Alternative Crop Seminar

This seminar is FULL. Thanks to everyone who registered!

Are you looking for ways to lengthen your crop rotation?

Tighter field-crop rotations are leading to problems: increased disease prevalence, more insect pressure, and herbicide resistant weeds.

Lamont County Agriculture Service Board is hosting an Alternative Crop Seminar to offer some ideas to help aid in diversification of field-crop operations.

Date: Thursday, February 11, 2016
Location: St. Michael Hall

  • Grant Lastiwka, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry – “Forages for profit, above and below the ground”

*Light lunch will be provided, with presentations starting at 1:00 p.m.
