Canola Discovery Forum 2014 – Day 1

Guest speakers include:

Dr. Jeff Schoenau, professor in the Department of Soil Science at the University of Saskatchewan, will explain what we know and help us discover what we don’t know about soil fertility management. He will also provide some insights on tech transfer.
Kristjan Hebert, a Southeast Saskatchewan grower, strives to capture opportunities in agriculture before they become main stream. He’s driven in part by economist Danny Klinefelter’s 5% rule — which states that a 5% increase in production combined with a 5% reduction in cost have a huge influence on competitive advantage and profitability. He speaks in favour of research that will help Canadian canola growers achieve these 5% advances, thereby enhancing canola’s position in Prairie crop rotations and against all oilseed competitors globally.
Kip Tom, whose family runs a large farm based in Indiana, will explain how he crunches production data to squeeze more yield and more profit from their farm operations. Tom Farms is involved in a number of platforms advancing data systems to improve production and financial decision making. Canola Discovery Forum is your chance to join in discussions on how we can apply his experience to canola research and production.
