The Saskatchewan Forage Seed Development Commission and the NorthEast Agricultural Research Foundation (NARF) are making plans to establish 10 forage seed crops at the NARF site near Melfort SK in 2013. In this establishment year, a number of crop protection products will be applied to the seedling stands with the goal to develop crop tolerance data. The 10 crops will be maintained for a number of years providing the opportunity to test products on established forage seed crops. These plans will also provide the opportunity to demonstrate forage seed crops and technologies to growers in Saskatchewan at summer field days in 2013 and in future years.
