Farmers ready to rock out to agronomy at WheatStalk
The latest in wheat-related research will be on full display at a crop walk in the Lethbridge area on Thursday, July 20.
Farming Smarter is hosting WheatStalk in partnership with the Alberta Wheat Commission, the Western Winter Wheat Initiative and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada – Lethbridge.
“It’s a day of agronomy and research about wheat that’s relevant to growers and how that impacts their profitability,” said Alberta Wheat’s Brian Kennedy, who says there will also be no shortage of experts on hand at the event to speak on various research projects.
“Ken Cole from Farming Smarter will be showing his hail machine and the research he’s been doing with that. Dr. Jamie Larsen from AAFC will be showing his durum breeding program, Dr. Brian Beres from AAFC will be talking agronomy and Dr. Haley Catton from AAFC will be showing her work on wireworms.”
Kennedy says it’s also a great opportunity to network.
“They can network with other farmers and agronomists to find out information relevant to issues they were facing on their own farm.”
