Event description
For agronomists and farmers planning to switch acres into intercrops in 2019, hone knowledge, network & tactics for this growing season.

About this Event

Sustainable Grain is partnering with Joel Williams of Integrated Soils, and Lana Shaw from the Southeast Saskatchewan Research Farm, to deliver a comprehensive, one-day workshop on intercropping in Regina on April 9th. The course is designed for agronomists and farmers planning to switch acres into intercrops in 2019, looking to hone their knowledge, network and tactics heading into the growing season.

Why Should Farmers Try Intercropping? Intercropping is beneficial, economically and agronomically, for conventional and organic farms alike. Conventional farms can use it to create multiple revenue streams from the same fields, and to reduce pesticide and fertilizer costs. Organic farms deploy intercropping in the transition and certified years to help manage weeds and disease and to boost soil and plant ecosystem health overall within their ecologically-designed systems.
