|Bourgault SEEdING is BELIEVING 2018 a Success! - Thursday, July 12, 2018|
Bourgault would like to thank everyone who made the trip out to this year’s field day. Despite the challenges posed by the rain on Wednesday, the ground dried up sufficiently through the night and Thursday was a beautiful day with excellent conditions for seeding. The Agronomy Trials were popular again this year, as well as the factory tours in the morning. Keep the first week of July open next year to check out the event in St. Brieux.

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.

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.
