OMAFRA has conducted a soft launch of the new online version of the Inspection of Soil Pest Assessment Forms (PARS) for the purchase of neonicotinoid treated corn and soybean seeds from Class 12 Vendors.
The online version allows a producer or professional pest advisor to complete the form online, and email it directly to the Class 12 Vendor of choice.
The vendor will be advised of the request and when accepted, a copy will automatically be sent to OMAFRA thus alleviating the need for the vendor to submit these online forms to OMAFRA by October 31st of each year.
In addition, this version will assist the producer or professional pest advisor to complete and attach the required sketches via OMAFRA's AgMaps mapping tool.
