University of Alberta PhD candidate Erin Daly discusses the research she is conducting at the Breton Plots to determine if perennial grains could be a viable crop in Alberta that could potentially require less inputs too.
Perennial crop production (grains, oilseeds, pulses) is an emerging field of research in North America. Some of the research on perennial cereal grain is taking place in right here in Alberta. We are giving you an opportunity to connect with one of the University of Alberta researchers.
Farm productivity and profitability can be maximized through understanding the relationships between soil function, organic matter, microbiology and biology. Learn more from soil microbiologist Dr. Kristine Nichols.
Estimates are 60% of food produced in Canada is thrown away. CEO of Fare Community, Aman Adatia, believes we need to look at food waste as a food surplus agricultural producers can sell to the public.
Solar power is a proven technology, but that doesn’t mean people don’t have questions about solar still. Listen to Lakeland College’s expert panel as it answers many of the common questions on solar.
Perennial crop production (grains, oilseeds, pulses) is an emerging field of research in North America. Some of the research on perennial cereal grain is taking place in right here in Alberta at one of the province’s oldest agriculture research stations. We are giving you an opportunity to see it for yourself.
