CAMA Saskatchewan Agronomy 101

The purpose of Agronomy 101 is to provide attendees (who may have little to no ag background), a very basic understanding of agriculture and food production (crop protection, technology advancements, yearly cycles and current issues/concerns).  The overall goal is to increase participant awareness of agriculture and offer them personal insight into the industry from a variety of perspectives (grower, retailer, agronomist and government extension.)

This full-day event will take place on Wednesday, November 28 at the Saskatoon German Cultural Centre with an expected 65 agri-marketers, communicators and professionals in attendance.  

Date:  Wednesday, November 28, 2018
