MPSG Looking For On-Farm Research Participants

Last year, Manitoba Pulse and Soybean Growers (MPSG) conducted over 70 on-farm research trials across the province.

On-Farm Specialist Greg Bartley talked about their focus this year.

"We have a large focus on soybeans, that is the majority of acres that we represent, so we have a multitude of trials to look at in soybeans, whether it's inoculants, seed treatments, fungicide. We're also trying to focus more on pulse crops. So we're trying to increase our presence in dry beans and field beans and even looking at faba bean data as well."

Farmers who participate will receive a statistical analysis following the trial. Those interested in participating in this year's trials can go to www.manitobapulse.ca.

MPSG has been investing in on-farm research since 2012.
