A workshop is being held at Credit Union Place in Summerside, Prince Edward Island Jan. 17-18 to provide producers with information to help them increase the productivity and profitability of oilseed and cereal crops.

Those attending will be able to learn from fellow PEI producers’ experiences in the sector.

 There will be presentations on:

• The challenges and opportunities in growing soybeans, canola and other oilseeds in rotation with potatoes (Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada scientists Aaron Mills and  Richard Martin) 

 • Soybean crop production, management practices and common soybean and canola diseases that may affect production

 • Opportunities for specialty field crops like crambe, rapeseed, flax and  borage

• What crops and varieties to grow and fungicides to use to fight Fusarium Head Blight (Richard Martin)

• National and international policy and trade issues that affect PEI farmers

 The workshop is in partnership with the PEI Department of Agriculture and Forestry, together with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, through the Canada-Prince Edward Island Growing Forward agreement.
