Five commodity groups in Manitoba may soon merge, creating one organization to represent growers of soybeans, pulse crops, corn, flax, wheat, barley and sunflowers.
A steering committee leading the amalgamation released a report Dec. 14, summarizing the proposed merger. They want feedback on the concept and will hold meetings this winter about the structure of the new organization:
• Jan 10 at 1 p.m., St. Jean Farm Days
• Jan. 11 at 1 p.m., Dauphin
• Jan. 12 at 10 a.m., Stonewall
• Jan. 16 at 3 p.m., Brandon Ag Days
The proposal will also be discussed at the Feb. 14-15 Crop Connect conference in Winnipeg
