Canola Council of Canada's "4R Advantage" program help growers recover costs

As harvest wraps up farmers are turning their attention to other tasks, like soil testing. 

Testing in the fall can give farmers more time in the Spring when they are trying to get the crop in.

It also helps with purchasing plans, like buying fertilizer now, before the price increases in the Spring.

Canola Council of Canada Agronomy Specialist Warren Ward says soil testing is a way for growers to determine just what nutrients are in the soil.

"It's always good to know how much is left in there. So, that when you are planning for next year you can know that maybe you don't need to apply the full rate, that you would have without that carryover. In other areas where yield was more normal, or they hit their yield target. Chances are there's going to be less nutrient reserves left in that soil."
