The Economics of Intercropping

The Economics of Intercropping


Sustainable Grain hosted our second educational workshop called “The Economics of Intercropping for Superior Profitability” on April 9, 2019 in Regina, Saskatchewan. The one-day conference was jampacked with sessions from Brenda Tjaden, Joel Williams of Integrated Soils and Lana Shaw from the Southeast Saskatchewan Research Farm.

The course was designed for agronomists and farmers planning to switch acres into intercrops in 2019, looking to hone their knowledge, network and tactics heading into the growing season. It was $125 to attend.

You can now view Brenda’s videos from the event for $25.

Key Learnings and Take-aways:

  • ROI Analysis of Intercrops and Green Manures

  • Case Studies of Regenerative and Organic Farm Intercrop Budgets
