Alberta crop commissions to handle 2021 crop protection guide

December 9, 2020  By Top Crop Manager

Recently, Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers and the Alberta Wheat Commission announced the launch of, the new website for Alberta’s Crop Protection Guide. The Blue Book website is now accepting advanced pre-orders of the 2021 Blue Book for shipping in March of 2021.

While the commissions are currently producing the 2021 Blue Book – paper copies will be available in March 2021 – an advanced ordering system for deliveries in the spring is available. This new feature allows retailers, agronomists and farmers to place their 2021 Blue Book orders well in advance of the busy spring season.

“We are very excited to be unveiling the new Blue Book website. With this advanced ordering system, we hope that ordering the Blue Book is one less thing farmers and agronomists need to worry about when spring rolls around,” said Dave Bishop, chair of Alberta Barley, in a press release.


Engagement and feedback are important in this startup year of producing the Blue Book. The commissions encourage industry to subscribe to the Blue Book’s email list to receive updates and news on the publication going forward, and provide input through the feedback form embedded on the website.
