About 80 people were in attendance at the Manitoba Canola Growers AGM held last week at CropConnect in Winnipeg.
Executive Director Delaney Ross Burtnack says it was a good meeting.
"No resolutions this year but I still have a pretty good list of things to look into on our members' behalf," commented Ross Burtnack. "Conversation about seed prices and how we can manage the increasing seed prices in canola. Questions about seed treatments and some of the challenges going on with the neonicotinoid products and Pest Management Regulatory activities there."
Clubroot and tight canola rotations were also discussed at the meeting.
Ross Burtnack notes there will be no changes to the board in 2019, with Starbuck farmer Chuck Fossay remaining on as President.
The organization is expecting canola acres to remain constant this year, a little bit above the three million acre mark.
