-Mike Dolinski entomologist and Taurus Agricultural MarketingDirector of Science and Innovation.

-Terry Aberhart of Aberhart Farms, Aberhart Ag Solutions and Sure Growth Technologies.

-Elston Solberg from Earth Dirt Soil on reconstituting urban and oilfield landfill material into a sulphur source.

Farmers, fixing the world’s problems!


Cheyne Ogilvie

Cheyne grew up on a farm near Pense, Saskatchewan, where she continues to take in every opportunity to help her family with field operations and agronomic advice. After completing a degree in Environmental Science at the University of Lethbridge, she worked as a crop consultant in Southern Alberta assisting producers to make efficient and profitable decisions on their farms. In 2015, she furthered her education by attending the University of Saskatchewan to study enhanced efficiency nitrogen fertilizers and their ability to reduce environmental losses compared to their conventional counterpart.

 

 


Elston Solberg

Elston grew up on a dairy farm near Ryley Alberta where he learned about hard work and tenacity. Hockey, baseball and fishing were key to his youth. He knew early in life that science was his career focus.

He attended Camrose Lutheran College to play hockey where the Vikings won the Canadian Junior College Championships. Later he completed his B. Sc. in Agriculture (Agronomy, U of A) and an M. Sc. in Soils (Elemental Sulphur Fertilizer, U of A). While doing his masters he worked full time as a research associate with mentor Dr. Marvin Nyborg and continued working on many practical research projects for 8 years full time and 7 part-time after leaving to join Alberta Agriculture to work in research and extension for 17 years. During all this Elston moved back to his hometown and served on Village Council for 9 years (8 as Mayor), he was Chair of Beaver Regional Waste Management and Chair of the Joint Councils of Beaver County. Amongst this mess, Elston attempted to complete a Ph. D. on a project involving a detailed understanding of N cycling. While the thesis was not completed all the data was published adding to a still growing body of scientific and popular press. In 2002, Elston left his position as Lead of the Field Crop Development Center (Alberta Agriculture) and started Sun Mountain Inc. and began his affiliation with Agri-Trend. Elston has travelled extensively and has trained people on every continent (except Antarctica ;>) on various facets of crop production, soil science and nutrient management. He has recently established a speaking, teaching, training and publishing company called EarthDirtSoil.

Some of his favourite sayings include:
• Learn, UnLearn, ReLearn
• The Future is Already Here, It’s Just Unevenly Distributed
• Everywhere knowledge increases at the expense of understanding.
• Think Like A Plant!

Mike Dolinski

Mike Dolinski has seen a lot of things over the years as an entomologist and senior Agri-Trend coach. Opinions that come and go, scientific consensus that changes, and sometimes catchphrases that catch on, even if they are misleading. Mike is Taurus Agricultural Marketing, Director of Science and Innovation

 

 


 

Terry Aberhart 

Growing up on his family farm cultivated Terry Aberhart’s passion for agriculture and entrepreneurial growth. He worked in the agricultural industry before returning to manage farm and custom spraying operations in 2000. In 2005, Terry founded Sure Growth Technologies, a professional independent agronomy consulting company, affiliated with Agri-Trend. Terry loves agriculture, working with the farm team, and sharing his success and passion with his family.
