Fertilizer Placement Comparison - 2016 Trial Update - Monday, March 13, 2017
The Bourgault Agronomy team conducted large scale fertility trails for a second consecutive year near St. Brieux Saskatchewan on canola. The goal of the trials is to identify ways to safely increase phosphorus fertilizer rates in a one pass system. This included strategies producers can implement with their current equipment as well as a triple shoot configuration. As like last year, plant access to phosphorus placed in the mid-row bander showed up as an increase in overall yield. There was also a yield response to high amounts of seed placed phosphorus.  Download the full report for more details.

Fertilizer Placement Comparison (FPC) Trial - 2015 - Monday, February 01, 2016
Phosphorus with Canola
The purpose of testing Phosphorus (P) placements is to provide producers with a safe method to apply removal rates of P in a one-pass seeding operation.
The Agronomy team at Bourgault Industries wanted to explore different placement options in canola, including high rates seed placed and a split application where starter P is placed with the seed and the bulk of the P fertilizer is placed in the band with the rest of the fertilizer.

The Bourgault Agronomy HandbookThe Bourgault Agronomy Handbook - Friday, May 10, 2013
Bourgault equipment is leading the industry, not only for its reputation for durability and functionality, but also because the product is designed around the needs of the crop. The focus on providing tools that provide farmers the best chance for optimal germination and emergence makes Bourgault seeders a logical investment for their operation.

Over the years, Bourgault has compiled a library of valuable information from field observations, first hand plot trials, and third party agronomic studies that has gone into the design of Bourgault seeding systems. For the first time, we are providing a handbook dedicated to the results of our agronomic research.
