Agriculture is evolving at a rapid pace — and so is Co-op.
To ensure Western Canadian growers have the tools and information they need to succeed, Co-op Grow Team members are demonstrating new agronomic practices and technologies in crop varieties/hybrids, crop protection and crop nutrition products.
The Co-op Grow Team consists of more than 300 specialists who deliver innovative agronomic solutions and services to farmers across Western Canada. We’re hitting the field in a big way to let Prairie growers know what’s new, what’s available and what works.
INNOVATION FIELD TRIAL XTREME
Are you passionate about agronomy? If so, Co-op’s Innovation Field Trial Xtreme is for you. We’ve created a one-stop tour of the latest innovations in Western Canadian crop production at locations near Saskatoon, Sask., and Horsehoe Canyon, Alta.
Our unique, results-driven agronomic program is focused on improving productivity today while promoting a healthy environment for tomorrow. At each of the Innovation Field Trial Xtreme locations the latest enhanced efficiency fertilizers will be on display as well as tools and resources that provide a deeper understanding of phosphorus. We will also explore different options for extending crop rotations through the use of pulses and forages.
To ensure Western Canadian growers have the tools and information they need to succeed, Co-op Grow Team is continuously evaluating the latest innovations. We strive to provide growers with first access to the right solutions for their farm. This summer we look forward to demonstrating these innovations at the Xtreme field trial sites:
- Nuseed Canola (NC355TF): A new-generation canola hybrid from Nuseed, a premiere Australian canola breeding company and subsidiary of Nufarm, will be on display. This is the first in what we anticipate will be a long series of hybrids developed for western Canadian growers.
- Miravis Ace Fungicide: As a member of the new Miravis family of products, Miravis Ace brings a new mode of action to help growers control fusarium head blight in wheat.
Co-op Grow Team will explore, through in-field demonstrations, how an integrated approach to the following agronomic challenges can help growers implement solutions that meet their farm’s unique needs.
- Effective management of herbicide-resistant weeds
- Expanding tight crop rotations by introducing forages or pulse crops
- Canola harvest management
- Strategies for maximizing cereals
Co-op’s Innovation Field Trial Xtreme is made possible through the support of our manufacturer-partners, all of which are committed to helping producers grow today and tomorrow.
