(Picture Butte, AB) August 24, 2016 – RealAgriculture is excited to announce a three year renewal of the Canola School partnership with Alberta Canola, Sask Canola and Manitoba Canola Growers. This builds on the previous three-year agreement between the four partners.
Canola School is an online agronomic educational series that assists growers in achieving higher profits through the delivery of visual agronomic content that they can learn from at their convenience.
“Partnering with the three provincial grower organizations to provide 30 diverse episodes per year allows us to create true value for canola growers across Western Canada because the content is always relevant,” says RealAgriculture’s Shaun Haney. “Involving the Canola Council of Canada agronomists in the videos is an incredible opportunity to provide resources and information based both on research and in-field experience.”
Growers have the ability to view the videos on demand, from any device. All episodes are broken into the categories of seeding; disease, weeds & insects; harvest; and marketing. Users can also search for a specific topic by clicking on the search box on the upper right of the page.
“Canola School is one of the best ways we get timely information out to the growers who need it,” says Stuart Holmen, Grower Relations and Extension Chair with Alberta Canola. “Growers don’t always get to learn from agronomists outside of their own region so this is a great way to share that wealth of information without geographical barriers.”
You can find the latest episodes and the entire library — featuring over 180 videos — at CanolaSchool.com.
