Lynda Nichol, executive director of Manitoba Association of Watersheds, discusses the ‘Living Lab’ project and the important role of watersheds in sustainable agriculture; sunflower is not only Ukraine’s national flower, it’s also one of that country’s largest exports. But with Ukraine currently repelling a Russian invasion, we hear from John Sandbakken of the National Sunflower Association if North American oilseed producers can fill the gap left by war; plus, Sean Pratt with the Western Producer reports on European Union efforts to expand its version of country-of-origin labeling to include Canadian durum wheat. Hosted by Ed White.
