ADOPT Demonstration of AC Yellowhead alfalfa persistence and performance in Saskatchewan forage stands.

Producers discuss the merits of AC Yellowhead AC Yellowhead on the right.

On July 6th 2015 our group met at Dave and Alva Blechinger's farm 5 miles north of McGee. The first stop was at an Agriculture Demonstration of Practices and Technologies (ADOPT) site. The goal of the ADOPT program is to accelerate the transfer of knowledge to Saskatchewan producers and ranchers. Funding comes through the Growing Forward Two program.

The ADOPT program will provide funding to help producer groups demonstrate and evaluate new agricultural practices and technologies at the local level. The results of successful trials can then be adopted by farming operations in the region.
