Dr. Claudia Sheedy and Farming Smarter teamed up to talk about building a biobed to manage pesticide rinsates on your farm. Farming Smarter has created two biobeds already, one for our own farm that is often included in tours, as well as a biobed trailer that can travel across southern Alberta for people to copy or use as a template for creating their own! Along with this, Farming Smarter has compiled a parts list available to everyone interested in undertaking this project!
