Small Grains Winter Webinar Series – Organic Weed Management for Small Grains
Wednesday March 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Managing small grains organically can be a challenge when it comes to crop protection. It’s important to know what tools are available in your organic farming toolkit to manage weeds and other pests to produce the best yields and quality grains possible.
Dr. Martin Entz is a professor in the Department of Plant Science at the University of Manitoba and inaugural Jarislowsky Chair in Natural Systems Agriculture for Climate Solutions. His research focuses on ecologically-integrated farming systems and empowering farmers with the knowledge and other tools required to design sustainable farming systems adapted to where they live. He’s well-versed in growing small grains, and has been involved in the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security’s participatory plant-breeding programs, which empower farmers to make their own plant selections. Dr. Entz knows how challenging it can be to be an ecological farmer – and he’s got plenty of knowledge to share!
