Alberta Canola Transitions Service Charge Administration to Levy Central

Alberta Canola Transitions Service Charge Administration to Levy Central. Effective June 1, 2024, the service charge collected from farmers on canola delivered in Alberta, is being administered by Levy Central.  The transition to Levy Central offers improved efficiencies in managing levy data and human resources. The internal administrative change will not impact canola farmers. Grain dealers licensed to buy canola will continue to collect and remit the regulated canola service charge of $1/tonne and seller information, which is now administered by Levy Central. Alberta Canola remains the contact for Alberta’s growers for all questions about the canola service charge. The move to Levy Central coincides with the retirement of Cheryl Rossi, who administered the service charge for the Alberta Canola Producers Commission for over 33 years. About Levy Central Based in Saskatoon, Levy Central administered the collection of agricultural check-off levies for 10 crop commodity organization

Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Detected in a Sioux County Dairy

The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) have detected a case of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in a herd of dairy cattle in Sioux County, Iowa.  About HPAI  HPAI is a viral disease that affects both wild and domestic bird populations as well as lactating dairy cattle. HPAI can travel in wild birds without those birds appearing sick, but is often fatal to domestic bird populations, including chickens and turkeys. With supportive care, dairy cattle recover with little to no mortality associated with the disease.  Heightened Biosecurity   The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship is strongly encouraging Iowa poultry producers and dairy farmers to bolster their biosecurity practices and protocols to protect their flocks and herds. The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship has biosecurity recommendations for dairy herds to utilize.

The First Ergot-Resistant Durum has Been Developed

In a Canadian first, ergot resistance has been incorporated into a durum line, called DT2033. It has a stack of high-value traits including intermediate resistance to fusarium head blight (FHB), another toxic disease. Developing DT2033 involved the integration of state-of-the-art molecular techniques, including genomic sequencing, gene expression analysis, and high-resolution genetic mapping. The research is being done jointly by AAFC Lethbridge, AAFC Swift Current and AAFC Morden in Manitoba. These approaches helped create high-throughput molecular tools, enabling the precise selection of ergot-resistant genes during the breeding process. “We believe DT2033 will become the next durum wheat variety grown on Canadian farms,” researcher Yuefeng Ruan of AAFC Swift Current says. Ergot-resistant durum wheat would be particularly important for Canada due to several reasons: Grain Quality and Safety: Ergot is a fungal disease that affects cereal crops, including durum wheat, and produces
