Note to Long-Term Users

The Interactive Manitoba Soils and Agricultural Capability Map has been a valuable resource for our community for many years. I'm grateful for the generous donations that have supported it in the past. However, with rising costs, the donation model is no longer sustainable. While I've received numerous messages expressing support and a willingness to pay for the service, a recent review revealed that many subscriptions had lapsed or encountered billing issues (there were only 2 active subscriptions helping cover the monthly operating costs). To ensure this essential tool remains available and continues to evolve, I'm introducing a fair and value-driven subscription model.
