Controlled Traffic Farming Alberta (CTFA) has launched a website and web-based message board discussion group on controlled traffic farming.
“It is part of our plan to build a network of people interested in controlled traffic. CTF is pretty new to Alberta so sharing ideas and questions among growers, agronomists, equipment dealers and researchers will be important,” project leader Peter Gamache said in a release.
The Controlled Traffic Farming Alberta Message Board is a forum to share your questions and experiences about controlled traffic, guidance, inter-row seeding, equipment, agronomics and other issues and observations. During the short time the message board has been operating we have some good discussions going on interrow seeding and disk seeders.
Producers can sign up for the forum at www.controlledtrafficfarming.org and following the link. Registration is required. The website also has some links to other controlled traffic farming websites.
CTFA will be hosting some field tours this summer and posting information about them on the web site. It encourages farmers already practising CTF or interrow seeding or who are interested these new concepts to all Peter Gamache at 780-720-4346 or email him at [email protected]
