BC Ministry of Ag: Forage Action Plan
The BC Ministry of Agriculture has initiated a project to develop a Forage Action Plan and has contracted Ference and Company, an independent consulting company, to conduct the process. To that end, it is vital that forage and forage-related stakeholders are able to provide their thoughts and feedback in terms of the priorities, challenges, and recommended actions regarding forage and forage-related issues in their sector and region.

New Pesticide Labels Mobile App
Check out Health Canada's new app that allows individuals to access pesticide labels that have been registered for use in Canada!
"Users will be able to save their searches as well as download product labels to their ‘Favorites’ for access, even when they are offline. 'Favorites' will also auto-update whenever users access them when online. Pesticide labels can be searched based on various factors including product name and active ingredient."

Peace Forage Seeding Tool
Based off of the BC Rangeland Seeding Manual published in 2013, this new online tool goes through an interactive decision making process to help users select forage species to seed, create seed mixtures with a seed mix calculator and even connect with seed suppliers! The development of the tool is spearheaded by the Peace River Forage Association of BC but AB & BC levy grower dollars were put towards creating links between users and seed suppliers!
Check out the tool and it's progress here.

Forage Seed Canada Update
Forage Seed Canada has recently decided to go dormant due to low engagement and funds. Contact Tobin Dirks or Danny Limoges if you have any questions or concerns.
