Harvest 2019: An unconventional way to dry your grain in wet conditions

It’s now a race to get remaining crops off the field and although we can’t control the weather, we can help you maintain the grade...

Kenaston, Sk Has New Grain Cleaning Technology

Spectrum Grain Solutions, located in Bashaw, Alberta, has purchased a BoMill TriQ grain sorter that has been installed in Kenaston, Sk. The Swedish-made BoMill TriQ has the capabilities to sort grain based on the interior make-up of each kernel, rather than the exterior appearance.

Tillage Equipment recruited to deal with moisture issues

Tillage recruited to deal with moisture issues Necessity is the mother of invention, but weather appears to be the mother of necessity, these days. That seems to fit as producers talk about the need for tillage in this October Farmer Panel. Largely in response to high residue levels, he says in some areas they are using a tandem disc and in others a vertical tillage tool. “Tillage seems to be what a lot are looking at these days,” says Boles. “There is a bit of a craze going on to use some tillage. It’s all related to moisture in this...
