Field Tour & AGM

We're back! We are excited to be hosting in-person events again, and we're kicking things off with a Field Tour & our AGM on August 5th near Mayerthorpe, AB!

Join us as we take a closer look at the forage trial sites we have for our Soil Revitalization project, focused on soil health improvements. These sites include some interesting annual forage mixes and rotations that you're going to want to check out!

We'll also be getting an in-field look at one of the soil moisture monitoring systems & weather stations we have installed as part of our Soil Moisture in Forage Systems project, and the experts from Martin Deerline will be on hand to showcase this technology & answer all your burning questions.
