“One of the main things I’ve learned is to start out small and simple. If your experiment is too complex and has too many factors, you won’t be able to discern which factors are making the difference. If you start out with a cocktail mix of 12 species, you’ll never figure out which ones are doing the work. Ultimately, you may end up with a variety of species in your cover crop mix, but build that complexity slowly so you’re sure that each new plant is making a contribution.”
I was once again a part of EPIC 2019 in Lethbridge. It is put on by Career Transitions and has many stations setup for high school students to check out possible careers. Each station has a different business setup and we do a 20 minute exercise to give a taste of what our career is like.
This winter I've been noticing a big change in agricultural thinking. Or perhaps it's a small change? Its such a paradigm shift that I wonder if a lot of the reaction is - that's cool, but it'll never catch on.
