2020 Canadian Forage Seed Conference

Tuesday, February 25, 2020 9:00 am - Wednesday, February 26, 2020 11:47 pm
This event does not repeat

Improving the Cropping System Resiliency

On February 25th and 26th, 2020 forage seed growers, researchers, extension staff and agribusinesses will congregate for the first Canadian Forage Seed Conference since 2006! The conference will be hosted at the Fantasyland Hotel which is attached to the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, AB.

The goal of this conference is to unite the industry throughout Canada and increase awareness and interest in forage seed production. With the current challenges in Canadian grain markets, we have a great opportunity to increase awareness of the benefits of incorporating forage seed crops into any cropping system. Perennial forage seed crops can offer these growers market diversity and dispersal of timing in terms of workload. For the faithful forage seed grower, it will be an opportunity to hear about new technologies in the industry and where research is headed.
