Agronomy Update was held in Lethbridge this year, and covered dozens of topics, from nutrients to crops for biodiesel to disease and insect issues. Mark Olson, pulse crops research agrologist with Alberta Agriculture, discussed markets and variety selection for pulses. Olson says when choosing a variety it’s important to look at all the options. He refers to the Agriculture Financial Services Corporation survey of field pea.
