The Second Phase completed in 2017 included another 23,000-tonne storage and handling warehouse. Phase Three includes expansion of the rail facilities, doubling the load in capabilities and an additional 23,000 tonne warehouse. The 160,000 square foot facility has total storage of 66,000 tonnes and 150,000 –160,000 tonnes of throughput annually.

How to get the most out of your dry bean production this season.
May 23, 2023
Secure your investment in your crop protection products by improving the performance of your spray with an adjuvant, even when you don’t have optimal conditions. The WinField lineup includes herbicide adjuvants and fungicide adjuvants, as well as adjuvants that work effectively with insecticides, desiccants and defoliants. When used with a glyphosate, an adjuvant helps the glyphosate penetrate the plant better. When a drift control adjuvant is used, less spray is wasted in the wind. WinField adjuvants and water conditioners are suitable for use in both ground and aerial applications. The team at Shur- Gro Farm Services can help determine the right products for your farms operation.
