Name of creator
The Nova Scotia Grain and Forage Commission was established on 19 May 1977 as the Provincial Grain Commission, operating under the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture and Marketing. The commission worked alongside the Nova Scotia Grain Marketing Board and in 1992 its mandate and name expanded to include the responsibility of forages throughout the province.
Donated to the Agricola Archives by C. Holland in 1999 (accession number A1999-035). Further records were found in the MacRae library, origin unknown and added to the Agricola collections in 2021 (accession number A2021-013).
