  • Blair’s was the first in the region to import bulk agricultural fertilizers into Saskatchewan in 1948.
  • We were at the forefront of shepherding direct seeding technology in the 1980s.
  • Blair’s was one of the most progressive independent ag retailers in western Canada to help farmers successfully adopt novel trait canola varieties and systems.
  • Blair’s was one of the first to promote a preharvest application of glyphosate for the enhanced control of perennial weeds.
  • Blair’s was one of the first to pioneer the application of chemtrition.

As farmers rise to the challenge of feeding 9.7 billion mouths by 2050, We’ll need solutions, not just products.

 

Consider these new ag technologies (below), emerging to increase your productivity. Blair’s hallmark of being the first with new ideas and technologies is your obvious choice to capitalize on these new technologies:

Machine Learning

Training computers to identify weeds, diseases and other agronomic conditions accelerates automated field diagnostics. Sentera is one company already doing this commercially.

Field to Table Food Traceability

Tells consumers where their food originated and how it was produced, from seed to table. One local example is Blair’s Premium Angus Beef, a fully traceable quality premium protein, locally produced.

Aerial Imagery 

UAV in-season imagery, plus satellite imagery, reveal how your crop’s doing while we can still make adjustments; and how global crops are doing in the aggregate, for marketing insight.

Autonomous Equipment

Robotic autonomous equipment, cultivators and sprayers. More targeted autonomous weed control and precision-fertility technologies are already in test mode. Automation will free you to spend more time planning.
 

CRISPR

This easier way to edit genes and heredity opens new horizons for beneficial resistance to pests, disease; the sky's almost the limit. CRISPR stands for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, a streamlined way to add and delete genetic traits.

Already, Blairs.Ag Cattle Company is a globally ranked source of top-quality beef genetics.

The Cloud

Ag data in the cloud allows you to update or check your records anywhere, anytime. Make informed decisions by consulting or updating your always-updated cost of production, for example.

Internet Of Things. Sensors in your soils, in engines, at livestock gates, and in grain bins, for example, provide feedback wirelessly without human presence.
