Nature Conservancy of Canada highlights need for greater conservation in Canada this Environment Week

Nature Conservancy of Canada highlights need for greater conservation in Canada this Environment Week

Our planet is a very different place today than when your grandparents were born. Despite the copious amount of conservation work occurring on a daily basis by citizens, volunteers and environmental groups, biodiversity is continuing to be lost in Canada.

In order to restore the Earth’s “factory settings,” which provide habitat for species and critical ecosystem services to Canadians, organizations such as the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) are constantly finding more ways to conserve and restore our lands and waters for the long term.

When it comes to protecting canola from sclerotinia, timing is everything

In canola, sclerotinia remains one of the most damaging diseases, and left unprotected, growers across Western Canada are witnessing yield losses of up to 50 percent of their crop.

“With tighter rotations and increasing high moisture conditions during the critical period of canola flowering, growers are seeing an elevation in sclerotinia pressure throughout Western Canada over the past few years,” said Glen Forster, Fungicide Technical Marketing Specialist in Western Canada for BASF.

Two applications of fungicide in cereals pay off with quality and yield

Two applications of fungicide in cereals pay off with quality and yield

Cereal acres are up considerably, in part due to an early soybean harvest and a dry fall last year in much of Eastern Canada. Therefore, it will be more important than ever to consider a preventative fungicide application for leaf disease and Fusarium head blight (FHB) this coming season.

Cereal disease specialists advise that there are three important application timings for fungicides: 1) early applications at the herbicide timing; 2) flag leaf timing to control leaf diseases, and; 3) at heading for protection against FHB which negatively affects grade.

High-speed broadband is essential for rural and northern Canada

High-speed broadband is essential for rural and northern Canada

A long overdue conversation has begun in Canada about how to ensure large sections of our country are no longer cut off from an essential service which is taken for granted by so many others – access to high-speed Internet. For too long now, many people in rural, remote, and northern communities have either been forced to live with inadequate and spotty online services, or in many cases, no high-speed Internet at all. In fact, Canada’s current broadband coverage standards for upload and download speeds fall well behind many industrialized nations.

Canada’s largest parks, protected areas: Canadians' gift to the world

Canada’s largest parks, protected areas: Canadians' gift to the world

Canada’s greatest contribution to sustaining our planet’s biodiversity and ecological services may very well be our abundance. From some of the world’s largest intact forests and wetlands, to wild northern rivers, Canada is one of only a handful of countries with true wilderness and wild spaces remaining.

Reflecting on our evolving relationship with this planet on Earth Day, it is clear that we need big protected wild places. And we need big protected wild places not just for nature, but to secure the quality of life for future generations.
