Fall update and reminders

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

It's been quite a few years since we've seen this, but two fairly significant frosts in September, might make mowing a little easier come October.  It has been an unusual growing season to be sure. 

Even though we are have some cool evenings it is still 5 plus weeks before it's a good time to apply Kerb.  I mention this, because there are a lot of fields that will need Kerb to control the fescue.  Realizing cash flow is really tight, but if you have high yielding fields that have a fescue problem, it is something to consider.

A few other reminders:

Late sign-up for AgriStability (deadline is September 30th). If you haven't already signed up, follow the link and see if it is right for your farm. http://www.agr.gc.ca/eng/?id=1534338325422

Also the deadline for The Wild Blueberry Harvester Efficiency Program is October 31st. Follow the link https://novascotia.ca/programs/wild-blueberry-harvest-efficiency/ to see if this program makes sense for your farm.
