~ This weeks blog is a video testimonial from Derek Erb, as well as another grower in Manitoba. Both describe why Armezon® herbicide was an ideal tank-mix partner for post-emergent weed control in glyphosate-tolerant corn.

For most cases in the Red River Valley, growers should seed 5.6 to 9 kg/ha (5 to 8 lb/ac). If seeding less than the recommended rate [ for example; 3.4 to 4.5 kh/ha (3 to 4 lb/ac)], consider the following conditions;
the intended field is relatively free of weeds or treat with an effective herbicide system with early timing.
the seedbed is moist and warm with little crusting potential
the seedlot is vigorous
seed placement is accurate and shallow with good seed to soil contact.
In contrast, situations were there is poor seedbed conditions, increase the rate about 6.7 kg/ha (6 lb/ac). Below is a useful tool called the CANOLA SEEDING CALCULATOR. It is a free APP on iTunes provided by Pioneer.
