Seed Hawk: Superior Performance in Dry Conditions

 

Over the course of the last number of months we have discussed how using Seed Hawk technology during seeding can assist other areas of a farming operation. The common theme among these topics is that the results would be most recognizable during harvest time, in terms of crop yield and quality.

This year, a large area over the Canadian Prairies and the United States has been hit by severe drought. The Regina area in Saskatchewan had a total of 3 mm of rain for the entire month of July, which was a record for low rainfall. Some of these impacted regions with heavier soil had to rely on built-up moisture reserves to get by, while other sandier areas weren’t quite so lucky.

The lack of moisture has had a direct impact on the ability of plants to utilize nutrients in the soil; this is especially true in several fields comparing side-band technology to inter-row… Read More »

Conserving Moisture at Seeding Time

One defining characteristic of the Great Plains is the variability of weather conditions.  While some areas are still recovering from excessive moisture dating back to last fall, a large part of the region has been dealing with substantial drought over the course of this spring and summer.  Even… Read More »
