Inputs: The Podcast
Season-ready advice from the Top Crop Summit

by Gowan Canada


The Top Crop Summit, held virtually on Feb. 23 and 23, looked much different in 2021 than it had in years past. Through our virtual format, the Summit brought together experts, farmers, consultants and other industry members to share research updates and agronomic advice in advance of the 2021 growing season.

In this episode, editorial director Stefanie Croley introduces snippets of two pre-recorded interviews, available to Top Crop Summit attendees on-demand. First, Robyne Bowness Davidson, pulse research scientist at Lakeland College in Lacombe, Alta., gives a pulse crop update for Western Canada, with acreage and demand insights for field pea, lentil, faba bean and more. Then, you’ll hear a portion of ag editor Bree Rody’s interview with Albert Tenuta, field crop plant pathologist with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs based out of the University of Guelph in Ridgetown, Ont. Albert shared an update on the threat of tar spot to Canadian corn crops.

To hear more from Robyne, Albert and several other esteemed speakers, visit to register and access the event recordings, and stay tuned for our digital edition wrapping up the Summit.
