Thought for the Week

"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen". Winston Churchill

Solid-state digester shows promise
Canadian Cattleman
If not for the small flare stack nearby, one would never suspect that the nondescript metal building at the Western Beef Development Centre housed cutting-edge energy research. This is the site of a one-of-a-kind research prototype designed to extract biogas released during anaerobic decomposition of organic waste in solid form. The solid-state anaerobic digester is one of several projects initiated by PAMI's Applied Bioenergy Centre, headquartered nearby at Humboldt, SK. It is one of two solid-state digesters known to be in operation in North America and one of a handful in use around the world.

Important Notice to Dealers of Non-Pneumatic Planters — Changes to Seed Treatment Insecticide Labels

"Labels" for the seed treatment insecticides have now been changed.

Therefore, the Bayer Fluency Agent must be used, if a seed flow lubricant is used in conjunction with the seed treatment. Note the language from the DRAFT fact sheet that has been circulated:

"When using a seed flow lubricant for planting corn or soybean seed treated with the insecticides clothianidin, thiamethoxam or imidacloprid (e.g. Poncho, Cruiser, etc), only the Fuency Agent by Bayer CropSicience is permitted. Carefully follow the use directions for this seed flow lubricant."

CEEDA understands manufacturers have been communicating with their dealer networks about this, but underscore the importance of not selling talc/graphite seed lubricants. Farmers will only be allowed to use the Bayer FA product next spring. Please see attached PDF for further information.

Claas updates round and big square balers for 2014
Farmers Weekly Interactive
German machinery giant Claas has updated both its round and square balers for the 2014 season. The Quadrant 2200 Advantage now gets the firm's 2.35m XXL pick-up, its full-width pick-up auger and its pivoting guide wheels. This gives a clean pick-up from wider straw and grass swaths, says the company, especially at high working speeds. The RotoFeed rotor from the Quadrant 3200 is now also fitted, plus the heavy-duty PFS continuous-feed system. Also borrowed from the 3200 is the turbo fan knotter cleaning system.

Sprayers have gotten faster, but are they better?
The Western Producer
Farmers should expect more from their sprayers. Tom Wolf of Agrimetrix told farmers attending the FarmTech show in Edmonton that the sprayers on the market today still depend largely on technology from the 1950s. Wolf said the biggest changes were made in the 1990s when air induction and pulse systems that turn individual nozzles on and off were added or refined. Air induction nozzles reduce spray pressure at the tip and create coarse and very coarse spray.
