Our organization has been through many changes in the last year with the closure of our small plot research program we are thrilled to begin building our large-scale field plot research program. Our goal with this new program is to collaborate with our membership to collect meaningful on farm research and share that information out effectively. We have hired Krystin Brody as a crop technologist to spear head this program, her knowledge of the BC Peace Region and background in Ag Retail will be a tremendous assist in getting this program started. We are looking to connect with farmers who have their own on farm plots this year and would be interested in us helping them collect and publish data this fall. Part of Krystin’s roles with also be in season field support if you would like her to come out and help solve any agronomy issues, please give her a call @ 250-219-3295

Our long time research assistant Sarah Prebushski has returned from mat leave and  true to Sarah’s commitment to this organization she has changed roles and as of the end of June will be taking on the office management for the organization.
