Agronomy and innovation are the order of the day when it comes to the Manitoba Ag Days 2020 speaker lineup.

“This year we have taken a real focus on agronomy and bringing experts in to speak on our top agronomy challenges,” Kristen Phillips, general manager, said.

Looking at the overall speakers’ program, it’s a blend of well-known speakers, familiar faces and newcomers such as:
