2020 Canola Community Challenge winners

quotes

As a younger person, I never really saw farming as a career choice. For our family, it was always a part of who we were and how we chose to live as opposed to how to make a living. I suppose I saw farming as a lifestyle that I was always very fond of. (cont.)

In 2008, I was wearing my InVigor canola jacket the night I met my future girlfriend, Wendy. Without knowing me, she walked right up and asked me, “How many bags of canola seed did you have to buy to get that jacket?” I answered back, “90”. (cont.)

We plant InVigor every year because of its consistent performance. This year we grew InVigor Health L258HPC and had an excellent crop - one that we were surprised by and exceeded our expectations, given the soil profile and conditions in that particular field. (cont.)

We have been growing InVigor since the 5020 days. Since then our farming practices have changed lots. We have slowly been moving from swathing everything to fall of 2020 swathing only 40%. (cont.)
