping and
auto rate seed and fert.

We've been straight cutting for 15 years now and are doing all the crop we can, We are trying on canola
this year using 936d header,mounted a full length auger on one of them to try and help bring material
to the center. Will post pic,s and results as some as i have them

Our winterwheat was clean but we do have fusairium in our wheat dont know how much yet

Yes Nathan that is cathcarts inthe background.We have 900 acres right at his feedlot.Good neighbor to have.

We picked up anpther 3000 acres this spring Samuel,so we are now sitting at 11,000

The belt thing is still the same,so far so good,still having our fingers crossed straw not as tough this year.

My location is at Neepawa Greentech, you?

Good to hear JD! Seems like that's the order of the day around our area here too. The yields are lower of course, but still 4 times last year's I'll take


I don't know about your area, JD but up here Crop Insurance has a funny way of classifying the fields. One 1/4 we have is rated as class "H", and CI says that an average yield in canola would be 19 bu/a... Looks like a lot more than that though this year



wade4545 and Don,

I know what you mean... seems the guys "around town" always seem to yield more.

In the Parkland though, Swan River, Dauphin, Gilbert Plains and Grandview sit on the edges of either the Riding Mountain (Dauphin, Gilbert, and Grandview), or the Duck Mountains (Swan River / Minitonas).

The soils are extremely deep, black, and rich. It's classified as Eldridge Clay (gumbo) And has always out-produced most other land. MB's Soil specialists consider it equal to Red River Clay, and if you see the crops that grow on it, you'll believe it!

Maybe a tad bit exaggerated, but 100bu winter wheat is normal. Barley may have been a bit high, but the heads had 70 seeds each


I'll get pics when I go in for parts.
