There are five important factors that producers will need to consider on a field by field basis as they plan their spring: weather, equipment, soil test levels, residue and unique field characteristics.
Spring input decision-making can be stressful. Decisions about soybean seeding rate, inoculant and seed treatment can all affect yield, and certainly your bottom line. MPSG production knowledge and On-Farm Network (OFN) research offer information to help guide these decisions.
The recommended practice to combat many agronomic issues is to diversify your crop rotation. But what is considered a “good” rotation and how do pulse and soybean crops fit in?

It has been three years since Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers (MPSG) and the University of Manitoba (U of M) joined together to create the Agronomist-in-Residence program, an applied research position designed to help bridge the gap between classroom and farmers’ fields.
Canadian farmers produce high-yielding, top-quality crops and the effective use of pest control products in an integrated pest management system can contribute to this success. The Minor Use Pesticide Program can add new or improved pest management tools to the toolbox, improving farmers’ ability to address current pest issues.
A big part of MPSG’s mission is to provide production support to farmers. Frequently, this means finding and translating scientifically valid answers to agronomic questions.
