Top Question of the Week:

This week’s top question is on the topic of Winter Wheat production. Here’s what the farmer asked:

Looking for some great Ontario resources to learn more about Winter wheat crop production. Recommended fertility rates, plant growth regulators, overall nutrient uptake processes and timing, like when are crucial stages for Nitrogen application, fungicides and insecticides. We are looking to plant Wheat in 30″ row spacing to complete our soil improvement system with innovative Fertile-stripping.”
