    IWCA series: Karen Tanino

    IWCA series: Karen Tanino

    When Karen Tanino was hired by the University of Saskatchewan’s college of agriculture and bioresources in 1988, she was only the second female faculty member. Now, Tanino is a professor of plant sciences at the university and leads or is involved in many other projects concerning a variety of crops, environmental conditions, and extension and outreach activities; her self-confidence and drive to figure things out and move forward, as well as the support of her male colleagues, have made her a force to be reckoned with in Canadian agriculture.
    In this episode of AgAnnex Talks, Tanino, one of the 2022 Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture, speaks with Fruit and Vegetable and Top Crop Manager East editor Alex Barnard about recognizing our influence on others (and vice versa) and the responsibility that comes with it, the value of a broad knowledge base, and the optimism inherent to agriculture.

    IWCA series: Mary Ruth McDonald

    IWCA series: Mary Ruth McDonald

    Mary Ruth McDonald has always been interested in plants, which led her to the University of Guelph, the study of plant pathology, and an interest in crop protection. But it was a summer job as a pest management scout in Ontario’s Holland Marsh that clarified what she wanted to do with those interests. Between her work as an OMAFRA pest management specialist and as a professor in the department of plant agriculture at the University of Guelph, McDonald has spent almost her entire career focusing on vegetable cropping in the unique agricultural production conditions of the Holland Marsh, acting as a bridge between research and application in the field.
    In this episode of AgAnnex Talks, McDonald, one of the 2022 Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture, speaks with Fruit and Vegetable and Top Crop Manager East editor Alex Barnard about trying new things, rolling with the punches and seeing research in action.

    GroundBreakers series: Jeremy Meiners

    GroundBreakers series: Jeremy Meiners

    Jeremy Meiners might have been comfortable in lecture halls and research labs for the rest of his career – he obtained his PhD at Washington University at a time when he says many of its graduates were going into full-time academia careers. But Meiners pivoted and combined his passions of farming and design and joined AGREM, his father’s software company.
    Now, Meiners not only applies those passions day-to-day at AGREM, but also works hands-on with farmers in the field and furthers his knowledge on best practices and conservation. He has been part of initiatives such as webinars and drainage demonstrations in an effort to boost contractors’ know-how – and enhance his own understandings.

    IWCA series: Heather Watson

    IWCA series: Heather Watson

    While Heather Watson didn’t grow up on a farm, most of her youth she was drawn to agriculture, nature and farming, whether it was through her part-time job at a local farm supply store or living near farmland. After initially obtaining her Master’s degree in English literature, Watson pivoted her focus to farm business management, establishing herself in Eastern Ontario – and never looked back. Now as executive director of Farm Management Canada, Watson focuses on promoting farmers’ leadership development and elevating the voices of traditionally underrepresented groups in farming.
    In this episode of AgAnnex Talks, Watson, one of the 2022 Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture, speaks with Manure Manager and Drainage Contractor editor Bree Rody about what she’s learned about work-life balance, the importance of mentorship, uplifting others’ voices and more.
