Peace Region

Dive into the work of the North Peace Applied Research Association, where they explore intercropping with legumes in a cereal cash crop setting. Head to SR Farms, an organic grain farm, and discover their cover cropping practices, carefully chosen after years of experimentation. Next, witness Jackknife Creek Land & Cattle’s multi-species swath grazing cover cropping practices and their positive impact on herd and soil health.

South Okanagan

Join us at the Summerland Research and Development Centre, where Dr. Kirsten Hannam shares the trials in progress with a woolly thyme permanent ground cover within fruit tree production, as an alternative to common bare strip or bark mulch under-tree management. Then, peek into Kalala Organic Estate Winery’s innovative inter-alleyway chickpea cover crop trial, which serves a dual purpose as both cover crop and cash crop.

Fraser Valley/ Lower Mainland

Lastly, visit Holberg Farm, a dairy farm trialing the practice of relay cropping with Italian ryegrass within their corn silage crops, for improving soil health while providing nutritious on-farm feed for the cattle.


Following the screening of these videos, farmers and researchers will be available to answer your questions about their specific trials or practices.
