My name is Becky Reynolds and I am from a mixed farming operation consisting of cattle, grain, and potatoes just outside of Carberry, Manitoba. I spent the previous summer working with Munro Farm Supplies at MacGregor and I am very excited to be back this year for a full time position as a Sales Agronomist! I have recently graduated and received an Agriculture Diploma from Olds College in Alberta. Before I went to college I spent a year working on the family farm with my father which is something I strongly enjoy helping out with whenever I can. I am happy to be back in Manitoba and joining the Shur-Gro Munro Farm team in MacGregor. I look forward to working with the staff, as well as the growers in the surrounding area!

This product controls roundup ready canola at the 1-3 leaf stage along with a list of […]
