Durum Summit 2020
Canada contributes a major share to the global trade of durum wheat. The quality of Canadian durum is highly prized by domestic and international buyers. Durum production is being challenged by the devastating effects of fusarium head blight and insects such as midge. Crop rotations have changed to include more pulses and canola. Consumers are concerned about pesticide residues. Integration of the latest cropping technologies offers opportunities to reduce the environmental footprint and increase sustainability.
The Durum Summit will provide updates on matching genetics to demand, responding to environmental pressures, and growing a more profitable crop.
