Farming Smarter Field Schools Wrap Up Another Successful Year

Farming Smarter hosted its field school in Lethbridge, AB this week. RealAgriculture’s Jason Stroeve was there and took the opportunity to speak to Farming Smarter’s assistant manager Jamie Puchinger.

In the below interview, Puchinger describes this year’s agenda, which included morning sessions on herbicides and weather considerations for spraying. The afternoon offered participants the opportunity to choose their next focus through the “select-a-session” portion of the agenda. Producers discussed everything from gopher control to farm safety.

Stay tuned to RealAg for more from the Farming Smarter field school.
