The Saskatchewan Forage Seed Development Commission (SFSDC) field day was held as part of the Northeast Agricultural Research Foundation (NARF) field day on July 24, 2013. Over 150 people attended the field day south of Melfort SK at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Station. SFSDC joined in the field day, providing an explanation of the current trials at Melfort, and an overview of the Commission and its research program. Representatives of the University of Saskatchewan provided an update on their ongoing research project looking into nitrogen use in forage seed grass crops. BASF Canada gave us an update on their crop protection products for use in forage crops.
SFSDC would like to thank Stu Brandt and Brett Mollison of NARF for their efforts and expertise with the research projects. We would like to thank Dow Agrosciences, NuFarm Agriculture, Bayer Cropscience and BASF Canada for providing herbicides for the trials as well as Pickseed Canada for supplying the seed. Special thanks go to BASF Canada who also contributed funding for this project.
