    Welcome

    September 7, 2017
    Welcome to fieldtalk.ca where you will find timely information on agronomy questions, industry trends and the fit for new technologies on the farm. Fieldtalk.ca provides producers with not only a new source of information on timely crop issues, technology and agronomy trends, but also insight and perspective on decisions that have to be made on the farm every year and in every growing season.

We feel this site will help provide that perspective. The site will be a useful tool especially in-season when we will be posting field pictures and videos of issues being encountered in the field that many producers will be able to relate to.
