Issues Ink, a publishing firm based at Winnipeg, Man., in tandem with the Seed Industry Partnership, has created a website totally focused on fusarium head blight and its management. The site provides a combination of farmer-focused information including updated testing results from local labs, with useful fusarium links and provincial fusarium survey results.
“It’s become obvious that Canadian farmers need to be kept ‘in the loop’ on the fusarium head blight situation. We’re happy to provide background information, data and resources to the industry with the fusarium web page,” says Andrea Geary, managing editor at Issues Ink. “We are convinced the tools found on the site will be valuable to farmers and will help keep them informed of the situation across the Prairies.”
