As a retailer of Midge Tolerant Wheat varieties, you’re required to complete the online Retailer Training Program and sign a Retailer Agreement before you make any sales. This training is vital for you to effectively educate your farmer customers about Midge Tolerant Wheat stewardship.
The course is quick and easy to complete at your convenience. Here’s what you can expect:
- A review of the wheat midge life cycle and midge damage
- Information on how Midge Tolerant Wheat technology works, single gene resistance and the interspersed refuge system
- Details of the Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Agreement and why it is necessary
- Quiz questions throughout the program
Within 48 hours of successful completion, you will receive an email with login credentials to the Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Assurance Site (MTWSAS). You’ll be prompted to sign a Retailer Agreement and then assigned an Authorized Retailer number so that you can start selling Midge Tolerant Wheat and track your sales.
Midge Tolerant Wheat Retailer Training is approved for CEU credits by Certified Crop Advisors as well as the Manitoba and Alberta Institutes of Agrologists. (The Saskatchewan Institute of Agrologists does not pre-approve Continuing Professional Development.)
