If you were to compare agriculture in Western Canada to other areas of the globe you would soon notice a distinctive difference. Here in Canada, our short growing season has produced many of the world’s best agricultural innovators, technological advancements and agricultural leaders. Why, because if we’re not on the top of our game, the blood sweat and tears poured into crop production would be lost, but not forgotten.
