Let's Talk Soils!
With Odette Menard and Louis Robert
This past summer, the Minister of Agriculture removed Fusarium Head Blight caused by Fusarium graminearum (Fg) as a regulated pest under the Agricultural Pest Act. With a low occurrence of the Fg in the Peace Region, your Agricultural Service Board is seeking input from Peace Region producers as to how they would like the pest to be monitored, reported on and if applicable, controlled. Your participation is anonymous, and results will assist your municipality in deciding what action, if any, is taken regarding Fg. Click here to access the survey
NPARA is pleased to welcome Research Technician Mathieu Enger to our Team!
Born and raised in Indiana, USA, Mathieu had always an appreciation for agriculture ingrained in his subconscious. An upbringing that favoured hands on skills and intuition-development led to a pursuit of Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. After 2 years of studies, Mathieu transferred to McGill University and enrolled in Bioresource Engineering. It was during his bachelor studies here that the underlying agrarian admiration was realized and pursued. Coursework and engagements in agricultural field research dealing in soil greenhouse gas emissions, drainage, and fertilization rates proved an inherent foundation for further such projects. With NPARA, Mathieu intends to broaden his agronomic knowledge, familiarize himself in farm operations, and put forth engineering principles and processes to facilitate research pursuits. Long-term, he hopes to establish the economic usage of instrumentation and precision technology for farmers whilst establishing greater sustainability and long-term prosperity. Welcome to the team, Matt!
