I am working on a project looking at the impacts of perennial forage plantings in marginal areas and around wetlands in grain fields in the Prairie Pothole Region. This includes the impacts on soil health, bird diversity, water quality and yield and profitability for producers.
At the University of Manitoba I focused on soil health and organic cropping systems. I am interested in cropping practices that can support ecosystem functioning and reduce the negative impacts of agriculture on the environment.
