MPSG’s New Website Increases Access to Farmer Resources

Carman, MB – ­ November 30, 2017 – ­Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers’ website has been redesigned to make research results, On-Farm Network trial data and production information even more accessible to Manitoba farmers.

“It’s now a leading-edge website,” says Director of Communications Toban Dyck. “The research and On­Farm Network sections are user-friendly and fully searchable using filters, categories and keywords. Information needs to be presented in a readable format. Information needs to be searchable. Farmers need to be able to find what they need to make their farms more profitable, more sustainable, more productive. Our resources are now more accessible than ever.”

Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers (MPSG) is a busy place. The research team is actively filing MPSG-funded results. The On-­Farm Network is rapidly growing. And production resources, such as the just-released Dry Bean Growth Staging Guide, are continually being developed and/or updated using the most current research.

On, visitors are now able to access all of MPSG’s On-Farm Network data, ensuring farmers have the opportunity to put the program’s applicable and relevant results to work on their farms. Farmers can search the entire Network and single-site reports by trial type, region and/or crop type.

The website’s newly designed research database ensures that the projects MPSG members fund are never more than a click or two away from being applied to their farming operations. The research database is also fully searchable by crop type, keyword and/or priority area.

The new website, which was built by Ryan Santschi of Interplay Creative, will also make it easier for individual Pulse Beat articles to be showcased in an attractive, shareable format.

“It’s important to MPSG that farmers are able to visit the site and find what they need, when they need it,” says MPSG Executive Director Francois Labelle. ”Take a trip through, sign up for The Bean Report and add your email to our news and events list.”
