Carlo Van Herk leads the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) strip till canola project. Call Carlo if you have any questions about seeding methods, tillage or seed canola.
Carlo spends his time working the plots with Mike, Gurbir, Trevor, and the summer students. He joined us as a student in 2019 and enjoys learning about crop research so much, he stayed. He's always easy to find because he's a head taller than everyone!
He's gaining knowledge about novel crops and quickly showed his value stemming from six years experience on a dairy farm that included field work. He understands equipment operation, care, and maintenance.
His education includes a concentration in GIS and a minor in economics.
