Welcome to Antara’s new home on the web. Over time we hope to use this as a vehicle to share information pertinent to growers and crop production in the Red River Valley.

There are two sides to Antara’s business. One is working with producers to manage and/or improve their operations through more efficient crop production. The other side to our business is facilitating the evaluation of new production practices through replicated on-farm research. This is done through co-operative efforts with industry, extension and producers. With a dedicated group of producers working together, our research can evaluate practices quicker and our results are based on local growing environments.

As the fall progresses into winter we will be adding more content on a regular basis so please check back often. If you would like more information on our on-farm research group or you are looking for some agronomy related help, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

  1. Hello! Could not find your phone number on your website, nor your complete name. I’ve set up an online NDVI service that you may be able to leverage on your research. Perhaps we could speak briefly? The service is found on our homepage if you’d like to have a look. I enjoyed reading your site and would be interested in collaborating.

    1. It was our pleasure! Maybe we can meet up again sometime this winter and give you an update on our research network. In the meantime if you are interested in some on-farm research data, a friend of our that farms in Rivers, MB just north of Brandon posts all his stuff online. There is a small fee for the most recent data but you can browse alot of his previous work at http://www.agritruth.ca. His farm is zero till and he has been running controlled traffic for 3-4 years now. Lots of great information. Take care and good luck with harvest!

    1. Hi John,

      Seeding wheat with a planter works very well. We do need more years of testing to properly evaluate the pros and cons of planter vs drills and wide vs narrow row spacing. Our last two growing seasons have been very dry which I feel gives narrower row spacing an edge.
