The Johnston’s Daily Email is a marketing tool used by many of our farm clients. This email includes a bid sheet that we update daily that includes both spot and new crop pricing on each commodity that we trade. The bid sheet is a useful tool but more important than the bid sheet is that we publish all grain trades that are done through the Welwyn, SK and Calgary, AB offices. Posting our trades allows our growers to track what each commodity is trading for in a given freight area on a daily basis.

If we plan on announcing a sale on one of the retail products that we sell or if we have a special grain price to offer on a given day, this is how we get the word out. We charge $100/yr for this service but you’ll find that it’s well worth it when you get those extra $0.25/bushel or when you save $0.25/litre on your glyphosate.

OPENING COMMENTS:

Fairly quiet day today after the markets settled, but we still managed to trade a decent chunk. It’s nice to see Oats on the trade section again and numbers are pretty attractive too, milling quality is trading above $5/bu mark picked up in they yard and feed is above $4/bu picked up. Yellow peas are still leading when it comes to trades and values. We are seeing lots of movement options and contracts are executed above $15/bu FOB Farm for August – September, touching $16/bu FOB Farm on anything that will move farther out. We have equivalent demand for Green and Maple Peas, values are pretty similar to Yellow Peas with minor differences on Maples based on the variety. We were bidding around $10/bu FOB Farm on low tannin varieties of Faba Beans in AB today and have strong demand and quick movement available. Lots of interest in Brown and Yellow Flax as well, spot and new crop, make sure to show us offers if interested in moving portion of your inventory. That’s applicable to virtually any commodity at the moment, majority of the buyers are very motivated and open to reasonable offers.

We can deliver for second pass application or we can also sell this product as a desiccant for RoundUp Ready Canola. We have 3 years of data showing that Glufosinate works great as a desiccant on canola. The glufosinate product that we offer is the only one in Canada that has canola desiccation on the label. If you’re planning on straight cutting canola this fall and you’re exploring desiccation options give us a call to discuss this product. We’re priced at $7.80/L. Usage rate in a desiccation application (1.08L/acre) is lower than an in-crop application (1.35L/acre) for a total of about $8.40/acre. This should be cheaper than a combination of heat and glyphosate given the glyphosate pricing this year. Call us for more info.

PLANT GROWTH STIMULANTS:

These products have been exceptionally popular with growers that have actually given them a try. We have a 90% customer retention rate on Plant Growth Stimulants. The returns are quite simply there. We usually see at least 2 bushels per acre with the use of these products but in some years we see as high as 5-10 bushels/acre. For a product that is so inexpensive and so simple to use it is worth using on every acre, every crop year.

 

We have recommendations for all Western Canadian field crops. Call us for more information on our line of stimulants.

JOKE:

But he can’t find a place to park. In desperation, he begins to pray. “Please Lord, if you help me find a parking stall right now, I promise to go to church every Sunday and never drink vodka again!”

A moment later, he sees a beautiful empty spot right next to the entrance.

“Never mind. Found one!”
