Forage Production Systems

As a trained systems research agronomist with an interdisciplinary background, Akim loves talking to producers about crop and livestock production practices, production issues and future research project ideas. Producers drive Akim’s research activities and are a fantastic resource in generating research ideas here in the Peace Country River region and for collaborative research overseas.

Passionate about agriculture, the land and its stewards, Daryl has always appreciated his central Saskatchewan farming roots.
After completing his Bachelor of Science at the University of Saskatchewan, he went on to manage a major crop enterprise business, and most recently, start his own agriculture consulting firm, DeNovo Ag in 2012. He has obtained his Professional Agrologist ( P.Ag) designation while remaining very involved in the ag industry, both personally and professionally through volunteer contributions to a diversity of industry boards and committees.
Currently, DeNovo Ag allows him to work with producers to develop fertility plans, manage crop rotation and related inputs, manage weeds, disease and insects in an efficient and environmentally responsible manner, finishing with strategic harvest timing.
