On behalf of CAAR’s staff and board of directors, we extend our deepest sympathies to the players of the Humboldt Broncos, along with their families, friends, neighbours and communities.

CAAR has been in contact with Manitoba Sustainable Development regarding the province’s restriction prohibiting the application of nitrogen and phosphorous during the winter and is advising all members that due to current soil and weather conditions, the application ban remains in effect until midnight April 10th. 

CAAR is pleased to announce that the updates to the Nurse Tank Safety Council of Canada’s (NTSCC) Nurse Tank Safety Program (NTSP) Quality Control (QC) Manual required for compliance to B620-14 have been completed.

This is a reminder that as of Jan. 12, 2018, all ammonia nurse and applicator tanks and transport delivery units (TDU) must be in compliance with new Transport Canada regulations implementing CSA B620/622-14 Standards1.

Applications are now being accepted for the Environmental Respect Awards (ERAs), an annual awards program honouring the environmental stewardship demonstrated by agri-retailers who sell, handle or apply crop protection products.

Congratulations CAAR member South Country Co-op for their win in the “Best of Medicine Hat 2018 Reader’s Choice Awards”!
