Historical average spring wheat and barley yields in Alberta by Murray Hartman

If we are trying to change the opinions & beliefs about Ag & how we grow food, using science-based information, facts & logic will not work. We can help you learn how to include storytelling in consumer engagement efforts! to learn more

Murray Hartman- Lacombe weather station data- 100 years average temp has only increased 1C but low/overnight temps have been increasing slightly. Coldest and warmest July temps were 100 years ago

Anita Brûlé-Babel suggests using the seed guide to find a variety that's right for you. Going from an MS to an MR FHB rating can make a major difference in minimizing FHB damage if the conditions are favourable for development.

Dr. Anita Brûlé-Babel suggests a multi-pronged approach, the main strategies including a well-timed fungicide application and choosing a variety with a good level of FHB resistance.

Wheat holding steady.

While wheat has managed to hold steady as barley demand drops, basis levels could widen on gradeables as movement to export could hit a snag with rail issues. If export prices sag pressure will immediately be placed on the feed side. Main support on the feed side is due to the end user keeping coverage to a minimum, if the market starts to show strength end users will change strategies to get positions covered. Feb 18, 2015

Barley continues to ease.

Space to deliver into end-users has become nonexistent for February and the first 2 weeks of March. Warm weather has caused end users to become over bought for February and March homes will likely be completely covered before the start of the month. This mild winter could also limit the upside to the usual spring rally which while I believe will still come, current positions could lower the demand heading in. Highs will likely be seen last ½ May and first ½ June, of course weather and road bans will dictate the timing. If you need to move before road bans DO NOT wait to price, going forward prices will either continue to soften or worse bids will be withdrawn from the market. Feb 18, 2015

Canola close to its peak?

Canola has continued to strengthen even as the South American soybean harvest has begun. Prices very well could peak at the $465-475/MT on July futures as there is heavy resistance seen at that level. Basis levels had begun to narrow but we could see a wrinkle develop in that area as CP deals with its latest labor dispute. For the past six months I had anticipated delivered bids to be seen around $10.50-11/bu. We have started to hit the lower level of this and if basis levels can get slightly better $10.75/bu should be available. The USD has begun to lose a little of its steam and this could pose a risk to canola pricing which has been propped up greatly by the weak loonie.
