Purpose and Background of Survey

Participants do not need to have grown a cover crop in 2020 to take part. PhD student at the University of Manitoba are researching the use of cover crops by farmers across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. One part of this research is conducting the Prairie cover crop survey. The survey was created as little information specific to the Prairies is available to farmers interested in growing cover crops. The information gained will be compiled into annual reports which will be made freely available to farmers. The aim is put cover cropping in context for Prairie farmers and create a tool which can be used as part of farmer’s decision-making process. The report will be broken down by Province, farm type (organic, livestock etc.) and cash crop to ensure the report is as relevant as possible to its readers. We welcome participants who are thinking of using cover crops as well as those who grew a cover crop.

Purpose and Background of Survey

KAP is working with the Prairie Climate Centre (PCC) in order to understand specific needs regarding climate services for farmers. A climate services network for the Prairie region is under development and KAP is looking to Manitoba farmers to provide input into what services will be useful as we continue to build resiliency within the agriculture industry. Examples of climate services include mapping, forecasting, workshops, and any other useful tools that farmers are using or would like to use to adapt to a changing climate. PCC is a Winnipeg based organization that communicates the science, impacts and risks of climate change through maps, documentaries, research reports, training and outreach.
