Updates to TDG and anhydrous ammonia-specific training. Regular alerts through member exclusive communications; urban creep.
  • Fertilizer: Changes to the Ammonia Code of Practice. Significant changes to the B620 and B622 standards that govern anhydrous ammonia nurse tanks. Negotiating variances to Manitoba nutrient application restrictions.
  • International Trade: Participating in the Maximum Residue Limits (MRL) Steering Committees and the Keep It Clean campaign.
  • Sustainability: Multiple roundtables, steering committees, and discussion groups developing agricultural policy at the federal level to ensure retailers’ voice is heard.
