Mobile Version of Midge Tolerant Wheat Retailer Training Now Available
Retailers can now access the Midge Tolerant Wheat training program away from the office on their tablet or smartphone.
Launched by the Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Team, the program is compulsory for all retailers of Midge Tolerant Wheat. It replaces the original online training program and takes advantage of a new eLearning platform that offers more accessibility and interactivity for users.
"More than 460 retailers across Western Canada have successfully completed the training in the past five years," says Mike Espeseth, communications manager for the Western Grains Research Foundation (WGRF) and co-chair of the Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Team. "The program is critical to supporting retailers in their efforts to educate farmers on the technology and the Stewardship Agreement that accompanies its use. We're pleased to launch this new version and encourage all retailers to participate."
The new training, which takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, is essential for anyone new to selling Midge Tolerant Wheat varieties. It is also a great refresher for anyone who has already completed the original training program.
The training incorporates a quiz to ensure users understand the information. Upon successful completion, retailers receive a Midge Tolerant Wheat Authorized Retailer Number, which must be referenced on all Midge Tolerant Wheat Retailer Agreements.
