This is Agriculture ‑ A focus of Community Open House

Posted by Stephanie Rogers on June 22, 2015 in News, Research

We want the farm products we enjoy to be healthy and sustainably produced.

Preserving these qualities often begins deep within the soil. DR. DEREK LYNCH, associate professor and Canada Research Chair in Organic Agriculture and his team examine how different farming systems and crop management practices affect biological life above and below the soil to help farmers improve the health of their farms.

Like most organic farmers, Dr. Lynch’s mission hopes to bring consumers closer to understanding not only the science and sweat required to produce healthy crops and farms, but how farming and our food choices can benefit our environment.
