Jay Toews is a conventional and organic grower in Peace Country, Alberta (Canada). Raised on a farm and always looking to improve his growing practices, Jay describes to us his passion for agriculture: “Driving to work in the morning and seeing a good lush crop. I think that's one of the better parts of farming. […] You feel successful when the crop shows well. That's something I enjoy.”
"We started using MYKE® PRO [now named AGTIV®] back 10-15 years ago on our certified organic [crops]. We used it on oats and flax and we felt it was beneficial to our end yield. We started moving a couple years ago into trialing the AGTIV® PULSES (now named AGTIV® THRIVE™ PEA & LENTIL) on our field peas and we did use a little bit of AGTIV® FIELD CROPS (now named AGTIV® REACH™) again on organic [crops]. And we've seen good results.”
“The first year that we were using the AGTIV® PULSES (now named AGTIV® THRIVE™ PEA & LENTIL), we did a field scale trial with 4-5 different inoculant products and AGTIV® PULSES (now named AGTIV® THRIVE™ PEA & LENTIL) showed very well in our results. It was actually the leader in our field scale trial.”
