“I like the way the bluebook is set up for ease of use and using a variety of formats. I have used the bluebook in my work for about 35 years.”
“The Blue Book is my go to crop protection guide. As an independent agronomist, I want to make sure I have access to this great resource at all times, which is why I keep copies of it in my vehicle, backpack and office. I also give copies of the book to my clients so they can have it in their office and sprayer.”
“The Blue Book is an excellent and comprehensive resource to help inform pest control programs in Alberta. As a weed science researcher, I consult the Blue Book regularly when planning experiments and making pest control decisions. The vast detail included makes the Blue Book an essential resource for farmers and agronomists alike.”
“Applying crop protection products requires pulling together a lot of critical information and as a farmer, I rely on the Blue Book as a resource to do so. I keep a copy in my sprayer, the office and the shop so it's available at all times, especially if I'm adapting my plans on the fly.”
Valuable crop protection information for Alberta farmers and agronomists
Selecting the right chemical treatment requires specific knowledge of a farmer’s cropping system and intended market. The Blue Book compliments the chemical label to give farmers the information they need to make the right choice of chemistry to provide protection from pests without risking profit.
The Blue Book is reviewed and updated annually to include the latest information on pesticide application products, along with new product additions. Updates provided by crop protection companies give farmers access to the most current product information available.
Alberta farmers and agronomists have relied on The Blue Book for over 20 years. A recent survey revealed the majority of Alberta farmers and agronomists indicated The Blue Book as their first-choice resource on crop protection information.
