Canola growers take on the railways A second level-ofservice complaint has been filed By Allan Dawson CO-OPERATOR STAFF


second legal complaint has been filed alleging the railways provided inadequate grain-shipping service this crop year. And more might be coming. The Canadian Canola Growers Association (CCGA) filed a level-ofservice complaint with the Canadian Transportation Agency (CTA) May 26, accusing both Canadian Pa c i f i c a n d Canadian National railways of failing to fulfil their common carrier obligations for the movement of western Canadian grains and oilseeds this crop year. “What we’re saying to the CTA is they (railways) didn’t even come close,” CCGA CEO Rick White said in an interview May 26. “They didn’t do it on a weekly basis. They didn’t do it on monthly basis and they are not even going to do it on a yearly basis this year. We’re going to end up with a 23-million-tonne

After a late start to seeding, Manitoba farmers have been dodging showers as they try to get the crop in before crop insurance deadlines.


Corn, soybean, sunflower seeding deadlines loom No extensions are planned, says the Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation By Allan Dawson CO-OPERATOR STAFF

he crop insurance eligibility clock is ticking away as farmers scramble to get their acres sown before the deadlines for full coverage pass. Time has all but run out for grain corn and soybean acres. Depending on what part of Manitoba you’re in, the deadline for planting corn and soybeans and still get full coverage is as early as Friday, May 30. And there won’t be any deadline extensions. “A big review was done in the 1990s and since then the Excess Moisture Insurance program was developed and we provide extended (planting) periods based on agronomics so there is no talk of extending anything at this point in time,” David Koroscil, Manitoba Agricultural Services Corporation (MASC) manager of insurance projects and sales, said in an interview May 23. A cool and wet spring has delayed seeding for the second consecutive year.

Deadlines for planting sunflowers, edible beans, triticale and depending on the location, canola, are not far off either. See page 6 for a full list of deadlines. Farmers in Canola Area 1 must sow the oilseed crop by June 15 to get full coverage and by June 20 for coverage at 80 per cent. The Canola Area 2 deadline is June 10 for full coverage and June 15 for reduced coverage. Farmers in a very small portion of south-central Manitoba have until June 6 to seed both soybeans and corn and be fully covered. June 11 is the extended deadline with reduced coverage in Soybean Area 1 and Corn Area 1. (Note — MASC’s areas vary with each crop. See soybean area map on page 6.) Friday, May 30 is the planting deadline for full soybean and corn coverage in Area 2. Farmers in Area 2 can plant both crops until June 4 with a 20 per cent decrease in coverage. May 30 is also the deadline for seeding corn in Areas 3 and 4 and the test area, which is the rest of agro-Manitoba.

Farmers can still get full coverage on wheat, barley, oats and flax if they seed by June 20. The reduced coverage deadline for greenfeed is July 15. Canola seeded by air can potentially be insured so long as “it is incorporated into the soil by mechanical means and the crop establishes to a level that is equal to or greater than the insured producer’s coverage,” MASC’s website states. “The incorporation date will be deemed to be the seeding date, with all aerial seeded acreage required to be reported on the Seeded Acreage Report by June 22.” Farmers unable to seed due to wet fields are eligible for compensation under the Excess Moisture Program (EMI). It pays eligible farmers at least $50 an acre, less a minimum five per cent deductible. So for example, if a farmer had a 1,000-acre farm and all of it was too wet to seed that farmer would be paid on 950 acres, Koroscil said. See DEADLINES on page 6 »

New farmers’ market opens The Forks in downtown Winnipeg has expanded to include a seasonal farmers’ market with a focus on fresh foods By Shannon VanRaes CO-OPERATOR STAFF


new far mers’ market has sprouted in Winnipeg with the hopes of putting down deep roots in the coming years. Located at the historic intersection of the Assiniboine and Red rivers, The Forks Farmers’ Market will host more than two dozen vend o r s e a c h Su n d a y f ro m 1 1 a . m . t o 4 p. m . until October. “We decided to start smaller, so we had begun with a maximum of 25 vendors but this week we’re already at 28, so the response has been great,” said Clare MacKay, vice-president of marketing and communications for The Forks. The inaugural market day took place over the Victoria Day weekend and drew crowds throughout the afternoon.

MacKay said The Forks has wanted to add a farmers’ market to its roster for a few years, but it wasn’t until the organizers of Winnipeg’s Downtown Farmers’ Market became involved that all the pieces fell into place. Many of the tenants in The Forks Market already sell fresh, local produce, as well as locally produced value-added goods, MacKay noted, adding the new, outdoor farmers’ market will compliment existing businesses. “I think it will actually be great for everybody,” MacKay said. “If people come down just to go to the farmers’ market they’ll discover the people who are in The Forks Market... and if people come to visit their favourite Forks Market tenant, they will discover the farmers’ market as well, so we’re kind of hoping we will cross-pollinate.” Organizers of the new market have also been careful not to overlap with other farmers’ mar-

kets in the area, such as St. Norbert Farmers’ Ma rk e t w h i c h o p e n e d f o r t h e s e a s o n ove r the weekend. And that’s good news for vendors like Betty Jagodnik who operates Grammies Jams, Jellies & Preserves. “We’ve been at St. Norbert’s for about 10 years now, and we’ve done others throughout Manitoba and now we’re going to be at The Forks as well... I think this is an excellent location and it has certainly had a good turnout,” Jagodnik said. Ma c Ka y s a i d t h e n e w f a r m e r s’ m a rk e t i s intended to cater to both downtown residents and visitors to the city. “We hope we’re successful and that we’re able to expand it next year,” she said. “We’ve wanted to do this for a long time.”

So much for the ‘cheap food’ defence


g boosters habitually fall back on two defences whenever someone questions why farmers do things the way they do — usually on ethical or environmental sustainability issues. We’ve dealt with fallacies of the first mantra — our farmers must feed the world — previously in this space. Increasing the productivity of small-scale farmers — most of whom are women, improving market Laura Rance access and reducing waste will go further Editor towards feeding the world than squeezing an extra few bushels per acre out of a Prairie farmer’s wheat field. Now it appears the second fallback defence — farmers have to farm this way to produce cheap food — is headed down the tubes faster than you can say “flush.” The question isn’t whether the food produced by the machine we call modern agriculture is cheap — at least on the consumer end of things. After all, the statistics show consumers in industrialized countries have never had it so good. “Americans are spending a smaller share of their income (or corresponding amount of effort) on food than any other society in history or anywhere else in the world, yet get more for it,” say the authors of a newly released study into why more of us are getting fat. Roland Sturm, of RAND Corporation and Ruopeng An, of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign said that in the 1930s, Americans spent one-quarter of their disposable income on food. By the 1950s, that figure had dropped to one-fifth. The most recent data show the share of disposable income spent on food is now under one-tenth. The question they raise is whether cheap food is good. Their answer — shockingly — appears to be no. These researchers reviewed the data on all the suspected causes of rising rates of obesity in the U.S. in search of an explanation for why two in three Americans are overweight or obese at a time when access to nutritious food, leisure time and activities have never been easier. They looked at things like snack food, fast food, automobile use, time spent viewing television or looking at computer screens, vending machines, suburban sprawl, increasing portion sizes, female labour force participation, poverty, affluence, supermarket availability and alternatively, so-called food deserts in the urban cores. They even looked at race and socio-economic factors. While it was true that people with low incomes tended to have higher obesity rates, they also found that obesity has been rising across all demographics of society at about the same rates. “After examining available evidence, the authors say widespread availability of inexpensive food appears to have the strongest link to obesity,” their report says. This not just an American problem. The release of their data coincided with the release of another review of data collected from 188 countries worldwide that concluded 2.1 billion people, or about 30 per cent of the global population, are either obese or overweight. The rise in obesity over the past three decades presents a “major public health epidemic in both the developed and developing world,” the report from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington says. It’s bad enough that cheap food is now seen as a major public health threat — but a threat to national security? That was the gist of the press conference called by U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and retired U.S. army generals last week to condemn those who would water down new nutritional standards for that country’s school lunch programs. With one in five American youth too overweight to enlist in the military, how would the country find enough soldiers to defend itself in times of war? “An estimated 75 per cent of all young Americans between the ages of 17 and 24 are unable to join the military for various reasons including being physically unfit,” they said in a statement. If there ever really was a so-called cheap food “policy,” it has successfully, unequivocally failed. As farmers well know, even though the spectacular productivity of current practices has resulted in cheap food for consumers, it’s an expensive way to farm with its high capital costs and razor-thin margins — not to mention the costs that are externalized, such as declining biodiversity, soil and water quality. We’ve often wondered why farmers ever embraced the notion of “cheap food” in the first place; it seems to perpetuate the philosophy that’s making farmers into an endangered species. In our view, farmers can offer a much more salient value proposition to society — one that is rooted in stewardship, social responsibility and producing foods that are a solution to public health issues, rather than a contributor. That’s something that could attract public “buy-in” like never before.

Sunset for fossil fuels? A carbon fee of $50 or $60 per tonne could reduce carbon emissions by the necessary 80 per cent by 2050 By Phil Elder / Troy Media CALGARY, ALTA.


retend you’re a shareholder in an oil and gas, or coal, company. At the annual general meeting, the treasurer cheerfully states the impressive net present value of the company’s reserves, while the CEO announces a multimillion-dollar exploration budget for the coming year. But you’re nervous. Recently you read the International Energy Agency’s announcement that two-thirds of presently known fossil fuel reserves can never be burned if the world is to avoid catastrophic, human-caused climate change. In fact, the notoriously conservative IEA predicts an intolerable rise in global temperatures of up to 6 C if we carry on business as usual. You also know that virtually every serious scientist on earth agrees with the IEA, even though debate continues on some of the complex details. Major cuts in greenhouse gas emissions are essential. You also know that American money managers with $2 trillion of assets have written to the major petroleum companies and the big utilities in the U.S. to ask how they will deal with these about-to-be-stranded fossil fuel assets which are so overvalued on their balance sheets. Finally, you wonder how the rumoured substantial increase in Alberta’s fee on carbon will affect corporate economics. Has your company also radically overstated the value of reserves which may never be burned? Is it not risky to spend more money exploring for more? What should you do? Of course, your company could be one of the lucky ones. If it’s a low-cost producer of conventional light oil, perhaps it will be able to pay the carbon fee and still sell every last barrel at a profit. But high-cost producers will be in big trouble. On May 9, Tom Rand, a brilliant venture capitalist and policy analyst, gave a powerful presentation at the University of Calgary, where he argued that if a carbon fee is used to “internalize the externalities” and end the free dumping of greenhouse gas emissions into our atmosphere, renewable energy will

be cheaper than all but the lowest-cost fossil fuels. (This fee will also spur significant energy conservation.) His only question is whether we can scale up the huge conversion to renewable energy fast enough. What we voters have to do is tell governments to set a proper fee on carbon. If we do so, clean, renewable energy will displace the highest-cost fossil fuels (oilsands and coal) because of market economics, “the most powerful tool we have at our disposal.” In his book, Waking the Frog (the title refers to the well-known metaphor of a coldblooded frog in a pot adjusting to incremental temperature increases until it dies in boiling water), Rand argues that: “The good news is that we can solve the climate problem. The capital we need sits in our pension funds and money markets, the policy tools we need to unlock it are well understood (if politically problematic), and existing clean technology and emerging innovations are fully capable of powering our civilization. Aggressive action is nowhere near as expensive as opponents claim.” Rand argues that a carbon fee of $50 or $60 per tonne would so accelerate the scaleup of clean tech renewable energy that we would be on the path toward reducing carbon emissions by the necessary 80 per cent by 2050. “A price on carbon is not a leftwing conspiracy to control the world. It is the best tool in our arsenal to unleash the might of our industry, capital and entrepreneurs...” Another important point he makes is that there is no “us,” (the good renewable guys), and “them,” (the reactionary coal-burning utilities and oilsands operators). We are all immersed in the pot of hot water. If we help each other, everybody can climb out. And we do need each other. Rand says that “Exxon is not going to be replaced; it must be forced to evolve.” We need “policy that directly engages the existing energy giants” and other big players, including pension funds with the necessary long-term time frame. If they come on board, we can build the necessary renewable energy infrastructure quickly enough to avoid climatic shifts that would cause unimaginable hardship. We need not fear this energy shift. In fact, we could be world leaders in the 21st century’s energy system — unless we cling to outmoded 20th century thinking.

McDonald’s pilot could usher in overdue reforms The fast-food giant’s bid to use only ‘sustainable beef’ may finally force the industry to share data and work together More information

By Glenn Cheater



s noted in this week’s livestock section, McDonald’s has picked Canada for its first-ever “sustainable beef” pilot project. Does that news make you think, ‘Oh goodie, more paperwork,’ or bring A&W ’s “Better Beef ” campaign to mind? And, of course, you’ll note McDonald’s is not offering premiums for this program. That’s a point made repeatedly by senior company officials in a very well-researched (and very lengthy) article at on the sustainable beef initiative. So more hoops for producers to jump through and no extra money. It’s the same old story, right? Bu t t h e re j u s t m i g h t b e something ver y different going on here. In the same stor y, McDonald’s officials also repeatedly insist that producers who participate in its program will be able to boost their profitability. That’s likely why the company sent a link to the article to members of the Canadian

In order for it to work, there has to be a system-wide sharing of data.

Roundtable for Sustainable Beef a couple of months back. ( Type ‘sustainable beef ’ in the search box and look for the article by Joel Makower.)

Crazy talk

My first thought was this is crazy talk. Doing extra stuff takes time and costs money, so sustainable beef will be more expensive to produce. But my second was McDonald’s and its corporate partners in the global sustainable beef initiative — JBS, Cargill, and Walmart — know a thing or two about finding efficiencies. And they do it by recording and tracking everything, and then mining that vast pool of data to find a better way. Details on McDonald’s sustainable beef pilot are scarce, but the idea seems to be to take the newly relaunched

B e e f In f o X c h a n g e Sy s t e m (BIXS 2.0) and add data from an enhanced Verified Beef Production program. VBP’s website states that in addition to adding modules on animal care, environmental stewardship, and biosecurity, it will also be incorporating “existing materials” from the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef. There’s not much in the way of existing materials at this point, just guiding principles. Environmental protection and animal health and welfare are two of them, but so is efficiency and innovation. It’s pretty easy to see how efficiency and innovation figures into the original concept for BIXS — by sending back carcass data to producers, they could get some idea of how well their breeding, feeding, and other management programs are working.

We welcome readers’ comments on issues that have been covered in the Manitoba Co-operator. In most cases we cannot accept “open” letters or copies of letters which have been sent to several publications. Letters are subject to editing for length or taste. We suggest a maximum of about 300 words. Please forward letters to Manitoba Co-operator, 1666 Dublin Ave., Winnipeg, R3H 0H1 or Fax: 204-954-1422 or email: (subject: To the editor)

But how might that work for something such as animal welfare? We l l , i m a g i n e t h i s n e w enhanced BIXS — let’s call it 3.0 — had transport data loaded in. Want to bet that some smart cookie couldn’t find a way to use that data to figure out which trucking companies do a better job of reducing stress during transport and therefore minimize shrink? Wouldn’t you like to know that? Actually, most producers would just like to know the basics and get carcass data back. It’s a complaint that comes up over and over again in the recently released straw man followup repor t con ducted by Toma and Bouma. The duo conducted in-depth interviews of more than three dozen industry leaders and experts. (It, along with an FCC survey of cattle producers, is available at www.strawman Not surprisingly, there were a lot of comments about the “high level of mistrust” between the feedlot and producer sectors. Many pointed to the unwillingness of the

The latest “speNDP” assault on Manitoba’s $3.5-billion agriculture industry involves the Farmland Education Tax Rebate. In the last election the NDP promised to eliminate the final portion of education taxes on farmland, but this did not happen. The “speNDP” has also now capped the amount of rebate to $5,000 per farm and the rebate does not flow automatically. Landowners must apply for it. That application process has been manipulated by the NDP to ensure many Manitobans who are entitled to it never get it. In past years, there has been a three-year window to apply for the rebate, but this year the “speNDP” has set a hard deadline of March 31, 2014. Then the NDP delayed release of the forms required to apply for the rebate. Those forms were not available until the end of December. Farm families were left a very small window to complete and submit their forms or lose the credit they were entitled to. This is a process designed to fail, and disproportionally targets female landowners. If this has happened to you please contact my office at or call 204-745-2203. The “speNDP” has given a whole new meaning to “cash cow” with its combination of blatant tax increases and program cuts. The agricultural industry deserves to be respected and encouraged for its contribution to Manitoba’s economy. It’s time for change. Blaine Pedersen MLA Midland


Well, that’s going to change in a hurry if the McDonald’s pilot goes ahead as envisioned. In order for it to work, there has to be a system-wide sharing of data. And once it’s out there, that big pool of detailed data will be mined — whether it’s to evaluate the performance of a trucking company, or a feedlot, backgrounder, or cow-calf operation. How this will play out is still an unknown. Obviously McDonald’s is keen to placate consumers who fret that beef production is bad for the planet or uses poor animal welfare practices. I t ’s a r a d i c a l — a l b e i t entirely unproven — concept that beef sustainability could lead to greater efficiencies and improved profitability for the entire industry. But wouldn’t it be a kicker if an effort to placate consumers ended up doing that? Glenn Cheater is editor of Alberta Farmer Express.

Out of (purple) gas The Manitoba ombudsman intervened on behalf of a farmer over a disputed Fuel Tax Act refund The following is an excerpt from the provincial ombudsman’s 2013 annual report. The full report is available online at

feedlot sector to share carcass data with the producers as the symbol of a fractured system.


ax-exempt marked fuel, commonly called “purple gas,” is available in Manitoba under The Fuel Tax Act for the operation of agricultural machinery and registered farm trucks. Because this marked fuel is available from only a limited number of suppliers, the act provides for a tax refund to purchasers if they buy unmarked fuel because marked fuel was unavailable. To receive a tax refund, the purchaser must submit an application within two years of the purchase and must include a copy of the fuel purchase invoice and evidence demonstrating the purchaser’s entitlement to the refund. A farmer submitted an application for a tax refund on his unmarked fuel purchase to Manitoba Finance and was denied the refund. His application was submitted within the required twoyear period, the fuel was used for legitimate farming purposes, and the purchaser provided the department with an affidavit from his fuel supplier indicating

that when the unmarked fuel was delivered, the supplier did not have any marked fuel available. The farmer submitted his application twice for reconsideration but the department remained firm in its denial. The farmer complained to the ombudsman on the basis that his application was unfairly denied. In the course of our investigation, the department explained that, in its view, marked fuel was not “unavailable” to the purchaser since it was available at another supplier in the community — a supplier with whom the purchaser did not have a business relationship. This matter had become a protracted dispute and there was some merit to the position of both the complainant and the department. The ombudsman questioned whether the department’s position was consistent with the primary purpose of The Fuel Tax Act, namely, to exempt farmers from paying taxes on fuel used in operating agricultural machinery while carrying out agricultural work. The ombudsman also noted that “unavailable” is not defined in the act. At our suggestion, the department reassessed the circumstances and chose to issue the purchaser a tax refund.

FROM PAGE ONE DEADLINES Continued from page 1


The EMI deductible increases by five per cent following each year the farmer makes a claim and declines by the same amount to a minimum of five per cent following claim-free years. Farmers can buy down their deductible and pay a fee to increase their coverage to $75 of $100 an acre, but must do so by Nov. 30 the year before spring seeding. Some farmers who didn’t get around to doing it last year have signed up now to boost EMI coverage for 2015, realizing they might be too busy to think about it this fall, Koroscil said. As of early last week, seeding was still delayed due to wet fields in the southwest, northwest and southeast. Hot, windy weather May 23 and 24 was welcome, but showers Sunday and more forecast for this week, threatened to further delay field work. With almost three weeks left until the final June 20 seeding deadline, MASC isn’t hazarding a guess as to how many acres might go unseeded in 2014 due to excessive moisture, said David Van Deynze, manager of claim services. Last year 219,241 insured crop acres were too wet to plant by June 20, he said. That was almost double the 117,623 acres unseeded in 2012. The record was three million acres set in 2011.

Souris rivers and around Lake Manitoba. Some industr y obser vers have predicted Manitoba farmers might plant as many as 1.5 million acres of soybeans this year, up from a record 1.05 million set last year.

Manitoba still has the potential to see a large number of soybean acres seeded in 2014 despite the looming deadline, said Kristen Podolsky, production specialist, with the Manitoba Pulse Growers Association. Much depends on

this week’s weather. But she also noted that most soybean plantings will occur in the central region, where planting is more advanced. Last year only 2.1 per cent of the soybean acres seeded in Manitoba were in the new crop

insurance test area, Podolsky said. Crop insurance data shows in 2013, 55 per cent of the insured soybeans were planted in the central region.

e x e c u t i v e d i r e c t o r Wa d e Sobkowich. “Poor rail service has a very direct and real impact on grain farmers, so it stands to reason that they would consider taking action,” Sobkowich said. “Many grain companies are also considering their options at this time. We’ve already seen one company file a level-of-service complaint and it’s possible others will be moving forward as well.”

“This situation is about a 100-year crop and the worst winter‎ in decades, not about a level-of-service failure by CN,” CN spokesman Mark Hallman said in an email. “CN is moving record grain volumes so far this crop year and has fared better than all other railroads during this difficult winter. The... association’s complaint is unfounded and ill advised. CN is a backbone of the economy and a true supply chain enabler with an agenda that is aligned with customers. CN will vigorously defend its record and reputation in front of the CTA.” A CP spokesman declined to comment. The railways aren’t investing in increased capacity because grain is captive, according to White. As a result railways eventually get most of the business while keeping costs down to maximize shareholder returns. “But they have a statutory

obligation to move the crop that is coming, not the fiveyear trailing average,” he said. “If we have this logistics system on five-year averages we are not going anywhere as an industry.” The 120-day CTA process will be expensive, White said. “We think we have a decent case and... with a favourable ruling this could be the longterm fix farmers have been demanding,” he said.

week. That’s still not enough, said White, who said a record 23-million-tonne carry-over is expected July 31. “We’re in trouble this year with even a moderate or average crop starting with a system already plugged with 23 million tonnes of grain,” he said. “We’re in trouble right now.” The former Canadian Wheat Board filed a level-of-service complaint April 14, 1997 against CN and CP Rail accusing both of failing to provide adequate service during the winter of 1996-97. CN reached an out-of-court settlement with the wheat board. The CTA ruled in the wheat board’s favour Sept. 30, 1998. The board then used the findings in a lawsuit again CP Rail. The wheat board sought $45 million in compensation from CP, but reached an out-of-court settlement for $15 million.

Unfilled orders

As of last week, there were 63,000 unfilled grain car orders, peaking at 78,000 cars in midApril, Sobkowich said. The backlog is estimated to have cost Canada’s grain industry, including farmers several billions of dollars due to lower grain prices, lost sales, contract penalties and demurrage. The railways blamed the backlog on a colder-than-normal winter and a record 76-milliontonne western Canadian crop.

Expensive exercise

The CCGA already has the moral support of other farm groups, but isn’t expecting them to help pay the bill, White said. “We’ve rolled up our sleeves and will do what needs to be done here to stand up for the rights of growers,” he added. “We’re going to see it through to the end.” In March, the government ordered the railways to move a million tonnes of grain a

More changes coming to Canadian Grain Commission What won’t change is protecting the ‘Canada brand’ through mandatory outward inspection, says Elwin Hermanson By Allan Dawson CO-OPERATOR STAFF


he Canadian Grain Commission is looking for more ways to streamline its operations without compromising Canada’s reputation for highquality exports, its chief commissioner says. Elwin Hermanson said that may bring changes to how services like inspections prior to export are delivered, but not the end result for customers. “Our minister has been very clear and very public in saying he wants to protect the Canada brand. He sees value in the Canada brand. And he has also stated there has to be a cert (Certificate) Final,” Hermanson said in an interview. “That doesn’t mean we have to keep doing outward inspection exactly as we are currently doing it.” One option is to allow private grain inspectors to do outward inspections for willing exporters and grain buyers, with CGC oversight. However, CGC outward inspections would be available too, Hermanson said. “There are some customers

“It’s (outward inspection) not going to be voluntary, or at least that’s not what the minister is saying.” ELWIN HERMANSON

who won’t accept Canadian grain unless it’s inspected by the CGC,” he said. “There are others who will. But to protect the Canada brand the minister has made it very clear that he wants CGC oversight.” As of August 1, 2013, it’s optional for grain companies to have grain inspected as it enters their export terminals, which is referred to as “inward inspection.” In the past, that was mandatory as well, and only done by CGC inspectors. Grain companies that want inward inspection must hire private inspectors at their own cost. Some in the grain industry want outward inspection made voluntary too. But outward grain inspection is too important to make it optional, Hermanson said.

CGC defends capital spending delays Grain commission spokesman Remi Gosselin says it wasn’t done to save the federal government money at farmers’ expense By Allan Dawson CO-OPERATOR STAFF

The Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) is defending a decision to defer capital spending until after its new funding process was in place last year. “It was about being responsible stewards of public funds and not committing the sector to more money than it had to,” CGC spokesman Remi Gosselin said in an interview May 13. Gosselin said the capital spending was delayed not so that the costs would be off-loaded onto producers, but so the commission knew what its new role would be, he said. Gosselin was reacting to a story in the Manitoba Co-operator May 8 that reported the CGC delayed capital spending until new user fees paid for by farmers and grain companies covered most of the CGC’s budget instead of allocations from the federal government. “We wanted to tailor our capital expenditure to the kind of organization we are after the changes we made,” CGC chief commissioner Elwin Hermanson said in an interview May 14. “It’s like moving

from one house to another house — you don’t buy the furniture until you move in...” However, Hermanson said the CGC made sure it had the infrastructure and equipment to fulfil its mandate. “I’m pretty proud of our record in that regard,” he said. CGC changes, including dropping inward inspections at terminal elevators, resulted in staff cuts. “You don’t want to commit to some major capital improvements when your workforce might be reduced,” Gosselin said. “It’s part of planning and you want to be responsible. I think producers can appreciate that.” With far fewer employees working in terminal elevators, the CGC wants to retrofit some of its inspection areas, Gosselin said. There are fewer CGC staff working at its Winnipeg headquarters so less office space is required, he added. “We need to do some retrofitting,” Gosselin said. “In some of the labs, we need to modernize some of the equipment. Some of this stuff would have happened anyway.”

“It’s the country’s reputation and the industry that we have to be concerned about,” he said. “That’s our mandate... We work for companies, we work for farmers, but we work for Canada and for the benefit of the grain industry in Canada.” Higher CGC user fees took effect Aug. 1, 2013 aimed at making the CGC self-funding. Farmers and grain companies that pay those fees and are closely scrutinizing what the CGC does and how much it costs. Currently about $40 million, or two-thirds of the CGC’s average annual $60-million budget comes from the $1.82 a tonne charged for outward inspection on about 23 million tonnes of grain exports. Hermanson estimates outward inspection costs the CGC 50 or 60 cents a tonne, but it needs to

charge $1.82 to cover most of the rest of its costs. What’s more, outward inspection is done on Canadian grain exported in ships, which accounts for only a third of the grain Canada produces. Grain sold domestically or exported to the United States doesn’t contribute. “So, we’re looking at how we might correct that,” he said. “It’s not easy to fix.” Assuring quality isn’t just about maintaining foreign markets as Canadian grain production increases, it’s about expanding markets, he said. If the CGC could collect a checkoff on every tonne of Canadian grain, which Hermanson said is unlikely, the cost per tonne would be low. Under that model, CGC would cut its outward inspection fees, which Hermanson said he suspects would be similar to what private inspection companies would charge. “The cert final is important,” Hermanson said. “You’ve got to have some document that customers are confident in. And the other thing is, you have to have a process that protects

you from actions from other governments.” A grain exporter and grain buyer might agree to terms regarding a grain sale, but the importing country could block the import for phytosanitary reasons. Hermanson said the CGC played a key role in keeping Europe open to Canadian flax imports following the discovery shipments were contaminated with traces of CDC Triffid, a genetically modified flax not approved in Europe. “Cadmium levels in durum is another example where we were able to identify it was a potential problem, work with stakeholders to correct it and now our cadmium levels in durum are low enough, it’s not impeding sales around the world,” Hermanson said. “Those are multi, multimillion-dollar events that have taken place that have been to the benefit of Canada. That’s why it’s important that somehow we have the funding in place to do the job that we need to do so that we can compete with the U.S. and Australia for markets.”

Rural Oregon counties back ban on GMO crops The ban was supported by a coalition of more than 180 farmers and community members By Shelby Sebens portland, oregon / reuters


oters in two small Oregon counties approved c o n t rov e r s i a l b a l l o t measures to ban cultivation of genetically engineered crops within their boundar ies May 20, though one measure is vulnerable to legal challenge under a new state law. The measure in Jackson County in southern Oregon, garnering “yes” votes from nearly 66 per cent of voters there, has drawn national attention and more than $1 million in campaign funding to the community, which has just 117,650 registered voters. The results are still unofficial and will likely not be c e r t i f i e d f o r n e a r l y t h re e

weeks, according to Jackson County Clerk Chris Walker. The ban is supported by a coalition of more than 180 farmers and community members, who have been pushing for the vote on the i s s u e f o r m o re t h a n t w o years. “It’s a great day for the people of Oregon who care about sustainability and healthy ecosystems,” the group GMO Free Oregon declared on its Facebook page after the results. Opponents conceded defeat but said the debate would continue. “We respect the voice of the voters, but remain convinced... the crop ban is bad public policy,” said Barr y Bushue, president of the Oregon Farm Bureau.

“We will continue to fight to protect the rights of all farmers to choose for themselves how they farm.” Supporters say the area’s organic and conventional crops are in danger of contamination by genetically e n g i n e e re d c r o p s, w h i c h are typically altered to withstand pesticides or resist insect damage. They also fear widespread use of pesticides associated with the crops. “ We are either going to choose the chemical corporations for agriculture or we are going to choose our family farms,” local farmer Chris Hardy, a grower of beets and Swiss chard who helped start the initiative, said earlier in the day. The Jackson County meas u re re q u i re s p e o p l e t o

“harvest, destroy or remove all genetically engineered plants” within 12 months of the enactment of the ordinance. A s i m i l a r m e a s u re w a s approved the same day in n e i g h b o u r i n g Jo s e p h i n e County. But that measure is expected to be challenged in court because it is not exempt from a 2013 law barring such GMO bans. Jackson County’s effort was underway before that law and is thus exempt. Last year, an experimental, unapproved biotech wheat strain developed by Monsanto Co. was discovered contaminating a farm field in the state. Wheat exports were temporarily disrupted because foreign buyers feared contamination. Opponents say the GMO

bans will be costly to enforce. Campaign materials urging a “no” vote said it was “important for Jackson County to embrace all forms of farming and ranching.” Jackson County, Oregon, is not alone. In 2004, Mendocino County, California, became the first jurisdiction in the United States to outlaw the production of genetically modified crops. The vote comes as a larger movement is underway in many U.S. states to seek mandatory labelling of foods made from genetically engineered crops. Monsanto and other developers of genetically engineered crops say their products are safe and that mandatory labels will confuse consumers and increase costs of food production.

U.S. meat labelling requirements come under fire in Appeals Court Judges say the law is too broad and gives regulators too much power over how products are labelled By Julia Edwards WASHINGTON / REUTERS


he Obama administration’s argument for keeping its labelling requirements in place for meat vendors is too broad and would give regulators too much power over how goods are labelled, judges in a U.S. Appeals Court said May 19. The D.C. Circuit Court heard argument from the Obama administration and lawyers representing North American meat vendors about the 2013 U.S. Department of Agriculture regulation that requires North American vendors to list where the animals they sell as meat are born, raised and slaughtered. The administration argued that the labelling requirement gives meat consumers information they want and need about which products originate solely within U.S. borders and which come from Canada or Mexico. The judges said the government’s argument was too broad. Regulatory agencies could have too much power over what is printed on labels if they need only prove the information they seek is in consumers’ interest, they said. Meat vendors who do business with the two countries have challenged the regula-

tion, saying it violates their free speech rights with burdensome wording that has no impact on consumer health and safety. In a rare move that signified the importance of any potential verdict, a three-judge panel that previously heard the case recommended it be heard by the entire court. Several judges asked the attorney arguing for the administration, Daniel Tenny, to suggest a test that could be used to establish when government agencies can require companies to use certain labels on their products. Tenny said the government would always be justified in requiring labels so long as they are providing consumers with information they want or need to make informed decisions. To the courtroom audience’s amusement, several judges posed hypothetical situations to Tenny to exemplify how the law could be applied too broadly under his argument. Chief Judge Merrick Garland asked Tenny if he thought the government could force milk manufacturers to include missing children labels. Judge Janice Brown asked if the agencies could require a label telling consumers that beef production increases greenhouse gas emissions.

FCC Drive Away Hunger launches 11th food drive campaign Collection tours will take place this fall in several provinces Staff


a r m C re d i t C a n a d a (FCC) and its partners throughout the country launched a food drive May 6 that aims to collect three million pounds of food for Canada’s food banks to mark the 11th anniversary of its Drive Away Hunger campaign. “To date, we’ve collected more than 17 million pounds of food through FCC Drive Away Hunger,” said Greg Stewart, FCC president and CEO. “Hunger is an issue that affects many families in rural Canada,” he said, noting that hunger touches nearly 8 5 0 , 0 0 0 Ca n a d i a n s e a c h month, many of whom are children. “FCC Drive Away Hunger is one of the ways we give back to the rural communities where our customers and employees live and work.” As the largest employeeled food drive in Canada, the project involves driving a tractor and trailer through various communities to collect food and cash donations

olumes were down slightly at most Manitoba cattle auction yards for the week ended May 23, but prices remained firm overall. Gladstone and Killarney did not hold sales due to their biweekly schedules. The total number of cattle making their way through the rings for the week was 3,151, compared to 3,560 the previous week. Recent wet weather has kept yards muddy, discouraging some producers from making the trip to local auction markets. Many ranchers are also eager to get their animals to grass, according to Rick Wright of Heartland Order Buying Co., who noted low volumes have made it tough for buyers to put a full load together. Animals being auctioned off were also somewhat lopsided in terms of variety, he said. “We saw a lot of heifers compared to steers, and a lot of wet-nosed sucking calves coming in compared to weaned calves, so it was a mixed bag of tricks as far as quantity and quality went.” Such factors are important to the buyer, he explained, because wet-nosed calves (not weaned) require more work and effort from the owner. Most require time to get started on feed and have to be processed carefully before they’re mature enough to turn to grass. Initially, they are a confinement animal instead of one that can be put to pasture. Despite the uneven showing, prices are still high with no end in sight, he said. “What looked high three weeks ago seems cheap today; the market continues to go very strong.”

“What looked high three weeks ago seems cheap today.” rick wright

On the feeder cattle side, small advances were made at most yards on heifers under 800 pounds and steers between 400 and 500 lbs. Wright estimates 85 per cent of the feeder cattle coming in were below 700 lbs. “So it’s been a market that’s been good for the seller and a little tough for the buyer.” Demand has been steady from both the U.S. and Western Canada but is sagging from the East. Wright said there hasn’t been enough volume for eastern buyers to put the necessary numbers together. On the slaughter end, numbers were up slightly from the previous week, with the majority being cows, according to Wright. “I would say we’re selling two to 2-1/2 times more cows right now than we normally would be this time of year. We’ve had high volumes all spring.” Top-end prices were still realized for good bulls at most yards, however. Wright said he expects this marks the end of high volumes for the spring, as seeding is underway and many producers want to get into the field. Volumes, he said, will “probably shrink down to nothing by the end of June.” Many auction houses are down to biweekly sales schedules already and Wright expected others will be tempted to turn to a summer schedule soon, due to the overall lack of volume.

EXCHANGES: May 23, 2014

A deadly pig virus that has decimated herds in the United States and sent prices rocketing is likely to subside before the end of this year as the causes are being identified, the head of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) said. Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv) has wiped out more than 10 per cent of the U.S. pig population and forecasters have said losses from PEDv in the world’s biggest pork exporter could cut production by as much as seven per cent in 2014. “I’m confident. Like in all other diseases we know how to stop them once we have identified the causes properly,” OIE director general Bernard Vallat told Reuters. He said the spread of the virus was likely mainly due to a lack of hygienic precau-

tions, notably disinfecting trucks entering and leaving farms, but was also potentially linked to feed. Vallat expected the disease to stabilize in the United States after a first wave mainly hit so-called “naive” herds which had not been previously exposed to the virus and had not developed antibodies. “I expect it to subside before the end of the year,” he said. The European Union approved new rules this month aimed at limiting the spread of the virus, notably for pig blood products imported into the 28-member bloc, highlighting the risk of animal feed products as a potential transmission agent. “There are high suspicions about these blood products which have been incorporated in feed and this is why Europe took it into account in its precaution measures,” Vallat said. Pig blood products are dehydrated and mixed with grain into feed, which is then given to piglets, he said, but added he was surprised the dehydration process did not kill the virus.

Forecast for warm weekend spurs selling in canola The U.S. is catching up on its corn and soy planting Terryn Shiells CNSC


anola futures on the ICE Futures Ca n a d a t ra d i n g p l a t f o r m e n d e d mixed during the week ended May 23, with slight losses seen in the July contract and gains in the new-crop months. The correction of the spread between oldand new-crop values was bearish for the July future. Though most values were firmer, they were off their highs of the week as the market succumbed to profit-taking after the July contract moved toward key resistance of $500 per tonne. The climb toward $500 may have triggered some farmer hedging, but overall, producers were slow sellers during the week as they focused on spring field work. Concerns about slow seeding progress in Western Canada helped to support values, but forecasts calling for hot, dry weather during the May 24 weekend in many regions sparked some selling on May 23. If the weather stays hot and dry, farmers will be able to make significant seeding progress during the weekend. In Manitoba, seeding progress varied by region between five and 40 per cent complete as of May 21, a Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development crop report said. Saskatchewan farmers had 22 per cent of the crop seeded as of May 19, the provincial Ministry of Agriculture’s report said. The most recent Alberta crop report said as of May 20, seeding was 47.3 per cent complete across the province. Traders will continue to watch weather conditions in Western Canada going forward, with focus also on what the U.S. commodity markets and weather are doing.

Great expectations

Chicago soybean futures looked as though they might start to break lower earlier in the week, but rallied higher, breaking above the key resistance level of US$15 per bushel in the July contract. Much of the strength was linked to reports of continued strong demand from China for U.S. supplies and ongoing worries about the tight supply situation for old crop.

The advances aren’t likely to hold very long, especially for new crop, as conditions are already starting to look good for 2014-15. Planting progress has started to catch up for soybeans in the U.S., and recent rain has provided very good soil moisture conditions to start off the crop. The same goes for the U.S. corn crop, with expectations of significant planting progress during the week causing prices to drop lower. Traders will continue to watch the weather in the U.S. to determine where prices move for corn and beans — though if forecasts hold true throughout the growing season, both crops will be very large, causing prices to move lower throughout the summer. Any weather scare or unexpected demand could come in and prop up the markets, however, as well as any political disruption in the Black Sea region. Wheat markets in the U.S. were weaker across the board, with speculative-based selling continuing to push prices down. The large global supply situation, beneficial rain in the U.S. winter Wheat Belt and improving seeding conditions in the northern U.S. were all bearish. Traders will continue to watch U.S. weather in the southern Plains for winter wheat crops and northern states for spring wheat. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s weekly crop reports, normally released late on Monday afternoons, will also be important for prices. The weekly reports will show if rain is helping winter wheat conditions improve and how much progress farmers are making in seeding their spring wheat crops.

EU heading for biggest wheat crop in six years The region escaped the harsh winter that hurt the U.S. winter wheat crop By Gus Trompiz paris / reuters


he European Union is on course to harvest its largest wheat crop since 2008 this summer, as the bloc mostly escaped the harsh weather that hit rival exporter the United States, analysts said. Fa v o u ra b l e c o n d i t i o n s s h o u l d keep average yields close to the strong levels seen last year and has also helped far mers to increase sowings this season, particularly in Britain. G ood EU prospects have contributed to a retreat in interna-

tional prices in recent weeks — with Chicago wheat falling nine per cent from one-year highs — as investors set a weather-worn U.S. crop against ample global supply. The United States and EU are the world’s top two wheat exporters. A survey by Reuters of 12 analysts and traders gave a median forecast of 137.5 million tonnes for the EU soft wheat harvest. This was up from 134.3 million last year and the highest since 139.4 million in 2008, according to official EU figures. Including durum wheat, the m e d i a n o f c ro p e s t i m a t e s f ro m 11 forecasters including the U.S.

Department of Agriculture also projected a six-year high, at 145 million tonnes. “The crop looks absolutely fantastic. If everything continues to go well, it is going to be big,” Macquarie analyst Chris Gadd said. A run of clement weather since autumn has allowed EU farmers to sow a large wheat area, spared crops from serious winter damage and brought rain just as a dry start to spring was beginning to stress some crops. Persisting dryness in the northeast of top EU wheat producer France is still a concern, while summerstyle heat in Spain this month has

served as a reminder that crops are vulnerable to harsh weather in May and June, a vital yield-determining period. But these remain moderate risks compared with the drought, extreme cold and scorching temperatures endured by U.S. wheat, and some analysts see further upside to the EU crop outlook. Illustrating the contrast, far m office FranceAgriMer rated 73 per cent of French soft wheat crops good or excellent by May 12. The equivalent rating for U.S. winter wheat in a government update on Monday was just 29 per cent.

Canada to be site of McDonald’s sustainable beef pilot McDonald’s is working with CCA on ambitious project to make Canada the first country to supply it with sustainable beef


By Alexis Kienlen STAFF


cDonald’s has chosen Canada over Australia and Europe for a pilot project in its ambitious quest to serve only “sustainable beef” in its massive global restaurant empire. The exact terms of the pilot — or even a definition of sustainable — have yet to be finalized, but the fast-food giant has the backing of the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association, and it’s working with the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB), an organization the CCA founded last year. “It is still in the preliminary stages, so there are a lot of details to be worked out, but everyone is on the same page,” Ponoka seed stock producer Greg Bowie, who is chair of Alberta Beef Producers and a CRSB member told the Alberta Farmer. “They’re working with industry to come up with something that is sustainable long term, for the entire industry.” Bowie and others are quick to say that McDonald’s, the largest buyer of Canadian beef, has steadfastly pledged it won’t impose rules on how to raise cattle. Instead, it has promised to work with producers, feeders and packers to create practical guidelines on environmental stewardship, animal health and welfare, and food safety — a process that will likely stretch into next year. “A lot of these things are going to be things that producers are doing anyhow,” said Bowie. “They’re just going to come up with a means of proving that the producer is doing it.”

Major benefits

The pilot project could have major benefits for Canada because it is the first partner to be selected by McDonald’s, which grabbed the attention of the global beef industry six months ago by announcing it would begin sourcing verified sustainable beef in 2016. “Whether that’s from Canada, or from anywhere else, they will start buying verified sustainable beef, whatever the definition is,” said Pine Lake cow-calf producer Doug Sawyer, a CCA director and past chair of Alberta Beef Producers. “What we have to do now is put a definition to this and do it. We’re poised in Canada to capitalize on this.” Jeffrey Fitzpatrick-Stilwell, manager of

sustainability with McDonald’s Canada, declined an interview request. But a company email sent to CRSB members in March stated it “has secured support from the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association for a global McDonald’s project to take place in Canada.” One change in store for producers will be a requirement to provide more information about what they do. The foundation of the new system will be a highly detailed database able to track a host of information on millions of head of cattle. “One of the advantages to Canada over other countries is that we have our traceability system, we have BIXS 2.0 coming out, and we’ve got a very good environmental system put together,” said Sawyer. “We’ve got our new animal welfare codes of practice. We’ve got almost all the pieces there.”

Two visits

Senior officials from McDonald’s headquarters and its Canadian arm toured Alberta last summer and returned again in midMay, visiting the JBS and Cargill slaughter plants, the company’s hamburger production facility in Spruce Grove, and cattle operations. CL Ranch near Calgary, one of the province’s oldest and most prominent cattle operations, hosted both tours and the first one resulted in CEO Cherie Copithorne-Barnes being asked to head the CRSB. She also said it’s too early to talk about specifics. “Even McDonald’s to this point can’t define clearly enough what they are asking for,” she said. “Even though there’s a timeline when they want to get this project started, they want to make sure all the steps are in place and it’s done correctly.” One of those steps involves changes to the Verified Beef Production program. Program officials announced earlier this year that the on-farm food safety program will add modules for biosecurity, animal care, and environmental stewardship. “What we’re looking at now, while we’re redoing BIXS 2.0 and the Verified Beef Production, we’re going to have to add some layers in there on the environmental side and work the codes of practice into it,” added Sawyer. The Canadian pilot is also waiting for the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef to issue a set of principles that will

guide development of specific protocols. That group was set up two years ago when McDonald’s, Cargill, JBS, Merck Animal Health, and Walmart partnered with environmental organizations such as the World Wildlife Fund to address beef production issues involving soil and water quality, energy use, animal welfare, and nutrition. It will put forward principles for sustainable beef following a meeting in Brazil in November.

Logical choice

Bowie said Canada is a logical choice, he added, because it has a pristine environment compared to other countries, and the vast majority of the 66 million pounds of Canadian beef purchased by McDonald’s is fed in Alberta, which simplifies things. Producers who have attended the meetings feel the initiative is going in the right direction, both Bowie and Sawyer said. While McDonald’s presence at the table is important, the goal is to develop a Canadian program that all restaurants and retailers can use, said Sawyer. McDonald’s won’t be paying a premium for sustainable beef, but having the company promote awareness of “all of the good things that we do every day to make ourselves sustainable” will benefit all producers, said Sawyer. “We can’t do that ourselves. We don’t have the budget or the money and nobody wants to listen to us. But if we can partner with our value chain — companies like McDonald’s or whoever that is — they have millions of dollars in advertising to tell our story.” Some of that is already happening. Alberta ranchers Dave Solverson and Bob Lowe have already been featured in McDonald’s campaigns. Lowe (who has sat on the CCA’s environment committee) is in a YouTube video entitled “Where McDonald’s Canada gets our hamburger patties from,” which got over 90,000 hits, while CCA president Solverson and daughter Joanne were featured on tray liners. “Any time you get an increase in consumer support and sales for your product, there’s a benefit that goes back to all levels of the industry,” Bowie said. “Everybody will benefit if this thing is done in the right manner.”

McDonald’s decision to pilot its sustainable beef program in Canada is a win for producers, says ABP president Greg Bowie. PHOTOS: SUPPLIED

McDonald’s sustainable beef program will boost consumer confidence in Canadian beef, says Pine Lake producer Doug Sawyer.

Getting your nitrogen fix from manure a slow and steady process New research says standard formulas overstate the amount of nitrogen released By Staff


tandard calculation formulas overestimate the amount of nitrogen that is available to crops the year after solid manure is applied to the field, researchers with the National Centre for Livestock and the Environment (NCLE) say. Don Flaten and Wole Akinremi say the formula that is used in Manitoba is based on the assumption that 25 per cent of the organic nitrogen in manure will be available for crop use in the first growing season after the manure is applied. “Not only are we seeing lower availability, but it is also generally slower, with small amounts o f o rg a n i c n i t ro g e n f ro m repeated applications gradually becoming available over time,” said Flaten in an NCLE release. “If conditions are right, there is potential for these regularly manured soils to provide a substantial amount of N for crop use. For the perennial rotation at our site, total nitrogen uptake under annual N-based solid manure applications at year six is now comparable to synthetic fertilizer.” But he warned that doesn’t always happen. “Nitrogen release from solid manure is a biological process and it can be highly variable and unpredictable from one site to another or from one year to the next.” In a separate study where nutrient release was monitored for three years following beef cattle manure application to cropland, manure nitrogen availability in year two was overall superior to urea fertilizer (46-0-0) when applied to perennial crops at one site. However, at another site, there was no apparent benefit from the manure in the second or third years following application to annual cropland. Adding to this field variability is the variability of manure itself. For example, use of

extra straw in particularly cold or wet winters increases the carbon content of manure. When there is a high amount of carbon relative to nitrogen, microbial breakdown of the manure may tie up nitrogen that would otherwise be available to crops. This can delay the release of nitrogen from months to years. Akinremi said there is a bright side to this slower release. “Solid manures containing a large amount of straw may reduce the risk of nitrate leaching, particularly in a perennial system where the established root system can intercept nitrates before they move below the root zone. We observed this in our perennial plots where nitrate leaching with manure was small and no different than from plots that were not fertilized.” Akinremi and his team are focusing on how to better predict the release rate of nitrogen from different solid manures. “By understanding how these biological processes respond to different soil and weather conditions, we should be able to better estimate nitrogen availability,” says Akinremi. Their main finding so far is that the breakdown of organic nitrogen into plant-available forms was much slower for the clay soil than for the loamtextured soil used in the study. Nitrogen release rates were less than half of the 25 per cent estimated release rate used in Manitoba’s standard formula. Based on these findings, Akinremi tested a modified formula for calculating N-based manure application rates using a 12 per cent estimated release rate of organic nitrogen. His team assessed nitrogen availability and crop response for dairy manures applied according to the new formula compared to the standard calculation. While overall they observed trends in higher grain yield, nitrogen uptake and nitrogen use efficiency with the revised

formula, they advise to proceed with caution. With only one year of field data in a year that had greater-than-normal yields, the results are preliminary.

Negative consequences

Also important to keep in mind is that high rates or repeated applications of solid manure to the same field can have negative consequences. Compared with nitrogen, solid manures are relatively rich in plant-available phosphorus and potassium. High levels of soil test phosphorus pose an increased risk to surface water quality while elevated potassium levels may pose a risk to cattle health and nutrition. After six years of annual N-based applications of solid manure at both long-term sites, soil test phosphorus in the upper layer of soil has risen to levels that would trigger a shift from N-based to P-based manure management practices. This increase did not occur with intermittent applications of manure based on crop removal of phosphorus. At the NCLE site soil test potassium increased over time in proportion to the amount of manure applied. While this increase could be beneficial for potassium-deficient soils, it could induce nutritional problems in cattle if forage is grown on soils with excessive amounts of potassium. From an environmental perspective, Akinremi’s study is designed to assess the risk for nutrient leaching below the root zone in a sandy loam soil. Flaten’s study on heavy clay soil at the NCLE is mostly focused on nutrient accumulations in soil, rather than losses. Their research receives financial support from Manitoba Beef Producers, Dairy Farmers of Manitoba, Manitoba Pork Council, the Canada-Manitoba Agri-Food Development Initiative (ARDI), the Manitoba Rural Adaptation Council (MRAC), and the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI).

ith summer finally in sight, the province is now beginning its annual survey of winter losses in Manitoba beehives. “Still too early to tell, but what I am hearing is that there is a lot of variability, from very low losses, especially in indoor wintered colonies to very high losses,” said Rheal Lafreniere, Manitoba’s provincial apiarist. Some of the early numbers point to bee losses above 50 per cent in certain circumstances, but confirmation is still needed, he said. “Now that it is actually starting to warm up, we should start to hear a bit more accurate numbers,” Lafreniere said, adding that means calculating the actual number of viable hives remaining after spring culls. Survey forms were sent to beekeepers across the province last week and the final report should be completed by June 30. “I am also hearing that some beekeepers in the northwest region are reporting high losses, but again we will have a more accurate number when we have the survey results,” said the provincial apiarist. Jim Campbell of the Red River Apiarists’ Association and the Manitoba Beekeepers’

Rheal Lafreniere

Association said he has been hearing of losses of about 30 per cent, which is consistent with losses in recent years. However, his own bees came out strong this spring. “I’m a bit of an anomaly I think, because my bees have survived quite well for quite a number of years and I attribute that to probably having a good variety of floral sources around me here,” he said. Spring dwindle — when bees die or disappear after leaving the hive in search of food, or don’t breed fast enough — can also impact colonies. “Sometimes in the early spring the bees will die off, just because there are not enough food sources for them,” Campbell said, adding a late spring can also make it harder for foraging bees to find food.

Lower volume of animals arrives for May 21 auction The onset of summer means auctions will only be held once per month beginning in June By Mark Elliot Co-operator contributor


he Winnipeg Livestock Auction May 21 was an i n d i c a t i o n t h a t s u mmer has arrived. Only 100 sheep and goats were delivered. Beginning in June, auctions will be held on the first Wednesday of each month. There were no culls at this sale and the quality of the ewes was quite noticeable. The young hair ewes were in the price range of the wool ewes. The price ranged from $0.80 to $0.95 per pound. The bidding indicated higher interest in the young wool ewes. Three 90-pound Rideau-cross ewes brought $126.90 ($1.41 per pound). A 120-pound Rideaucross ewe brought $133.20 ($1.11 per pound). A group of eight young Suffolk-cross ewes brought $164.16 ($1.14 per pound). A 220-pound Dorset-cross ram was the only ram at this sale. A very impressive ram

with massive curled horns brought $209 ($0.95 per pound). Heavyweight lambs were represented by a 140-pound Dorper-cross lamb. This lamb brought $156.80 ($1.12 per pound). No market lambs were delivered. No feeder lambs were delivered. However, the new-crop lambs were within this weight range. There was only a 70-pound Cheviot-cross lamb that represented the lightweight classification at this sale. This Cheviot-cross lamb brought $133 ($1.90 per pound). Some strong bidding for the two 88-pound new-crop lambs indicated steady demand and interest, similar to the last couple auctions. Both groups had excellent quality, which brought $166.32 ($1.89 per pound). There was a limited selection of goats. Two 90-pound Boer-cross goats (does) brought $122.50

Meat processors applaud tenderized beef labelling

But they say ground beef should also carry cautionary labels By Alex Binkley Co-operator contributor


eat processors are welcoming Health Canada’s regulations for mandatory cooking advisory labels on all mechanically tenderized beef (MTB) products but wonder why retailers aren’t required to put similar labels on ground beef packages. Jim Laws, president of the Canadian Meat Council, said in an interview the department’s MTB labelling order, which comes into effect Aug. 21, “encapsulates the council’s main recommendations” made last year. They stemmed from an E. coli 0157:H7 foodborne illness outbreak in late 2012, which was associated with mechanically tenderized beef. The council said in May 2013 that all its members had agreed to label pre-packaged MTB products. Last July, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency began requiring labelling of all MTB products from a federally inspected meat-processing plant. At that time, Laws noted the lack of similar labelling requirements for ground beef at retail “when Health Canada’s own research shows that the risk to consumers from mishandling and cooking ground beef is thousands of times greater than the risk from mechanically tenderized beef. The United States has had this requirement for many years.” The council has been lobbying government to implement labels for safe food handling and cooking of ground beef for the past decade. The new rules, which come into effect Aug. 21, prohibit the sale of MTB unless it is clearly identified as mechanically tenderized on the label. As well, the label must include instructions to cook the product to a minimum internal temperature of 63 C. If it is a steak, it must contain an additional cooking instruction to turn the steak over at least twice during cooking. The regulations provide flexibility to industry to include the term “mechanically tenderized beef” anywhere on the principal display of the label — rather than on the product/ common name — as long as it meets the requirements of legibility and prominence on the principal display panel, Laws said.

Health Canada wrote the regulations “to minimize any regulator y difference with the mandatory MTB labelling efforts underway in the United States,” he added. Mechanical tenderizers use a series of needles or blades to puncture tougher cuts of meat to tenderize them. During that process, the needles can transfer any E. coli bacteria present on the surface of the meat into the inside of the product. Proper cooking kills the bacteria. E. coli is a threat in ground beef because the meat is mixed together, usually at the retail level, again transferring any

bacteria from the surface to the interior. Any roasts and steaks that have E. coli, but aren’t tenderized would only have any bacteria on the exterior and it is killed with less cooking than bacteria within the meat. The tenderizing issue has been around for years but gained a lot of attention during the massive recall of beef products from the former XL plant in Brooks, Alta. At least 18 people in Canada were sickened by contaminated meat from the plant. One of the first indications of problems at the plant came when American inspectors rejected shipments at the border and warned CFIA.

Summer weather here to stay? Issued: Monday, May 26, 2014 · Covering: May 28 – June 4, 2014 Daniel Bezte Co-operator contributor


ue to the long weekend I wasn’t able to put out a forecast for last week, which just happened to be when we finally broke out of our sevenmonth-long cold spell! Now that we’re starting to see some nice warm weather, the big questions on most people’s minds are whether the warm weather will stick around and, if it does, will we see wet conditions accompany the warmth? As for the first question, it looks like the warm weather is here to stay. The weather models are fairly consistent with the general pattern over the next week or two, so confidence in this part of the forecast is fairly high. Regarding moisture, there will be several chances of showers and thunderstorms during this forecast period, but overall, coverage does not look to be that high. That said, it only takes one good thunderstorm to totally soak an area. This forecast period will start off with weak low pressure drifting through central Manitoba. This will likely bring partly cloudy skies along with the chance of the odd shower or thundershower. Tem-

peratures will be nice, with highs expected to be in the low to mid20s. A second and stronger area of low pressure is forecast to develop to our southwest on Thursday. This low will then track along the border on Friday and Saturday and bring warm conditions to end the work week, with highs on Friday and Saturday expected to push into the upper 20s depending on how much sunshine we see. Along with the warm temperatures will come the chance for more showers and thunderstorms. We should see a nice end to the weekend and start to next week as a ridge of high pressure builds in from the northwest. Temperatures will start off a little cool on Sunday and Monday, with highs expected around the 20 C mark. Temperatures will slowly moderate under the strong early summer sunshine and we should see highs in the mid-20s by the middle of next week. Usual temperature range for this period: Highs, 16 to 27 C; lows, 3 to 13 C. Daniel Bezte is a teacher by profession with a BA (Hon.) in geography, specializing in climatology, from the U of W.

Learning how to read weather models Check the models each day and watch which weather features hang around and which don’t By Daniel Bezte

This is the “art” of weather forecasting: looking at the models, then using your understanding and experiences to make changes.



id you feel summer arrive last Thursday? I don’t know about you, but sometime during the day on May 22, it just all of sudden felt that way. It wasn’t until Friday that temperatures soared into the upper 20s, but on Thursday something just felt different. The weather models have been leaning toward a change in our weather pattern for several weeks before this, but starting early last week the models really began being consistent with warm weather moving in, and it finally did! Hopefully some of you have been checking the models and were able to see the pattern turning toward these milder conditions. For those of you who still haven’t checked out the weather models, the website that I have been referring to is This isn’t the only website that gives you access to weather models; I will point out some of the other sites over the next few weeks. In the last article we looked at two weather model plots that are probably the most useful, especially for the beginner. The first plot was the SL Pres/Prec, the Sea Level Pressure and Precipitation map, which shows where surface highs and lows are located and where precipitation is forecast to fall. The second plot we looked at was the 1000 mb map, which shows us the predicted temperatures and dew points near the earth’s surface. There are several other plots or maps you can look at, but for me, the next most useful plot is the 850 mb map. This map shows temperature, pressure (heights),

Temperature, pressure, wind speed and direction at the 850 mb level, about 1,500 metres up.

along with wind speed and direction at the 850 mb level or about 1,500 metres up (4,900 feet). The advantage of this plot compared to the 1000 mb plot is that the temperatures do not reflect the diurnal changes that occur at the surface from early morning to late afternoon. This allows you to see if warm or cold air is moving or advecting into a region. If you look at the 850 mb plot I have included, you’ll see it’s the forecast that was created last Sunday and predicts the conditions for early on Friday, May 30. You can see there is an area of low pressure over central Alberta with high pressure over northern Ontario. This places Manitoba in a southerly flow. If you look closely you can see long white arrows pointing toward Manitoba. These arrows show wind direction and speed — the longer the arrow, the stronger the wind. Looking at the 850 mb temperature forecast, you can see southern regions are expected to see

Pressure contours, wind speed and direction in the upper portion of the troposphere, about 10,000 metres up.

16 to 20 C air. You can get a bit of an idea of how warm the surface temperatures will be by adding 10 to 12 C to these temperatures. So, according to this model run, we should see highs on May 30 around 30 C with what look to be fairly strong southerly winds. Now on to the fourth and final plot, the 300 mb map. This map shows the pressure contours, or heights, along with wind speed and direction. This map looks at the upper portion of the troposphere and is located about 10,000 metres (33,000 feet) up. This is the level where the jet stream is usually located and this map helps to visualize where the jet stream is. Looking at the 300 mb map I have included, for the same time frame as the 850 mb map, you can see the areas with high wind speeds in light blue and green. You can see how the jet stream is coming out of the southwest and cuts through southern Alberta and Saskatchewan before it starts to curve

back toward the southeast over northern Manitoba. This places southern and central Manitoba to the south of the jet stream or on the warm side. Well, that’s about it. With these four different weather model plots you can begin to start creating your own forecasts. The key is to check the weather models at least daily, and watch what weather features are consistently hanging around and which are not. You can then get a feel for how well the weather model is handling the current weather pattern. Then, once you have gotten a feel for this, you can start to build in your own understanding of how weather patterns evolve from your past experiences and tweak what the models show you. This is the “art” of weather forecasting: looking at the weather models, then using your understanding and past experiences to make changes. All of this does take time, but once you start checking the weather models on a regular basis, it should only take five or 10 minutes each day to get a fairly good idea of what weather should be like over the next five to 10 days.

Tips for when soybean seeding runs late Consider boosting your seeding rate to help offset the negative effects of delayed seeding By Allan Dawson co-operator staff


hen seeding soybeans later in the season farmers should consider increasing their seeding rate to bolster yields, a Manitoba Pulse Growers Association production specialist says. Kristen Podolsky said in an interview getting canopy closure by the first week of July is key to getting good soybean yields. “Soybean flowering is triggered by day length. As soon as the days start to shorten on June 21, flowering will be triggered regardless of when they were planted,” she said. “The problem is those planted later will have less vegetative growth. To curb that and maximize our yield potential we may want to increase our seeding rate... to get more of that growth.”

“The key with soybeans is we want canopy closure by the first week of July.” Kristen Podolsky

A closed canopy suppresses weeds and maximizes photosynthesis. A thicker crop encourages more competition, taller plants and possibly higher pods. “We saw this last year for sure,” she said. “Cooler soils, delayed planting, the nodes tend to be closer to the ground so the pods have problems at harvest.” Based on crop insurance data, the optimum time for planting soybeans is May 10 to 20. Normally soil temperatures are averaging at least 10 C at seeding depth by then, although that wasn’t so this year in most areas. “At the fourth week of May we’re looking at 85 or 90 per cent yield potential,” Podolsky said. “And in the first week of June it will go down again.”

Later-seeded soybeans have as long as there’s enough heat during the growing season and frost doesn’t strike early. The ideal soybean plant population ranges from 180,000 to 210,000 per acre, or about 40 plants per square metre, Elmer Kaskiw, Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development’s (MAFRD) farm production adviser at Minnedosa said May 21 during a webinar. However, research has shown fields cutting the population in half reduces yields by just 10 to 20 per cent. Soybeans will compensate by branching out producing more pods per branch and more seeds per pod. Seeding rates also need to take

into account seed germination and potential seed injury. Eighty per cent of the soybean seed sown with a planter survives on average, versus a 71 per cent survival rate using an air drill, Terry Buss, MAFRD’s farm production adviser at Beausejour said during a webinar May 22. Some planters achieve 90 per cent seed survival, he said. Fertility is critical to soybean yield. Soybeans need 150 to 200 pounds of nitrogen per acre to produce a 30-bushel crop, Kaskiw said. Some nitrogen will already be in the soil, while the soybean plant itself can make the rest, but only if a particular bacterium is in the

soil. That’s why inoculating soybean seed is critical. “We definitely recommend double inoculating,” Kaskiw said. “We feel it’s cheap insurance.” Seed treatments are important for warding off seedling diseases and insects. Bayer’s new Fluency agent has replaced talc because it reduces the dust from neonicotinoid seed insecticides linked to bee mortality. Kaskiw stressed adding the right amount and mixing it with the seed slowly. “More is not better,” he said. “You shouldn’t have any application problems if you follow that procedure.” See SOYBEANS on page 18 »

SOYBEANS Continued from page 17

Soybeans require 30 to 40 pounds of phosphorus per acre, ideally applied the year before. At seeding it should be side banded or placed an inch below the seed to avoid seed damage. Soybeans require 30 to 60 pounds of potash per acre. Clay loam soils often have enough, but sandy soils can often be deficient. Soybeans also need 20 pounds of sulphur per acre.

competitors, especially early in the growing, so early weed control is important, Nasir Shaikh, MAFRD’s weed specialist, said in an interview last week. Most soybeans are Roundup Ready, with glyphosate being the main herbicide used. However, Authority has just been registered for soybeans, providing a new residual weed control option and tool to delay the onset of glyphosate-tolerant weeds. (See story on this page.) Soybeans planted in stony fields should be “rolled” to push stones into the soil, which makes harvesting easier, Kaskiw said. Rolling wet soils can cause compaction. Rolling as the crop emerges or at the first trifoliate stage can break plants. Kaskiw recommended rolling at the third trifoliate stage during the afternoon, when it’s warmer and the plants are more pliable. Farmers should periodically check plants during the operation to ensure plants aren’t being heavily damaged.

It’s recommended soybeans be rolled during the first trifoliate stage.

Authority herbicides now registered for soybeans in Western Canada When tank mixed with glyphosate soybean growers can get immediate and residual weed control and delay glyphosate-resistant weeds By Allan Dawson CO-OPERATOR STAFF


uthority herbicides are now registered for conventional and Roundup Ready soybeans, giving Manitoba farmers the option for residual weed control and another tool to delay the onset of glyphosate-tolerant weeds, including kochia. Authority (sulfentrazone) can be tank mixed with glyphosate and applied pre-plant surface or pre-emergent surface to control kochia, lamb’s quarters, red root pigweed and wild buckwheat. Author ity Charge (cafentra zo n e a n d sulfentrazone) should be tank mixed with glyphosate and applied pre-plant surface. Both products were already registered for use in chickpea, field pea, flax and sunflower. “This is a timely registration for soybean growers in the Prairies with the identification of glyphosate-resistant kochia in the Red River Valley region of Manitoba and other soybean-growing areas,” Nasir Shaikh, Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development’s (MAFRD) weed specialist, said in a news release issued by FMC Canada. “Authority is a strong kochia product so growers can use it to help prevent kochia from spreading.” Using Authority can reduce the number of glyphosate applications in a single season, which can delay the development of glyphosate-resistant weeds. Authority controls a number of smallseeded, broadleaf “flushing” weeds that germinate in the top inch of soil, Brad Ewankiw, a Winnipeg-based FMC Canada account manager, said in an interview May 22. “What we want is for growers to spray the product on the surface of the soil and not incorporate it because we don’t want to dilute it to more than within that inch,” he said. “It has to be in a soil solution for those emerging weed seeds to take it up in their

roots. The small-seeded weeds need a rainfall to get germinated, we need a rainfall to be activated — those things happen at the same time. The product is taken up by weeds as they are germinating and are controlled before they emerge.” Tank mixing with glyphosate controls many of the weeds already emerged at the time of application. For years, weed scientists have urged farmers to rotate herbicides to delay the development of herbicide-tolerant weeds, but most agree applying a tank mix with different modes of action is even better. Glyphosate-tolerant weeds are expanding in the United States. “We’re confident the use of products like Authority in Roundup Ready soybeans, and other modes of action in other Roundup Ready crops, can really help to delay the onset of those resistant weeds coming into Canada,” Ewankiw said. “Let’s be proactive and not reactive. I think if you asked any grower in the U.S. if they could go back and be proactive they would because it is causing a lot of problems for them now.” Using Authority will provide six to eight weeks of weed control, depending on the species, which could mean one or two fewer passes with glyphosate, he added. “Those are huge cost and time savings for growers who are already struggling to get everything done,” Ewankiw said. Authority costs $13 to $19 an acre, depending on the rate, which is affected by the soil type, pH and weed spectrum. “If we can skip an in-crop application of glyphosate you’re almost even on the cost side,” he said. “And the benefits of utilizing a new mode of action and the yield benefits of keeping the crop clean early... are going to turn this into a much better economic situation than breaking even.”

New tolerances for ergot, sclerotinia and fusarium The updates take effect as of Aug. 1 in Western Canada CGC release


pdated tolerances for ergot and sclerotinia for most classes of wheat take effect in Eastern Canada on July 1, 2014, and in Western Canada Aug. 1, 2014. As well, new tolerances for fusarium-damaged kernels take effect for barley, Canada Eastern/Western Food. The grade schedule for oats, Canada Eastern will be updated to be a closer match to that of oats, Canada Western. These changes are based on recommendations made to the Canadian Grain Commission by the Western Standards Committee and the Eastern Standards Committee at their meetings in April. “These grading changes are not only uniform between Eastern and Western Canada, they also ensure Canada’s grain continues to uphold

its reputation for quality and safety,” said chief commissioner Elwin Hermanson in a release.

The changes include:

• A tolerance of 0.5 per cent for fusarium damage in barley, Canadian Eastern (CE)/ Canadian Western (CW ) Food. • Updated tolerances of 0.04 per cent ergot and 0.04 per cent sclerotinia for all grades except feed in the following classes of wheat, CW: Red Spring, Hard White Spring, Red Winter, Soft White Spring, Extra Strong, Prairie Spring Red, Prairie Spring White. • Updated tolerances of 0.04 per cent ergot and 0.04 per cent sclerotinia for all grades except feed in the following classes of wheat, CE: Red, Red Spring, Hard

Red Winter, Hard White Spring, Soft Red Winter, Soft White Spring, Hard White Winter, White Winter. • Updated tolerances of 0.02 per cent ergot and 0.02 per cent sclerotinia for No. 1 and No. 2 wheat, CW Amber durum and No. 1 and No. 2 wheat, CE Amber durum. • Updated tolerances of 0.04 per cent ergot and 0.04 per cent sclerotinia for No. 3 and No. 4 wheat, CW Amber durum and No. 3 wheat, CE Amber durum. • Currently, the ergot tolerance for Canadian wheat varies depending on the grade and class of wheat. Most classes have an ergot tolerance of 0.01 per cent for No. 1 and 0.02 per cent for No. 2, while Extra Strong, Prairie Spring White and Prairie Spring Red have an ergot tolerance of 0.03 per


cent for No. 1 and 0.06 per cent for No. 2. Although the new tolerances are wider for many classes, they are marginally tighter than Codex Alimentarius standards (international standards related to food). This means that more wheat may be eligible for delivery into higher grades without compromising safety. • Revised grade schedule for oats, CE to bring CE and CW grade schedules closer together.

Late corn planting sees more bees flying


Keeping bees at bay when it comes to corn planting isn’t always possible, but good communication goes a long way By Shannon VanRaes CO-OPERATOR STAFF


anitoba corn growers and beekeepers have been meeting to talk about how to communicate better for the benefit of bees. The Manitoba Corn Growers Association invited members of the Manitoba Beekeeper’s Association to a spring board meeting, to discuss how to best protect honeybees from the pesticides used to coat corn seeds. “Both sides need to be aware that it’s not just corn growers who have to adjust... there are lots of things that beekeepers can do as well to keep their bees safer — such as feed them in the hive early on when this is happening, because (the seed coating) is a pesticide,” said Theresa Bergsma, general manager of the Manitoba Corn Growers Association. “It is about communication, ‘I’m gonna start planting, so you have your bees contained’... there are certain times of the year that it is best to keep your bees at home.” But Allan Campbell, president of the Manitoba Beekeepers’ Association, takes issue with the notion that honey producers should contain their bees during corn planting. “That is not at all realistic, bees are not something you can cage or can, they’re out there flying. That’s kind of an irresponsible way of looking at things really,” he said. However, lessening the chance bees will be exposed to treated corn seeds can be done. “Ideally you would keep your bees away from areas where corn is being planted, but that’s not always possible,” Campbell said. “One of the things that corn growers can really do, is to make sure they clean up any spilled seed, oftentimes when they are unloading a truck or loading a seeder, they’ll spill a pile of seeds, which is attractive to bees and it’s got the coating right on it. So making sure things are covered and not laying around would sure go a long ways.” Apiarist Jim Campbell said bees are hungry when they emerge in the spring and if food isn’t readily available, they may mistake some forms of dust for pollen, including the dust that comes off of treated corn as it is being planted. “They’re looking for pollen so they’ll

“It’s just a case of let’s try to see what we can do to get it in the ground as quick as possible and as safely as possible, so the bees aren’t as affected, and I think that’s where the focus is.”


even pick up dust from leaves and stuff like that. There’s no food value, but they find that out when they’re back at the hive,” he said. Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency began a detailed look at bee deaths in 2012 and found that 70 per cent of dead bee samples submitted to them contained pesticide residue from coated seed treatments on corn and soybeans. In 2013, that percentage rose to 75 per cent. Although the largest impact has been in corn- and soybean-growing regions of Ontario, four beekeepers in Manitoba reported bee deaths they believed to be linked to the seed coating used on corn

in 2013. At least two of those cases were confirmed. Bergsma expects the number of reports of pesticide-related bee mortality will increase in the coming years, but said that doesn’t necessarily mean an increase in the actual number of bee deaths related to seed coatings. “We’re not surprised if we see that number rise, because as everybody becomes more aware of it, you’re going to get more reported cases, that’s just the way it is,” she said. “So I think we just all need to work together to try to keep it as minimal as we can and just remember that all these tools need to be used in the best and safest fashion they can be.” A late spring has delayed corn planting in most areas of the province this year, meaning that more bees will be out of the hives and foraging as seeds are being planted. However, changes to lubricants used in seed drills are helping to minimize the amount of dust coming off of coated corn seeds, which should reduce contact. “If it’s meant to kill bugs, it’s going to kill bees,” Bergsma said. “It’s just a case of let’s try to see what we can do to get it in the ground as quick as possible and as safely as possible, so the bees aren’t as affected.”

Pesticides are one of many factors contributing to declining bee health in North America, a Monsanto bee researcher told the Senate agriculture committee last month. Jerry Hayes, an official with Beeologics, a division of Monsanto, said research he conducted while he was chief of the apiary section of Florida’s Agriculture Department, identified mites and other parasites as key factors in poor bee health. Other factors include viruses, inadequate nutrition and pesticides, including the ones placed in hives. Hayes compared the varroa mite to “a parasitic rat on us sucking our blood, vectoring viruses, causing all sorts of problems for us. It does the same thing with our honeybees.” Hayes said bees can’t find enough to eat when there are hundreds or even thousands of hives in the same area. “There are not enough natural flowers to provide complete nutrition to these colonies.” Attempts to provide feed for bees have failed because no one has developed nutritionally complete diets for them. Pesticides can impact on bee populations “if they’re improperly applied or used,” he said, but field pesticides are a minor problem compared to miticides applied by beekeepers to control mites. “All our studies and analysis show that most of the chemical residues in honeybee colonies are from these miticides, which are the only available control for the mites.” He said Beeologics has been using Israeli technology called RNA to trigger a genetic defence in bees against mites, he added. Coral Sproule, and National Farmers Union second vice-president Michael Lynch-Staunton, both Lanark County farmers, urged senators to recommend a five-year moratorium on neonic fertilizers beginning next spring to curb high levels of bee deaths in Ontario and Quebec. “During the moratorium, we would like to have third-party, publicly funded research, as needed, to assess whether or not there is yield benefit to further develop and promote alternatives, including non-chemical alternatives, and to monitor pollinator populations and residual neonics in water and soil,” she said. She said the Ontario Agriculture Ministry thinks that neonics are only required on 10 to 30 per cent of the Ontario crops. The introduction of neonics “has led to a move away from integrated pest management. Some of the other alternative practices that could be used to maintain less pests in the fields are not being used because of the dependency on these seed treatments.”

crop report

Seeding progress variable across the province Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives GO Teams & Crops Knowledge Centre crop report for May 26, 2014 Weekly Provincial Summary

Favourable weather conditions prior to the weekend’s precipitation allowed for good seeding progress. Seeding is estimated to be 25 to 30 per cent complete in the Southw e s t Re g i o n , 2 5 p e r c e n t complete in the Northwest Region, 60 per cent complete in the Central Region, 50 per cent complete in the Eastern Region and 40 per cent complete in the Interlake Region. There are areas where seeding progress is not as advanced. Producers are modifying their initial seeding plans to account for field availability and seeding date. Heavy precipitation in some areas will further delay seeding. The earliest-seeded crops, including cereals, canola and corn, are emerging. Pa s t u re a n d h a y g row t h improved with last week’s warm temperatures.

being primarily field peas, spring wheat and barley. Canola seeding just started and is estimated to be less than 10 per cent complete. Some producers are considering alternative canola-seeding techniques, such as broadcasting, on some excessively wet fields. Pre- and post-seeding burn-off herbicide applications are now taking place. So m e e a r l y- s e e d e d c e re a l crops are starting to emerge. Winter wheat and fall r ye crops benefited from the sun and warm temperatures. Pastures and alfalfa fields have finally begun to regrow with the warmer temperatures. Cattle are being moved to pasture as feed supplies are becoming low. Winterkill in alfalfa is becoming more apparent with late second-cut fields the most impacted. A significant amount of pasture and hay land continues to be under water.

Southwest Region

Northwest Region

Rainfall amounts varied with several areas reporting five to 10 mm. However, on the weekend heavy rainfall amounts of 25 to 40 mm were reported in areas north of Boissevain and south of Elgin, and through the Oak Lake and Killarney areas. Seeding progress is variable with crops planted to date

R a i n s h ow e r s a n d t h u n d e r s t o r m s h i n d e re d s e e d ing progress. Drying winds picked up over the weekend and temperatures warmed up significantly allowing producers to resume seeding operations in the rest of the region. Approximately 40 per cent of the wheat crop and 10 per cent of the canola crop are seeded.

The most seeding progress was made in the Swan Valley and Roblin areas where some producers are finished seeding wheat. Less than five per cent of the soybean and field corn acres are planted. Seeding conditions are generally not ideal with wet fields throughout the region. Perennial and annual weed growth, as well as volunteer crop growth, improved over the past week. Substantial rain over the past week kept pastures and hay fields significantly wet. Forage growth is relatively slow; however, the recent warmer temperatures increased development.

Central Region

Rainfall amounts over the weekend were extremely variable across the Central Region with reports ranging from 10 to 75 mm. Hail was reported in the Austin and Plumas areas. In areas of highest rainfall, there is standing water and producers are draining fields. The most advanced areas of the region are finished seeding cereals. Rain on Saturday and Sunday stopped seeding operations and in some areas it will take a few days of drying to resume seeding. In the southern and eastern areas of the region, three or four good days would result in seeding completion. Wet conditions in the

northwest part of the region have made seeding a struggle. Very little pre-seed burn-off has been done due to limited weed growth prior to seeding and desire to not delay seeding. Pre-emergent applications are being made where possible. Wild oats, volunteer cereals, winter annuals and wild buckwheat are emerging. In canola, spraying of volunteer cereals and wild oats has started. Winter wheat fields continue to be terminated due to winterkill. In some cases, producers are reconsidering reseeding as a fair winter wheat crop may be better than a late-seeded spring crop. High temperatures over the weekend resulted in significant growth in hay land and pastures. Early reports indicate alfalfa winterkill is not widespread although some winterkill did occur. Some hay land and pastures are impacted by wet conditions.

Eastern Region

Cumulative rainfall amounts varied from 15 to 80 mm. Se e d i n g p r o g re s s v a r i e s widely, but it is estimated seeding is 50 per cent complete in the region. Approximately four to five more good s e e d i n g d a y s a re n e e d e d . Many producers are focusing on planting corn, soy-

beans and canola acres, while the cereals are being left until last. Producers in heavier rainfall areas, including Beausejour and southeast parts of the region, continue to have seeding operations stalled by excess moisture. Poor stands of winter wheat a re b e i n g t e r m i n a t e d a n d reseeded to canola or soybeans. There are a few reports of fields that have significant wireworm damage, particularly those direct seeded into terminated hay stands. Hay and pasture conditions are rated as good to poor. Grass growth is slow with standing water in many pastures.

Interlake Region

Precipitation amounts throughout the week range anywhere from 20 to 60 mm. Most acres have become too wet to seed in parts of the Interlake. Se e d i n g p ro g re s s i n t h e Interlake Region is approximately 40 per cent complete. Field selection for seeding is quite limited as soil conditions have stayed cool and wet for many parts of the region. The earliest-seeded spring wheat and other cereals, as well as flax, canola, corn and peas, are emerging. Cattle are being moved to pastures. Rains are improving grass growth.

The Manitoba Co-operator | May 29, 2014


Municipal record keeper and grave finder honoured Jack Mavins of Anola is one of five Manitobans to receive the Lieutenant-Governor’s Award for long and meritorious service in the preservation and promotion of provincial history By Lorraine Stevenson co-operator staff / Dugald


ack Mavins’ phone rang off the hook after a city newspaper story awhile back described his knack for finding unmarked graves. Callers wanted his help and he was happy to oblige. Until then, the Anola senior said he’d been a bit reluctant to say too much about his grave “dowsing” or “witching” as some call it. Some don’t like this kind of talk, says Mavins, 82. Plus, he can’t explain why the two thin welding rods he carries cross each each other when he steps over a site where a body is buried, “I just know it works,” he said. It was at the Manitoba Genealogy Society (MGS) back in the 1980s that he first heard about the ancient practice, which is also called divining, often used to find water. “I came home and got a couple of welding rods and it worked over top of my wife so I said, ‘well, it works live, so let’s go to the cemetery and see if it works on someone dead.’” The retired engineer doesn’t think there’s anything spooky or unusual about it at all. He’s heard it just has something to do with the body’s magnetism. “Our two boys can do it. My wife and our daughter can’t. I have no answer for it,” he says.

Honed skills

But his method has found lots of bodies. He honed the skill at the Millbrook Cemetery, among the oldest in Manitoba and one of RM of Springfield’s four municipal cemeteries. It worked so well, he eventually helped the custodian “transcribe” the entire site, in which unmarked sites were matched to written cemetery records. “There were maybe around 50,” he estimates. He eventually helped map out Springfield’s other three cemeteries, plus numerous smaller ones in churchyards and on private properties. He’s given talks at genealogy gatherings and taught others how to do it too. He doesn’t do much grave dowsing lately — “I can’t walk the distances,” he says — but has been called in to check out numerous small and private sites, including family farms where burials are known to have taken place. In one case, a family knew at least five people were buried in a particular site. He found them all, and the family eventually determined their identities too. “There’s lots of little family plots around,” he says.

Local history enthusiast

This kind of digging into the past is just one way Mavins has helped set historical records straight. A lifelong local history enthusiast, he has more recently become as intrigued about what’s to be discovered in boxes containing dusty old records. Since 2006, he’s been the volunteer head of Springfield Municipal Archives, housed in the former Dugald Costume Museum, “a progression,” he says, of all

his other interests in local history that have included a 30-year stint as treasurer with the Anola District Museum. Mavins was one of five Manitobans p re s e n t e d t h i s m o n t h w i t h t h e Lieutenant-Governor’s Award for long and meritorious service to preserve and promotion of the province’s rich history and heritage. The award was established in 2010 and is presented annually in consultation with the Manitoba Historical Society (MHS). Most days you can now find Mavins, and his wife, Yvonne, at the neat-as-a-pin Springfield Municipal Archives, inside the former Dugald Costume Museum, and one of just eight accredited facilities in the province. The couple has spent countless hours going through boxes and crates, carefully sorting, filing and cataloguing everything from the RM’s cancelled cheques of yesteryear, to old newspaper articles and photos dating back decades.

Joint effort

Mavins says the award belongs to his wife too as she is just as involved in the archival work. A map in the archives, showing how the RM’s boundaries have changed over the years was drawn by her after careful research. “She spent a whole year trying to

determine the size of Springfield,” he says. The Mavins say their love of history stems from love of their community. It’s important to keep paying attention to both. “We are trying that with our archives,” says Jack. “We have (documentation of) 40 one-room schoolhouses, and now we’re doing the churches,” he said. “We had all kinds of clubs... baseball, hockey, rifle clubs, 4-H, the curling, all this stuff was our community at that time. It changes but it was there. “I just feel that you have to know what went on, so you don’t screw things up today,” he adds. “If you know why and what happened before you, you may understand yourself better.” Lt.-Gov. Philip S. Lee presented awards to five Manitobans this month. The Lieutenant-Governor’s Award for

Cream of Dandelion Soup This recipe was one of the more challenging to create because dandelion greens impart a slightly bitter taste to foods, says Carkner. The sweetness of the maple syrup and the saltiness of the bacon helps. 2 lbs. (about 6 cups) young dandelion greens, trimmed and washed 1 tbsp. butter or olive oil 2 large leeks, white and light parts only, cleaned and sliced 1 carrot, peeled and diced 12 rashers of bacon (usually a pack) sliced against the grain, 1/2 inch wide 4 c. vegetable stock 2-1/2 c. milk 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard (optional) 2 tbsp. maple syrup 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar Dash salt and pepper to taste Handful of dandelion flower petals for garnish

Blanch the greens in salted, boiling water for one minute. Cool in ice water, then drain and chop. Set aside. On medium-high heat, cook the bacon. Stir constantly, scraping the bottom of the pot. When the bacon is brown and crispy, remove with tongs to a bowl or plate lined with paper towel. Set aside. Using the bacon fat and the same pot on medium-high heat, add greens, carrot and leeks. Cook, stirring often, for 15 minutes. Add stock and simmer for about 15 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and whisk in milk; cook stirring frequently until slightly thickened. Purée this mixture using a tightly covered blender, or a hand blender, until smooth, taking care with the hot liquid. Add the puréed soup back to the pot and return to the element on medium-high heat. Bring the soup back to a boil, whisking constantly. This will thicken it slightly. Add the bacon (reserving some for garnish), maple syrup and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper, and add Dijon mustard if you like. Serve in bowls and sparsely garnish with flower petals.

ndrew Jackson swung his pickup truck into the usual parking spot in front of the café and shut off the engine. Stepping out into the bright morning sunshine he caught the brim of his hat on the door frame of the truck, knocking it off of his head and back into the truck. Twisting around quickly to grab the hat with his left hand he lost his balance and reached for the door handle with his right hand to steady himself, but missed. Now just trying to stay upright, he used his flailing arms to try to maintain his balance, but lost his grip on the hat which sailed upwards through the air and landed perfectly on the roof of the pickup. “I hope no one saw that,” he muttered to himself as he stepped on the running board and reached up to retrieve the hat. He slammed the door shut and turned to go inside and sure enough, there were Grant Toews and Peter Gosselin laughing uproariously at him through the window. He rolled his eyes, put on his hat and took a deep bow and then headed inside. By the time Andrew got to the table Grant and Peter had resumed the conversation that his misadventure outside had interrupted. “She tried three times,” Grant was saying. “The first two times, when she got to the parallel parking test she knocked over two of the pylons. The third time the tester made her do the parallel parking first and she knocked over three of the pylons so he just flunked her on the spot. She was furious because he wouldn’t let her take the rest of the test. It took me forever to get her to understand that there was no point in taking the rest of the test if she had already flunked the parallel parking.” Andrew poured cream into the coffee he had picked up at the counter. “I take it Kendra is having trouble getting her licence?” he said. Grant heaved a sigh. “I’m talking about my mother,” he said. “Your mother?” Andrew was puzzled. “I thought your mother had a licence. Doesn’t she drive the grain truck for you every fall?”



“She did,” said Grant. “But I guess that’s over now. Since she had that little accident.” “I hadn’t heard,” said Andrew. “She took out the stop sign at Albertson’s corner,” said Grant. “In January. She said she couldn’t see anything because it was so foggy. Except that it wasn’t foggy. She had just forgotten to turn on the defrost.” “Huh,” said Andrew. “I wondered where that sign went. I figured the Friesen boys probably ran away with it.” “Nope, my mother ran over it,” said Grant. “So MPIC made her take her driving test and she failed three times in a row. And now she’s kind of given up. I mean she is 83 years old. If I didn’t need her to drive the grain truck I probably

would have suggested she give up her licence five years ago. Not that she ever goes anywhere except to town.” “My old man used to drive to town for coffee every day till he was 96,” said Peter. “He was so blind in the end that he had to stop at the highway and open his windows to see if he could hear anyone coming.” “Yikes,” said Andrew. “Good thing he wasn’t deaf.” “Oh, he was pretty deaf too,” said Peter. “But he said he could feel the vibrations in his head if there was a vehicle coming.” “Yes, well, safety first,” said Grant. “My mother always used the braille method for parallel parking,” said Andrew. “If she’d had to take a test she would never have gotten a licence at all.” “So who’s going to drive your grain truck this year then Grant?” Peter wanted know. “Kendra?” “What makes you think I’ll even need anyone to drive a grain truck? I haven’t even got the seed in the ground yet,” said Grant. “Good point.” Peter looked at Andrew. “That’s what I like about Grant. He’s always looking on the bright side.” “I’m not sure what part of that you’re seeing as the bright side,” said Andrew. “One doesn’t usually look at not getting a crop in as a silver lining.” “It’s all in your perspective,” said Peter. “My perspective is that you’re an idiot,” said Grant. “Which is too bad because if you weren’t, I’d hire you to drive my grain truck.” “Dang it,” said Peter. “I didn’t realize this was a job interview. What if I work for free?” “You’re hired,” said Grant. “Good,” said Peter. “Now all I need is a licence.” “You can borrow mine,” said Andrew. Grant raised his coffee cup. “Here’s to good friends,” he said. “I only wish I had some.”

Gift idea for the cooks in your life By Pat Gerbrandt FREELANCE CONTRIBUTOR

H What to do with small fabric remnants




hese little totes can be made with print suitable for anyone’s taste. Friends use them as cosmetic bags or key holders carried in their purses, and kids like them for trinkets. You will need a small amount of light fabric, iron-on interfacing, and a zipper. The bag in the photo was made from a 7x14-inch (18x33-cm) cotton remnant. Make them any size you like ensuring the length is twice that of the width. The zipper should measure about 3/4 inch (1.5 mm) less than the narrow width. If you have a longer zipper it can be cut — first by hand stitching across the teeth close to where the cut will be made — to the measure you need. Cut one piece of fabric and one piece of iron-on interfacing; apply with hot iron to wrong side of fabric. With zipper foot, attach zipper to the shorter ends. Mark centre and fold bag as shown. Be sure to have the zipper partly open; stitch across top and bottom. Mitre the corners by stitching approx. one inch across from top to side. Trim off excess and zigzag raw edges. (Bottom left bag shows the finished edges.) Turn right side out. There’s your bag!

Eva Krawchuk writes from Winnipeg

ere’s a handy gift for any cook! Use a ready-made apron or stitch up a simple one of sturdy cotton or cottonblend fabric, either in a plain colour or with a muted or small-scale pattern. I used medium-weight sport cotton to make this apron for my mother when her grandchildren were still in school. I chose Dylon™ fabric paint because the painted fabric stays soft and has withstood many washings. One small pot (25 ml) was enough for more than two-dozen handprints. Text can be added by using a squeeze bottle to apply paint, or with a permanent fabric marker pen. The text could be embroidered over. Supplies: • Apron, either ready made or home sewn • A piece of similar fabric for test prints • Fabric paint (permanent and washable) • Soft, small paintbrush • Plastic to protect work surface • Permanent fabric paint pen or squeeze bottle (optional) • Embroidery cotton and embroidery needles (optional) Method: Wash, rinse and dry your apron to prepare the fabric for best paint absorption. Plan before opening the paint pot! Have fun designing your own version. Spread plastic on a flat, even work surface and lay apron and test fabrics on it, right side up. Use the paintbrush to apply a light coat of paint on palm of hand, then print onto the test fab-


ric, pressing down only enough to leave a pleasing print. Once you have determined how much paint you need to use, “hand paint” your apron. Allow paint to dry. Cover painted sections with a clean cloth and press one to two minutes, using a hot iron, to fix the paint. Wash the apron after fixing. NOTE: If your paint directions differ, make sure you follow the instructions for the type of paint you use. Pat Gerbrandt writes from Grunthal, Manitoba

Want to learn more about birds?

Consider attending a birding workshop — useful for the beginner or more experienced birdwatcher By Donna Gamache Freelance contributor


f you’re interested in birds and birdwatching, even if it’s just in your backyard, but are unsure about what species you see, consider attending a birding workshop. Recently, my husband and I attended one at the St. Leon Interpretive Centre, with Dr. Christian Artuso as the presenter. With approximately 300 breeding species of birds in Manitoba, there is always something to learn. Twenty-five people had signed up, with others having to be turned away. Some attendees classed themselves as beginners, or backyard birders only, while others were more experienced, but even the most knowledgeable felt that they had learned something useful. Dr. Artuso is the program manager for Bird Studies Canada and is presently co-ordinating the Manitoba Breeding Bird Atlas ( He is also an excellent bird photographer and used his numerous photos to help outline ways in which birdwatchers can improve their observation skills. First, participants studied several photos of “small brown birds” in the thrush family to notice what differences to look for, such as eye rings, speckling, stripes and beak size, even when colours are similar. For instance, female purple finches can be distinguished from female house finches by lighter-coloured stripes near the eyes. Colour is what casual birders probably look for first, such as the yellow patches on the rump, crown and wings of a yellow-rumped (or myrtle) warbler, the red on a red-winged blackbird or the bright rosy bib on the rose-breasted grosbeak.

But colour can also be deceiving since the females and juveniles are usually much duller, sometimes totally different. Even the season can cause variations, with birds generally much brighter in spring and early summer. Size, of course, is another important aspect to consider when trying to identify a bird, but another important one is shape. As we studied a poster with numerous black silhouettes, we soon realized that, even without knowing the bird’s size, we could often identify a bird by its shape. Kingfishers, hummingbirds, swallows and mourning doves, for example, could be determined even without seeing their colour or size. Silhouettes of birds flying could also be useful. Dr. Artuso suggested we use bird songs as a means of identification. Often when one is out walking, it is the song that catches one’s attention first. The cheery trill of a western meadowlark, for example, the “cheer-up, cheer-up” of a robin, or the distinctive call of the killdeer may be what we first notice in spring. Later, in summer, as we walk through a forest or park, melodious singing from high in a treetop will alert an experienced birder to a red-eyed vireo, even if the bird is not visible. The St. Leon workshop included a short walk along the nearby lake, with binoculars in hand. Unfortunately the weather was cold, with rain threatening, but we did see flickers, song sparrows, ducks and a few other birds before retreating to the interpretive centre. Anyone who is serious about birding will probably want to purchase a field guide of some sort. Don’t choose a guide that is too heavy, if you want to carry it with you. Peterson Field Guides are popular, as well as Sibley Guides and

TOP: Yellow-rumped warbler. ABOVE: Birders hoping to identify different species.  PHOTOS: DONNA GAMACHE

National Geographic Guides. Range maps for each bird are helpful in order to ascertain that a certain bird is actually found in a particular region. In spring and early summer many migrating birds stop here briefly before continuing on farther north. Serious birders will want a pair of binoculars, as well. Websites such as the Cornell Lab of Ornithology can help with bird identification. See http://www.allaboutbirds. org/guide/search or the Audubon site at There are also Apps to download, some for free and some for a fee. One meeting spot for birders who live near Winnipeg is Fort Whyte, where

6:30 a.m. walks are offered Wednesdays and Fridays in May. Check out http:// for their other activities. Oak Hammock Marsh, Delta Marsh and Whitewater Lake are other spots where birders frequently gather, and most willingly help a newcomer identify various species. Nature Manitoba often lists birding workshops and bird outings at Many of these events take place in Winnipeg but occasionally rural locations are used. We were certainly happy we’d attended the one held at St. Leon. Donna Gamache writes from MacGregor, Manitoba

Attractive foliage and beautiful blossoms Train a mandevilla on a trellis or grow in a hanging basket By Albert Parsons Freelance contributor


This large container displayed in a garden centre contains two mandevilla plants, one with red blooms and the other with white ones.   PHOTO: ALBERT PARSONS

s we prepare for another gardening season why not try a tropical vine? They are particularly useful in containers, and these features of the landscape are usually the last to be planted and placed in outdoor living spaces. Because it has both attractive foliage and beautiful flowers, mandevilla is a prime candidate to add such an accent to the garden. The mandevilla is a tropical shrub — or a woody vine — that must either be moved indoors for the winter or treated as an annual in our climate. It will not perform well in cool temperatures so keep it indoors until temperatures are reliably warm and move it indoors in the fall before any freezing temperatures occur. Because mandevilla is a woody vine, it is best trained on a trellis or support of some kind, although it can be used as a hanging basket specimen. If it is grown in a hanging basket it will have the tendency to climb upwards, so will need a bit of training to force it to grow in a pendulous fashion. Pinching will create a

bushier plant, so remove about two cm from the tips of each of the stems to promote new growth and a fuller plant. Do this early in the season so that you are not pinching off flower buds. Many garden centres sell mandevillas as large plants that are often in gallon-size pots, so even if the plant is treated as an annual, it will put on good growth in just one growing season. The larger the plant is when you buy it, the earlier and more prolifically it will bloom. The dark-green, oval leaves are shiny — the foliage is in itself quite attractive. Mandevillas are sensitive to their water requirements; if leaves turn yellow, the plant is either getting too much water or not enough. Allow the soil surface to dry out a bit before watering but do not let the soil dry out completely; keep the root ball moist The plant should be fertilized regularly during the growing season, as they are heavy feeders, particularly when they are in bloom. Supplying a steady supply of nutrients will encourage more bloom as well as more robust foliage. A fertilizer with a high second number (phosphorus) will encourage more bloom. A man-

devilla is best planted in a medium that has lots of organic matter. I add some compost to a soilless mix and ensure that the pot has drainage holes and the soil itself drains well. The blooms are brilliantly coloured, trumpet shaped, and come in red, pink, white or yellow, often with yellow throats. Good light will ensure that the plants bloom profusely. They like sun but prefer relief from hot, mid-afternoon sun. Mandevillas should not be overpotted; being slightly root bound seems to promote more bloom. If you wish to overwinter your plant, bring it indoors well before frost threatens and cut the plant back by at least a third. Check carefully for lurking insect pests and take precautionary measures to prevent an infestation. Give it good light — in front of a sunny window is ideal — but do not apply fertilizer during the winter. Whether you treat it as an annual or keep it from year to year, you will be pleased with the exotic touch this tropical vine will add to your outdoor landscape.
