Wheat Harvest

By News

July and wheat harvest are both approaching. Harvest does appear slightly earlier this year than most, but the upcoming weather will leave a lot to be determined. Rutherford and Dresden will both be available to receive wheat. However, Rutherford is under construction, with at least one day of planned shutdown for Hydro One to do some work. Please keep in touch with the offices if you plan to harvest, it will help us be ready to receive your wheat. Several fields of wheat missed fungicide applications this year; it’s also a good idea to monitor those fields if harvest is delayed. An early harvest with some wheat drying charges may offset quality discounts due to Fusarium or falling number.

Planting Has Started – Watch for Hours

By News

With planting season underway we will do our best to get you the seed you need. It’s been a slow and wet start, but as things pick up we can try to find or make the seed you need with enough notice. Watch this news section or call the office if you may require seed outside of the normal business hours (7am-5pm). We will have flexible hours based on weather and customer demand.

Seed Pick-Up

It may seem early, but a lot of seed is ready. So if you have an empty wagon or can get your operation ready to take seed. Give us a call to see if your seed is ready. It’s nice to beat the spring rush!

Have you been checking your grain bins?

By Uncategorized

It’s always good to keep an eye on your grain in the bins, but this winter it could be more important. It was a challenging fall to take grain off dry, and there may be wet spots or excessive fines holding the moisture. Also we have not had many opportunities this winter to cool the temperatures inside the bins with the fans. Turn on the fans and check the top for smells or heat. Maybe ship a load or two and get a good look. The earlier you catch spoilage, the easier it is to deal with!

Winter is Busy!

By Uncategorized

Many think that when winter hits we slow down, but we are actually very busy all winter long. We receive beans nearly every day, we ship out export daily and we  process, package, treat and warehouse seed beans. Our warehouses are a beehive!
