Sessions

John has served as the soil fertility extension specialist for Manitoba Agriculture and previously with Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food in extension and field crop research. He was "book-schooled" in Crop Science from the University of Guelph and in Soil Science for Purdue University. He has had 23 years of "in-field schooling" from patient Manitoba farmers. John hosts the MB Soil Fertility Advisory Committee which reviews research to develop provincial soil fertility guidelines. John is a proud Certified Crop Advisor and was recognized as International CCA of the Year in 2014. John’s odd obsession is hunting the officially designated state and provincial soils – of which he has captured 41 states, 8 provinces and 2 African countries. He is a proud cheerleader for Manitoba's own provincial soil - the Newdale Clay Loam.
