Wild Oat

November 25, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Wild oat has long been a problem in organic field crop production in the Canadian Prairie. Fortunately, science provides some solutions and much of this science comes from Dr. Shirtliffe’s lab at the University of Saskatchewan.

Steve Shirtliffe, Ph.D.

 Steve Shirtliffe is a Professor in the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Saskatchewan. His primary area of research is field crop agronomy in which he has been conducting field-based research for over 20 years, gaining extensive experience in small plot crop agronomy.  His position involves teaching, research and outreach in the areas of agronomy and weed control. Dr. Shirtliffe’s past and current research projects have focused on the ecology and control of volunteer canola, cereal and pulse and oilseed agronomy, non-herbicidal weed control and agronomic applications of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones.


Moderator: Katherine Stanley

 Katherine is a Research Associate in the Natural Systems Agriculture Lab at the University of Manitoba. She has a master’s degree in Plant Science from the University of Saskatchewan where she worked with Steve Shirtliffe on weed management in organic systems. Katherine led the 3-year long “Organic agronomist training program” where over 150 Prairie agronomists were trained in organic production systems, including use of the “Nutrient management tool” developed by UM’s Joanne Thiessen Martens. Katherine has previously worked with the Manitoba Organic Alliance as an Extension Specialist.
