No presentation, John was part of the farmer panel.

John Burns received a PhD in chemistry from the University of Saskatchewan and spent several years in research and teaching. Since 2002 he has been farming full-time.

He diversifies his farming operation as much as possible, growing many different crops and has found that good crop rotations are an important part of land stewardship and in almost all cases, for the long term, are necessary and are usually the most profitable.

Good rotations are also a method of reducing financial risk on our farm. John has the advantage of farming in an area that has three soil zones in one rural municipality. This along with using a variety of crops allows him and other farmers to utilize machinery and manpower effectively.
