ABSTRACT
The author presents an update on his farm of combinable crops in East Central Saskatchewan. According to him, a few days of distractions have put them behind with their herbicide program. He says that they saw an interesting concept at the Western Canadian Farm Progress Show in Regina involving carbon emissions. Also, they have signed a CWB fixed-priced contract for the remaining 300t of old crop and 150t of new crop red spring wheat at £ 117.36/t.
