Growers on the Canadian prairies produce more canola than farmers anywhere else. Used to make everything from vegetable oil to animal feed, the success of this key southern Alberta crop is being threatened by current hot, dry conditions.
Worried about drought, heat damage and supply issues, today’s producers depend more than ever on guidance from agronomists and soil scientists, and of course improved cultivars, to mitigate downside risks from poor weather and other natural threats.
Do more information and advanced technology actually enable growers to mine soil nutrients more quickly? Will it be enough to sustain productivity in challenging years?
Panelists: Dr. Danny Le Roy, Dr. Tom Jensen, and Autumn Barnes.
