Soil carbon sequestration is a powerful tool in improving soil health and in taking on climate change. Find out how it works with rancher Doug Wray, research scientist Monika Gorzelak and special guest host Kimberly Cornish.
Beavers are often a pain in the behind for agricultural producers. But what if producers worked with beavers to manage their water? Wetland ecologist Dr. Glynnis Hood of the University of Alberta explains.
Three agricultural producers present on how they would adjust their land management practices in the future to a changing climate.
Binnu Jeyakumar of the Pembina Institute explains how agricultural producers can take advantage of a new $200 million program in Alberta and what community renewable energy is.
A growing body of data shows organic agriculture is more energy efficient, produces less greenhouse gases and nurtures soil’s amazing ability to sequester carbon. Find out why with Dr. Tracy Misiewicz of The Organic Center.
Seth Leon of the Alberta Community and Co-operatives Association goes through the process of forming your own agricultural producers co-operative that will help you save on costs and minimize your environmental footprint.
Been toying with the idea of forming an agricultural producers co-operative? Learn how to create a co-op with other producers and hear from producers who have already formed their own.
It doesn’t matter what kind of agriculture you are involved in, soil carbon is the lifeblood of your farm or ranch. Soil microbes feed on it and in exchange soil becomes fertile and productive. This process also provides a valuable service of sequestering carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in the ground.
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.
Alberta’s farms and ranches are home to so much more than livestock and crops. From dung beetles to deer, crocuses to spruce trees, countless wildlife species live and thrive on agricultural land. In fact, the more diverse a farm or ranch is in plants and animals the more agricultural producers benefit. It is a win-win for producers and ecosystems.
