Dauphin, Manitoba March 6, 2017 –CanoLAB is celebrating its fifth year with a change of location taking them to Dauphin’s Credit Union Place on March 15 and 16.
The one-day hands-on workshop focuses on multiple areas of canola production. “CanoLAB is an interactive and informal educational experience,” says Angela Brackenreed, agronomist with the Canola Council of Canada (CCC). “A broad range of topics will be shared by over 15 expert instructors and range from pest identification and management to optimization of farm equipment.”
The Manitoba Canola Growers (MCGA), in partnership with CCC and Assiniboine Community College (ACC) are proud to host this year’s event which once again will feature live plants and insects.
“We are excited to be participating in CanoLAB once again this year,” said Danielle Tichit, Agribusiness instructor at Assiniboine. “This event provides a wonderful opportunity for our students. They act as ambassadors, connect with industry and learn more about the versatility and importance of canola in Manitoba.”
CanoLAB is made up of four groups rotating through concurrent stations each focusing on a different topic. This year’s topics include; Clubroot, look-a-like stressors and diseases, pesticide application, weed and herbicide management, enhanced nitrogen products, predacious beneficial insects, bin storage, and combine optimization.
“To celebrate our fifth year of CanoLAB we decided to take the event on the road,” says Roberta Galbraith, Member Relations Manager MCGA. “We wanted to make this event accessible to a new group of farmers and agronomists by bringing the event to them.”
