MARA completed harvesting of all plots in early October and are currently working on data analyses and report writing. Copies of the printed annual research & extension report will be available at the 2017 AGM on February 9th. We look forward to share the results of some of our newer projects, such as our Wheat and Canola Irrigation Trial (a partnership with Alberta Canola Producers Commission, and Alberta Wheat Commission), our Organic Oats Variety Trial (a partnership with Organic Alberta, Grain Millers and Prairie Grain Initiative), and our Silage Variety Trials. We are also pleased to be adding another year of valuable data to some ongoing research work, such as the Cereal, and Pulse Regional Variety Trials (a partnership with the Government of Alberta).
If you have an idea for a research project that you would like to try on your land in 2017, please let us know. MARA is always happy to partner with local producers to find management practices and varieties that work best in this area.
