Retailer Training

If you are a CCA, you can earn CEUs for completing this CCA Examiner article and exam on Midge Tolerant Wheat.

As a retailer of Midge Tolerant Wheat varieties, you are required to communicate and educate farmers on the technology and the Stewardship Agreement that accompanies its use.

In order to support you in this role, the Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Team has prepared an online training program that’s quick and easy for you to complete at your convenience. It can be accessed in your office on your laptop or desktop computer, or in the field via your tablet or smartphone.

The course, which takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, reviews the life cycle of wheat midge and midge damage. It also details how Midge Tolerant Wheat technology works, single gene resistance and the interspersed refuge system. Finally, it covers the Midge Tolerant Wheat Stewardship Agreement, including why it is necessary and details of the Agreement.

The training incorporates a quiz to ensure you understand the information. Upon successful completion, you will receive a Midge Tolerant Wheat Authorized Retailer Number, which must be referenced on all Midge Tolerant Wheat Retailer Agreements.
