Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show digital event blends research with the practical  

Woodstock, ON., May 17, 2021 – From nitrogen management to cover crops, Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show speakers share their knowledge as ever-evolving farm management practices are informed by research and fieldwork. 

At the June 16 Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show digital event, two keynote speakers will discuss different ways to get more out of your crop, including nitrogen application and innovative cover crop solutions. 

  • Craig Drury, soil management biochemist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, will share information on nitrogen application options from application processes to nitrogen inhibitors and how these processes fit with 4R Nutrient Stewardship.  
  • Ian McDonald, Crop Innovations Specialist with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, will update research done in 2020 on the Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show site, sharing what they found out about establishing cereal rye as a cover crop in soybeans. 
  • Registered attendees will also hear from industry representatives from Bayer and Pride Seeds. 

“Sharing information based on real-world conditions in the field is a tradition of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show,” says Lynda Tityk, Executive Vice-President of Glacier FarmMedia. “In a challenging year when getting together in person is difficult, we’re finding ways to offer key information from the field to help farmers make the most of their cropping efforts.” 

Tityk says that the June 16 digital event of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show is built around the theme Getting on with Growing – Vigilance in Crop Care. The event platform is mobile-friendly so farmers can watch speaker sessions on their devices from a tractor, truck or field office.
