Speaker Spotlight: Marla Riekman

Excess moisture can negatively affect crop productivity over the long-term, through soil compaction and increased salinity. How do wet cycles decrease crop yield even after the soil has dried out? How do we best manage these conditions?

Marla Riekman, soil management specialist with Manitoba Agriculture, will talk about soil compaction, salinity and what needs to be done at Top Crop Manager’s Soil Management and Sustainability Summit, to be held Feb. 26, 2019, in Saskatoon. Before joining Manitoba Agriculture in 2007, Marla worked as the farm manager for the Manitoba Zero Tillage Research Association and as a soil conservationist with the Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration. Marla’s main focus is to provide extension on soil management issues, including tillage, salinity and compaction. Marla’s passion for soil has even crept into her personal life – she is known to create jewelry with soil in her spare time.

With a dry summer and wet harvest experienced this year, don’t miss the opportunity to learn directly from a soil enthusiast about managing wet/dry soil problems. Register today for the 2019 Soil Management and Sustainability Summit!

The Summit is approved for 7 CCA-CEUs and 7 CCSC-CEUs. Visit us on Twitter or Facebook for a chance to win your entry!
