2021 crop pics


Recommended Posts

This pan had been damaged at some point and time. It was definitely worn thin though too so it wouldn’t have taken much to damage it. Had my but full lifting it back in there by myself. Got it back up inside the combine after the big wind storm went through. Had a awful gust of wind for a while. Couldn’t even see across the yard at times.   No rain here at all. Could see some clouds building up around us but clear skies here. Unreal how we can’t catch a rain this summer. Sure is getting dry around here. Not much for sloughs left in any of the fields aside from the real big ones and they’ve been shrinking a lot too. C11F82B8-1F4B-451E-A1FE-294BBEC79E50.thumb.jpeg.ea179ea721222a63b3aa4ca9e19d585c.jpeg

Just a short clip of the dust storm tonight. 

We had the same wind here but not dust. A little sideways rain that I'd guess the guage didn't catch. Heard some areas had significant hail with it but none here this time. Crops still look surprisingly green considering how little rain and the heat. Humidity was way up there the last day or so and I saw 90 degrees mid day. Glad the AC was working well in the 2090 as I disked a small patch of summerfallow in the heat. No worries on glyphosate resistant weeds with the disker.

Blowing hard here today again and not the nicest conditions to be outside working in. Seen some pictures of some awfully large hail stones and oddly shaped ones too. Not sure what’s causing that. Was some around red deer too.

Got up for some drone pictures and video over the canola field by my driveway today. My canola was seeded a little later than the neighbours so its still blooming pretty good.

Few screenshots from flying the drone around tonight. Still can’t upload original files for some reason. Pictures from my phone are fine but not the ones transferred from the drone to my phone. wheat, barley, canola, the garden, oats and the neighbors peas across the road. 
 

Still nothing for rain and the crops are turning fast. Thinking another 2 weeks and things will be getting close. I’m not going to rush it though if the hollows are still a bit green. Going to be early enough a guy can wait and maybe try to get a extra bushel or two if the stuff in the hollows fills a little better.

I don't think there is one field in this area that will be an average yield.I run cart tractor for my cousin, he expects 2000 acres of Mustard will all fit in the 8 combine hoppers.

One day his comment was the combine operators could drive the trucks home at quiting time.

Few clouds rolling around earlier today but of course no rain. Water bombers were flying over us when we were down at the river heading to the fire a half a hour north of here. Some larger new fires around Hudson Bay where we go snowmobiling as well. The one fire is about 5 or 6 miles west from my friends friends cabin that we stayed at. West wind today so hopefully they’ve been able to hold it back. 
 

Been around the river a fair bit the last 24 hours. Went down east of home a ways and drove along the river last night past where I’d been before. Was kind of scenic just driving along. This morning my brother came out with his small boat and we put it in just north of home. Sent him out on his own for the first ride to see how it would be. He got to the far side, hit a rock and then we could see the paddles come out. Thought uh oh know he’s in trouble lol. He had shut the motor off quickly and then the pill start locked up when he went to restart it was all. He got it fired up again easily and we took turns going down the river a little ways where there wasn’t as many rocks.  We wanted to go upstream to the forks but chickened out lol. 
 

Crops are still advancing quicker then I’d like. My canola east of home is actually looking not bad but it still needs to fill. If it’ll fill it should make a average crop at least. I don’t know if it has enough moisture left to make it though. Ground is extremely dry now.

Thin spots and burned patches show up so much better from above. I took this today on one of my earliest wheat fields. Sure shows up those two plugged runs as well. Not many sloughs left with water in them except the big ones like this.

Your corn field reminds me of one I saw yesterday. There are not many here. Looks like they cut the outer rounds for silage and what was left looked pretty tall. I should have taken a picture. Maybe next time.

That’s sure a lot greener then ours is. Some spots in ours you could almost combine now. Another week-ten days and things might be starting up here.  Our barley and oats have really burnt up in the heat. Canola is still fairing the best.

Was out scouting for bugs in the canola tonight. Found a few army worms but nothing to crazy. Quite a few aphids or some other small green insect on that summerfallow field. Going to have to keep a eye on that.

been getting closer here aswell to stinkin hot during the day to get anything accomplished i found a bin of 2 yr old wheat heated on me some time in the last yr I took some out last summer and it was fine and now with commodity prices clean out all bins turned out to be around 20% heated but I found a home for it already for not a bad price, not sure why it heated it was only 15.6 moisture 

still got some bins to clean out and the odd job left to do but may try combining peas near the end of the week suppose to cool down a few degrees so hopefully that happens 

other crops are still hanging in aswell surprisingly i looked at my best wheat crop on pea stubble and big heads and the full going into hard dough stage, haven't looked at canola yet hoping to straight cut some but will swath some to I'm sure yet

Turned some canola today to make sure it wasn’t heating. Vitera has a 23$ special on right now. Tempting to haul it in but I keep thinking what will it be come January. 5$ premium over street price almost so they sure want it bad right now. Makes me wonder if they’re expecting it to go up too or if they’re just short that badly and really need it now.  Going to turn some barley bins in the next few days I think and shuffle somE leftover seed around to empty out a few bins. 
 

Im thinking by Friday we will likely be able to spray the wheat and barley if we’re going to. I think that’s our best option this year but we’ll see what Happens I guess. 
 

Took a few pics of the wheat and barley tonight.  Creek is drying up even more now again. Lowest I can remember seeing it. I can’t actually remember a time that it’s quit running but it very likely has at some point and time before.

Soybeans have stayed clean this year.  I think ok putting a residual down pre plant has helped.  If we get rain in August for pod fill the beans will be amazing around here.

I feel for you guys that haven't gotten measurable rain all growing season.

Was cutting a bit of hay in the dried up sloughs this morning. Not too inspiring. Lots of Canada Thistle in patches. So I stopped by the best looking canola for a picture on the way home. Lots of pods there but a ways to go before they fill. At 93 degrees right now and no rain forecast will they even fill? Got that kind of half sunlight today from the smoke in the air.

First measurable rain last night since June. Didn’t have a gauge up but I imagine we had around 4 tenths. Was water laying for a little while last night and the yards still muddy this morning. Nice to settle the dust for a little while anyways.

Will be interesting when they get a fleet of them going in the same field lol. I’m hearing 2-300 acres a day per drone here whether that’s true or not I’m not sure.  Haven’t seen any personally working yet.

Only gets 5 acres per fill but he reloads in 2 minutes it is just the tip of the iceberg in my opinion.
