Event Description

Our premier hay, straw and forage products, exceptional producers, and our abundant forage and grassland resources power Canada's beef and dairy sector. However, reduced focus on forage research and development, coupled with increasing returns for annual crops and the resulting decrease in forage acreage has negatively impacted the industry. Transportation costs and logistical issues also have influenced the ability of some provinces to export. Despite this, our dairy sector continues to need high quality hay, straw and forage products and our rapidly expanding beef industry has similar requirements. As well, our Canadian exporters have managed to successfully negotiate protocols with key importing nations such as the US, UK and the Middle East and have consequently increased the potential for forage exports to new markets.

Opportunities abound for commercial entrepreneurs and innovative companies positioned to take advantage of existing and new markets within this expanding and dynamic sector of the Canadian economy. Attend our annual conference November 18-19, with an optional tour on November 17, in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Québec, to help us continue to forge a path forward for our strategic forage and grassland industry.

Prairie Crop Disease Monitoring Network: End-of-season assessment of the ascochyta/mycosphaerella complex of field pea

During June and July, crop scouting for the ascochyta/mycosphaerella complex in field pea is critical for assessing risk and gauging the need for and timing of an in-crop fungicide application.  However, late season crop scouting is also important as it can be used to assess the prevalence, severity and impact of these disease issues.
