Raise your Pulse with N and P. DON’T TURN YOUR BACK

To the Editor:

A couple of weeks ago, the Stephen
Harper government gave multi-
national seed companies more
power and rights. These new rights
are enshrined inside the legislation.

At the same time, the Harper gov-
ernment allowed farmers a narrowly
defined privilege to replant some of
their seeds. But this privilege is not
enshrined — it can be limited or
withdrawn by regulations, which
can be created by the minister at
any time he sees fit.

So, seed companies get more rights.
Farmers get a temporary privilege,
and another knife in the back from
the Harper government.

AcuresJtyToomLuear? JTL Industries is excited to
add to our line of grain bins our

Call for introductory pricing!

We are very excited about our next step in the bin market!

With the recent increases to our production capabilities, we need our marketing chapter to expand as well. Finding staging areas
across the prairies to be used as distribution points is also a priority for us to eliminate some of the logistic issues we have faced
in the past. Our plan since the inception of JTL was to provide farmer designed products at fair pricing as an alternative to
what was traditionally offered in the grain storage market. This concept has been well accepted by you, our customers
and we feel now is the time to spread our wings and shake things up even more! After
discussing different marketing strategies, we felt that offering an opportunity
to the people who have supported us through purchasing our
products may be an awesome way to say thank
you and expand our sales team at the same time!
Just like our products this is a somewhat unique
strategy that we feel will be beneficial for all of us.
We have always said our customers are our best
salesmen so here is your opportunity to
actually get paid for the promoting you do for us!

As a current customer of ours you will be paid a
commission for every sale you bring to our table
between January 1, 2015 and ending on or
before April 30th 2015.

Top customer salesperson for the
year will get a trip for 2 to Mexico!

Interested? Give us a call for details!

Researchers and producers in Ontario experimented with higher nitrogen rates

showed average yields of:

Incorrect swaths are another major
cause of errors.

If the last swath in a field is actually
a half swath and the operator does
not change the swath setting, the
yield monitor system measures the
grain and calculates the bushels per
acre based on a full swath. This
results in half the yield per acre of
what was actually in the field.

Farmers have a variety of options
for solving these problems, but many
of them need to be done during har-
vest, such as checking lag time set-
ting and calibrations and entering
correct swath widths.

For now, we can look at the data
included in the yield file and delete
individual yield points if they are
determined to be inaccurate.

Combine speed is one of the most
valuable attributes to use for clean-
up. Look in the yield file for extremely
low combine speeds or rapid speed

Yield values are most inaccurate in
these two situations.

The good news is that producers do
not have to clean up yield points by
