Manitoba Pulse and Soybean Growers (MPSG) is holding three smaller regional crop production meetings this year.
Cassandra Tkachuk is a production specialist with the organization.
"It was traditionally one meeting located in Portage directed at reaching our farmer members," she explained. "We're really focusing on getting some of our research and production messaging to farmers directly. This year we've actually split it into three different events, Winkler being one of those, just to reach different farmers in different areas of the province. We're hoping to possibly continue these regional meetings but it's a really nice way to interact and let the farmers ask the researchers questions directly."
Other stops this year include Stonewall and Boissevain.
Topics discussed included soybean cyst nematode, on-farm research, and pest considerations for soybean input decisions.
Roquette also made a presentation on the type of peas they want to purchase for their upcoming Portage operation.Source : Steinbachonline
