2018 Guide to Crop Protection


Please click on the image to open a PDF copy.
The Guide to Crop Protection, produced by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture, provides information on the use of herbicides, fungicides and insecticides for control of weeds, plant diseases and insects. This publication is only a guide. Always refer to the product label for application details and precautions.





To help keep marketing options open and maximize return on investment, Cereals Canada recommends growers use practices such as applying a fungicide when there is an elevated FHB risk to manage the disease and to reduce the presence of FHB on seed. It is important to only apply fungicides registered for the crop and to apply according to the instructions on the label.

Fermentation technologies for improved nutritional quality and digestibility of wheat products

This project aims to develop fermentation technologies to reduce levels of adverse components in wheat and to improve tolerance of wheat products. The main objectives of this project include the reduction of FODMAPs in wheat and wheat bread by fermentation with food-grade lactobacilli and quantification of trypsin amylase inhibitors and wheat agglutinins in wheat and wheat bread fermented with addition of enzyme-active malt and lactobacilli.
