Thought for the Week

"Teamwork divides the task and multiplies the success." Unknown



Attention CEEDA Members!
Ontario’s Anti-Spam Regulation comes into effect July 1, 2014.

In an effort to reduce electronic spam arriving in consumers’ inboxes, Canadian policy makers have established Bill C-28, Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL). While at first glance, this seems like a positive move for consumers, it is important to recognize the impact CASL will have on local Canadian businesses. In addition, these Canadian businesses will face extreme fines, upwards of $1 million, if their electronic marketing initiatives do not comply.

You must have current written permissions from every individual with whom you communicate electronically, on file. Different compliances exist for existing business relationships than for new business relationships moving forward. Please contact the CEEDA office for more detail.

Bill C-28 sets a very strict threshold for what messages can be sent and the penalties for non-compliance are extreme. Corporations could be fined as much as $10 million if they violate the law.

To access the Canada Anti-Spam Checklist please CLICK HERE

To avoiding having your hands tied by CASL and ensure you’re able to compete by utilizing email messaging, we’ve prepared a readiness checklist for you. Please see article and for more information, call Bev at the CEEDA office at 705-726-2100.

Future of soil sensing technology
Precision Farming Dealer
Sensors that measure a variety of essential soil properties on the go are being developed. These sensors can be used either to control variable rate application equipment in real-time or in conjunction with a Global Positioning System (GPS) to generate field maps of particular soil properties. Depending on the spacing between passes, travel speed, and sampling and/or measurement frequency, the number of measurement points per acre varies; however, in most cases, it is much greater than the density of manual grid sampling. The cost of mapping usually is reduced as well.

RRV canola disk for John Deere planters designed for true singulation, longevity
Real Agriculture
Grain and oilseed growers in Western Canada often look down south at the amazing job that U.S. farmers do with planting the corn crop and wonder, “Should we be using a planter for our crops, too?” While it’s absolutely possible to seed a great stand of canola and even soybeans without converting to a planter-based seeding system, those using planters for corn, soybeans or other crops are also having success with using the units for tiny-seeded crops like canola. Still, canola is a very Western Canadian crop, and as such, not all planter models have stock planting discs equipped to handle the hundreds of thousands of seeds required per acre.
