MPSG Holds Virtual AGM

Manitoba Pulse and Soybean Growers (MPSG) held its AGM online Wednesday as part of CropConnect 2021.
 
Executive Director Daryl Domitruk looked back on the past year.
 
"Despite the challenges, crop-wise 2020 was an improvement over 2019. This helped with field activities such as crop surveillance and on-farm tests. Field research at universities and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada also benefitted from improved crop conditions. However, in some cases, research was curtailed due to pandemic restrictions. Of course, virtually all in person extension was cancelled."
 
Wednesday was also World Pulses Day.
 
CropConnect continues Thursday with AGM's for Manitoba Crop Alliance and Manitoba Canola Growers. Manitoba Oat Growers and Manitoba Seed Growers held their AGM's Wednesday.

Spring weed control in winter wheat with Broadway® Star (pyroxsulam + florasulam)

Video: Spring weed control in winter wheat with Broadway® Star (pyroxsulam + florasulam)

#CortevaTalks brings you a short update with Cereal Herbicides Category Manager, Alister McRobbie, on how to get the most out of Broadway® Star.

Significant populations of grassweeds, including ryegrass and brome, can threaten winter wheat yields. Spring applications of a contact graminicide, such as Broadway Star from Corteva Agriscience, can clear problem weeds, allowing crops to grow away in the spring.

Broadway Star (pyroxsulam + florasulam) controls ryegrass, sterile brome, wild oats and a range of broad-leaved weeds such as cleavers. It can be applied to winter wheat up until GS32, but the earlier the application is made, the smaller the weed, and the greater the benefit to the crop. Weeds should be actively growing. A good rule of thumb is that if your grass needs cutting, conditions are right to apply Broadway Star.
