Why Should You Run A Trial?

The Cavalier Agrow agPROVE trial program is the largest and most consistent trial program in Western Canada. Utilizing field scale, 40 acre trials and calibrated weigh wagons each fall allows for improved reliability of results. With over 830 trials ran since the program’s inception in 2007, we have tested a huge variety of products to... read more

Meeting Your Crops’ Nutritional Requirements through Soil and Tissue Testing

Have you ever had a wheat crop that had yellow, twisted leaves? Or a canola crop that was pale green, thin, and had small leaves? These cases are examples of nutrient deficiency which have the potential to cause significant yield losses. In the examples above, the wheat crop would be suffering from copper deficiency and... read more

Managing for high yield potential with MANIPULATOR

  For years producers in Western Canada have had to walk the line between cereal yields that are increased by added nitrogen only to be lost due to lodged crops. Lodging leads to uneven maturation, reduced photosynthesis, a loss of grain quality and difficulty harvesting. The soil structure and integrity is also compromised as multiple... read more

iFARM – Taking Precision Agronomy to the Next Level

  We are past the point that we wonder if fungicides work or not, we know they do. Customers ask us all the time “So, what is next? What can I do now to increase my yields even more?” We have a solution. We need to be more precise in what we do. This means... read more

ReLeaf Pulse vs. Untreated

ReLeaf Pulse was tank mixed with Odyssey DLX at the 4 node stage.  The picture shows the ReLeaf Pulse plant (Left) has an average of 6 pods per plant whereas the untreated plant (Right) only has an average of 4 pods per plant.  The ReLeaf Pulse plant is also taller than the untreated plant.

Quilt vs. Untreated

This picture shows wheat stubble in the spring.  During the previous cropping year Quilt was applied at flag leaf and an untreated check strip was left.  The Quilt treated stubble (Right) is bright and has minimal disease whereas the untreated stubble (Left) is dark and has substantial disease.

Twinline & Caramba vs. Untreated on Wheat

Twinline was applied at flag leaf and Caramba was applied at heading.  The picture shows the treated plant on the right and the untreated plant on the left.  The untreated plant has substantial leaf rust, whereas the treated plant has minimal disease.  This resulted in a 50 bu/ac increase in yield.

JumpStart vs. Untreated on Wheat

JumpStart was applied before seeding along with the seed treatment.  The picture shows that the JumpStart treated wheat (Left) is a leaf stage ahead of the untreated (Right) and as well has greater root mass.
