Soil Fertility Dilemma
With fertilizer prices remaining high, farmers around the world are dramatically cutting back on fertilizer use and are looking more seriously at other alternatives to maintain yields. read more ...

 

Bottled water versus tap water
Increasingly the battle lines are being drawn between bottled water and tap water along issues of quality and environmental impact. Local governments are getting in on the act, as demonstrated by the City of Vancouver’s recently imposed ban on bottled water on city property. read more ...

 

To inject or not to inject (manure that is)
In some jurisdictions there is a prevailing belief that liquid (and even solid) manure should be injected or incorporated into the soil at the time of field application. Yet, some findings including University of Saskatchewan research questions the validity of that claim. read more ...

 

Not all manure is created equal

Be it liquid manure from a hog or dairy farm, solid manure from a cattle feedlot or litter from a poultry operation, there can be dramatic differences in the quality of nutrients in the manure, its beneficial characteristics for soil and crops and its impact on neighbours and the environment. read more...

A Sustainable Approach to Crop Production

Discover how farmers in Europe and around the world are producing healthy, high yielding crops while economizing on fertilizer and other farm inputs. Extensive use in other jurisdictions has demonstrated how to increase yield and crop quality while reducing fertilizer use by 20-30%. Learn how easy it is to incorporate this management approach into your farm program. Through a review of case studies, discover how it is possible to unlock more soil nutrients, support improved plant uptake, increase resistance to pests and drought conditions and much more. Note: Suitable for conventional, transitional and organic farmers (OMRI-listed).

Water – Improving the Quality of a Vital Resource

Saskatchewan’s semi-arid climate makes water availability the major limiting factor to agricultural production.  Groundwater wells frequently produce water of a substandard quality.  Similarly, dugouts and ponds are often characterized by poor water quality (including algae) making them unfit for livestock, spraying or domestic use.  Discover how technology from Europe can enable you to address water issues on your farm and in your home.  Water supply issues such as taste, lime and iron in your water can be addressed, sprayer efficiency optimized and domestic & your farm water source made healthier and more acceptable for livestock and humans consumption.  Learn how ponds/dugout water can be naturally stabilized and the quality of groundwater improved.
