Powered by Rynaxypyr®, DuPont™ Coragen® is from a whole new group of chemistry (Group 28) with no cross-resistance to other chemistries.

2013 MB Sunflower Surveillance Survey
Posted: May 8, 2013
As spring slowly rolls out, I wanted to take the opportunity to update our membership and surveillance participants on the format of our 2013 Sunflower Surveillance Survey. Due to financial constraints with reduced acres, the Board of Directors has decided to postpone the hiring of a new agronomist until 2014. The lack of a full-time agronomist will reduce our surveillance reporting and scouting capabilities for this year.
For this summer, the NSAC along with MAFRI have hired Danitra Warkentin who will focus 60% of her time on sunflowers. This will include surveillance of the sunflower crop throughout Manitoba with reports prepared twice a month. Growers interested in signing up their fields for the surveillance survey, please email (email@example.com) with their sunflower field legal land description.
The Survey is scheduled to start upon emergence of the sunflower crop and continuing through to August. The NSAC office will be available for questions and can field calls with concerns. The NSAC has a good working relationship with a number of specialists and can assist with any questions. Office: (204) 745-6776
