Legumes: Diversification, Crop Rotation & Seed Supply
Tuesday July 20, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Legumes are increasingly in high demand, whether by farmers for their crop rotation and nitrogen-fixating ability, or by consumers as alternative sources of protein and iron. However, there is a lack of readily available information about niche and emerging legume crops, in addition to challenges in seed availability, especially certified organic seeds. In this webinar, you will learn about 5 niche legume crops, why you might want to consider them for your crop rotation, how to grow them, and the status of their seed availability. This webinar is for grain growers of any scale in the Prairies and the rest of Canada.
Speakers: Neil Whatley and Ayitre Akpakouma
This event is part of the 2021 Seed Webinar Series run by the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security, run in collaboration with EFAO.
