2017 Farm to Fork Student Tour
Wiebe Grain Farm
Doyle and Valerie Wiebe farm at Langham, northeast of Saskatoon. They grow several crops, including hard red spring wheat, feed barley, canola, peas, and faba beans. Valerie is an artist and Doyle works with several farmer groups including: the Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission, Western Grains Research Foundation and Agriculture in the Classroom. this tour showcased a modern-day grain farm and the different technologies and techniques the Wiebes use to take care of their land for future farmers.
Here, students learn about high clearance sprayers and how plant science innovations allow farmers to drive over their fields fewer times, which saves up to 194 million litres of diesel fuel per year. #farmfact
