Agronomy Geeks, Ep 21: Ryan Barrett


How does a dairy farmer’s kid end up advising Prince Edward Island potato farmers on how best to grow spuds?

If you’re Ryan Barrett, you get there by being curious, intelligent, adaptable, and an excellent communicator.

Barrett now leads research and agronomy for the PEI Potato Board, and spends much of his time fostering cooperation and coordination for the island’s potato industry. From exploring biofumigation, to building soil health and resiliency, to setting up and managing on-farm field trials, Barrett is a busy man.

In this episode of Agronomy Geeks, Barrett shares his career path to date and how a love of learning and networking is shaping his career.
