CTF Plot reports
The first year 2011 and second year 2012 reports of Controlled Traffic Farming Alberta's applied research plots are available below.
In the first year we were not expecting to see any significant differences between the check and the controlled traffic. The Lacombe site was severely damaged by heavy rain and hail in early July and the Dapp site suffered from excess moisture during emergence.
The 2012 crop year was generally better than 2011, however the Lacombe site suffered from excessive early season moisture and the Morrin site was hit by hail. The Rolling Hills site is irrigated and in its first year.
These initial reports here are based on a whole farm yield and economic approach. The yield data for the check and CTF is reported as the yield of the entire plot area.
As the information is further analyzed we will publish further reports.
More pictures of the plots are available on our Facebook page and on our YouTube channel.
