Field Day Video Highlights: On-Farm Demonstration to Promote Cover Cropping in Blueberry Production

Posted on Friday, 16 February 2024 under Webinars and Field Days

In 2023, we hosted a collaborative field day with the BC Ministry of Agriculture and Food and E.S. Cropconsult Ltd, in partnership with the Investment Agriculture Foundation at Virasat Ag. Inc. in Langley. The field day, On-Farm Demonstration to Promote Cover Cropping in Blueberry Production, allowed farmers to explore cover cropping in the context of blueberry production, and learn about two projects under farmer Gurprit Brar’s supervision. In addition, we were joined by the BC Living Lab project and the Delta Farmland and Wildlife Trust, who spoke about the various initiatives that farmers can participate in to promote cover cropping. Fourteen farmers from around Metro Vancouver had the opportunity to learn from our host farmer, regional agrologists, and guest organizations.

This event was funded in part by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada through the BC Climate Agri-Solutions Fund delivered by the Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC. Additional funding was provided by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food as part of the OFDR project.
