This year’s meeting is going virtual…again!

The Manitoba Soil Science Society (MSSS) holds an Annual General Meeting to provide industry professionals and academics a place to share their research findings and network. This year’s plenary session theme is “Dealing with Drought”.

The event will be held entirely online. 

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Linda Gorim, Assistant Professor and WGRF Chair in Cropping Systems at the University of Alberta.

Keynote Abstract

Managing soils after droughts
Droughts are common in the Canadian Prairies dating back to the 1920s. Forecast points to unpredictable and variable drought events that will make crop production more complex leading to yield reduction. Producers feel helpless during drought events as the duration and intensity are usually unknown. The season following a drought, producers have to manage their production systems in a manner that minimizes risks and enhance profitability. This talk discusses drought characteristics, their effects on crop production and soils, some actions that can be employed by crop producers with respect to inputs and perspectives from other regions around the world.

Keynote Biography

Dr. Linda Y. Gorim is an Assistant Professor and Western Grains Research Foundation Chair in Cropping Systems at the University of Alberta. Her research interest lies in the development of novel cropping systems that are resource efficient, profitable and sustainable in the long term. She is also interested in the training and experiential exposure of agronomy students so they are equipped to handle the plethora of challenges currently and in the future, will be faced by crop producers. Her career began when she was awarded a scholarship to do a master’s degree in Agriculture, Food security and Natural Resource Management at the University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart Germany by the Stiftung Fiat Panis, Ulm Germany. Her background growing up in challenging conditions in West Africa and education in the West is the driving force behind her research work geared at impacting lives.
