International speaker at Corowa GRDC Grains Research Update

Jordan and Jennifer Lindgren of Lindgren Farms, Canada have won the 2018 Saskatchewan Outstanding Young Farmers of the Year award for their unique ability of applying R&D to their farm to drive farm business profitability.

Lindgren Farms is a grain and oilseed farm that works diligently at maximising production for these crops, while minimising cost of production. They do this with the help of field scale trials that identify products, genetics and practices that work on their farm. By combining these methods, with the latest advancements in technology, they continue to meet and exceed their production goals.

In his presentation Jordan will discuss their approach to using research to improve their bottom line.
