More information on the Manitoba Management Plus Program:
Producers insured by MASC AgriInsurance are required to supply their yield and management information. MASC uses this data to refine its existing programs and develop new programming, but the data is also valuable to farmers.
The Manitoba Management Plus Program (MMPP) provides producers with over 20 years of meaningful, anonymized production and management data. Producers use this information for benchmarking, marketing assessment and improved farm management decision making. Data is available in a number of publications and tools:
- MMPP Publications: Yield Manitoba is published annually in February as a joint publication between the Manitoba Co-operator and MASC.
- Regional Analysis Tools: The MMPP regional analysis tools enable farmers, researchers and agribusiness to access and pull out useful, unbiased and real world regional yield and management information from these historic records.
- Management Information: MMPP also researches agricultural methods such as crop rotations and seeding dates and their effects on production.
- Map Tools: MMPP has produced hundreds of thematic maps over the years that describe the ‘ground truth’ of agriculture in Manitoba.
