Early Planting & Unpredictable Weather – How Excelis Maxx Benefits

As we deal with ever-changing climatic conditions in Canada, one thing is clear: farming is... View Article

As we deal with ever-changing climatic conditions in Canada, one thing is clear: farming is a challenge and we need to adapt to agronomy practices that mitigate the risk of nitrogen loss and improve soil health. This year in early April & May, farmers in Central Ontario witnessed frequent rains, snow and even subzero temperatures, leaving the soils wet leading to decreased oxygen levels and nitrogen loss; a process called denitrification.

Our Agronomic Technical Consultant (ATC) suggested Excelis Maxx blended with UAN with multiple replications to one of our growers and the trials demonstrate that there is up to 10% increase in soil nutrient nitrogen levels.

By keeping more nitrogen available for plant uptake, Timac Agro’s Excelis Maxx proves to prevent volatilization and all other forms of nitrogen loss, resulting in improved yields.

The details about this trial are outlined in the report below and if you would like to learn more, please feel free to contact our Ontario Business Unit Manager at corinna.ward@ca.timacagro.com. Our local ATC would be happy to work with you towards attaining sustainable and more profitable agriculture goals.

Effects of Fertiactyl on Frost Damage in Orchards

Frost damage in orchards has been all the talk this year. With many nights dipping below -2°C this spring, growers have started to notice how these frost events have wreaked havok in their fields, observing pistil damage in the flowers. Frost damage looks like brown edging, curled and shrunken leaves, as shown below.

 

Ontario spring can almost always have late, cool evenings well into May. Timac Agro Canada has spent two years looking for a solution to help mitigate the effects of these frost events, and it looks like Fertiactyl is our answer. A customer had used it last season and noticed a big difference in his orchard, so wanted to replicate those results again in 2021. Our Agronomic Technical Consultants (ATC’s) found other growers with similar concerns and put together three trials throughout the province.

The results really speak for themselves. In both trials, multiple blooms were sampled and frost damage was counted, resulting in 14% and 15% reduction in frost damaged buds.

The reports below outline the work done and show more visual differences. Take a look, and if you would like more information feel free to contact our Ontario Business Unit Manager at corinna.ward@ca.timacagro.com. Your email will be passed along to the ATC in your area who would be happy to work with you on improving different parameters in your orchard production.

Grapevines after Frost – what to do?

During dormancy, grapevine can support temperatures as low as -15°C. However, as soon as the vines  bud, they become more vulnerable. If frost occurs, the young shoots dry and die. The final yield is thus highly reduced, but this reduction may not reach 100%. In fact, good weather conditions, with rain and  good temperatures can relaunch the budburst. But the drying of the first bursts will impact this recovery.  As grapevine was already bud bursting, starch and N storage have been consumed by the plant for its  regrowth. Storage of starch and N are not at their maximum anymore for the second bud bursting. This has a direct impact on the energy of the crop and on the yield. Fertilizations and biostimulation must help the plant to sustain the coming flowering period to preserve the forming fruits.

TIMAC AGRO products can help grapevine trees to recover and protect the coming harvest. Click the link below to find out more.

We are very honoured to have received this testimonial from Howard Kuntze.  Howard has been working with our Regional Manager, Leonardo Lopes, throughout the 2020 season to see the effects of Excelis Maxx, Fertileader, Fertiactyl and Duo Maxx on multiple crops.

 

Howard’s multiple trials have shown increases in yield using the Biostimulants and Nitrogen Stabilizer. He did these trials on corn, soybeans, white beans and winter wheat. More information can be obtained by emailing Leo directly at leonardo.lopes@ca.timacagro.com.

 

A big thank you to Howard for his kind words but also for all of the support and help he has shown our team in Perth County.  We all look forward to another successful year working together.

Our Regional Manager in Southwest Ontario, Leonardo Lopes, put together this report on a corn silage trial he did in 2020. The results speak for themselves. He used our nitrogen stabilizer, Excelis Maxx, to improve nutrient availability to the plant as well as stimulating root development. He followed this with 2 applications of our Biostimulants, Fertiactyl and Fertileader, to improve the quality of the final product.

The trial was a success, showing increased roots throughout the growing season, increased yield at harvest, as well as an increase in the overall quality of the silage. For more information on this trial please see the report below.

We are very honoured to have received this testimonial from Ryan and Pete de Gouw. Our Regional Manager, Leonardo Lopes, has worked closely with the de Gouw family in 2020 to test the effects of Excelis Maxx and Biostimulants on corn silage in Parkhill, Ontario.

 

The results were significant and showed increases in both yield but also quality of the silage, increasing the efficiency of milk production/acre.  More information can be obtained by emailing Leo directly at leonardo.lopes@ca.timacagro.com.

 

Thank you to the de Gouw family for the kind words and help this past year. The team looks forward to another great year working along side these progressive growers.
