Alexandr Alba

Soil & Weeds Workshop

My name is Alexandr Alba. I am originally from southern part of Ukraine. I was raised in a family of agricultural engineers, so I was passionate about agriculture since childhood. I recieved my Bachelors in Agronomy and Crop Science in the capital of Ukraine in Kiev in 2015. In September 2015 I came to Canada for the purpose of doing reseach related to sustainable organic agriculture with Dr. Steven Shirtliffe from the Department of Plant Science. I am now a second year Master student in area of Weed Ecology and Agronomy at the University of Saskatchewan. Currently, I am working on the project examining the effect of mechanical weed (rotary hoeing, harrowing and inter-row cultivation) and crop seeding rate on yield and weed suppression in organically grown pea and lentil.
