AgriStability: should it be part of your company's BRM strategy?
Webinar Leader: Mark Hayward, Policy Analyst, AAFC BRM Programs Branch
The AgriStability program is designed to provide financial support to primary producers experiencing financial challenges. AgriStability is a reference margin program, and payments are triggered when reference margins fall below 70%.
With no other production insurance products available to the nursery and greenhouse floriculture sectors, a solid understanding of AgriStability is essential to determining whether or not this program should be a part of your company's business risk management portfolio. At the request of CNLA and Flowers Canada Growers (FCG), AAFC's Financial Programs Branch has agreed to offer this informational webinar designed specifically for Canada's wholesale nursery growers and greenhouse floriculture growers.
This webinar will provide a thorough overview of the AgriStability program and will provide time for Questions and Answers.
Integrated Pest Management
Webinar Leader: Peter Isaacson, IPM/Minor Use Coordinator, CNLA
Since 2003, the CNLA has been involved in the registration of over 40 new insecticides, miticides, fungicides, herbicides and biopesticides for nursery growers in Canada. Join Peter Isaacson, CNLA's IPM/Minor Use Coordinator to learn more about availability and use of pest control products currently available to nursery growers. Peter will focus on some of the newest products and provide updates on future products making their way through PMRA's registration process. Time permitting; some updates on older chemistries re-evaluated by the Pest Management Regulatory Agency and some suggestions on managing hard to control pests such as fire blight and horsetail will be covered. This is your opportunity to ask questions as well as to provide input into what's really bugging you and your nursery plants in the nursery production setting.
