Calvin has worked in forage seed research in the Peace River Region of Alberta for many years and has a wealth of knowledge on herbicide screening and plant growth regulator testing on many forage seed crops.
Other speakers are: Jessica Pratchler, Research Manager with the Northeast Agriculture Research Foundation will describe results of the 2018 forage seed research program at the Melfort Research Farm; Dan Malamura and Dr. Sean Prager with the University of Saskatchewan will talk about their red clover management and lesser clover leaf weevil project; and Terry Kowalchuk, Provincial Forage Crop Specialist will present the forage seed market update.
