Producers can now place their orders for Alberta’s Crop Protection Guide, otherwise known as the Blue Book.
Starting Wednesday, Alberta farmers, agronomists and agriculture retailers can get ahead of the busy growing season by placing their 2022 Blue Book orders at albertabluebook.com with shipping at the beginning of March.
This marks the second year that four of Alberta’s crop commissions – Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers, and the Alberta Wheat Commission – have collaborated to produce the Blue Book. Previously produced by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, the 2021 Blue Book was the inaugural season of the commissions assuming production.
Along with annual updates to crop protection products and information, enhancements to the 2021 Blue Book included a revised sprayer operations section and a new section on pesticide resistance.Click here to see more...
