Issue No. 58 - Winter 2010

SSCA will be hosting the Conservation Agriculture 2010 Conference at Evraz Place in Regina on February 9 and 10.

There has been a major trend towards conservation agriculture around the world with the South Americans, Australians and western Canadians leading the way. In keeping with this theme, Argentine no till expert, Roberto Pieretti is this year's keynote speaker. South American agriculture has embraced no-till systems to a greater extent than on the Canadian Prairies with over 80% adoption. While their farming systems are different than those used here, Roberto will discuss how we can incorporate some of their principles into our systems.
