Laura Van Eerd’s name pops up when anyone in Ontario thinks about cover crop research. Van Eerd, a professor at the University of Guelph Ridgetown Campus, is well known for her soil fertility research which influences agriculture – not only in Ontario, but also nationally and internationally. Van Eerd shares what motivates her, some personal career highlights, and what she’s learned from mentors and her experiences along the way.
Fruit and Vegetable editor Stephanie Gordon chats with Van Eerd in this episode of AgAnnex Talks, the third in our series of podcasts with six Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture. IWCA is a program created by the agriculture brand teams at Annex Business Media, designed to honour women making a difference in Canada’s ag industry.
