Representing Alberta Wheat & Barley Farmers.

Sheri Strydhorst Ph.D.
Agronomy Research Specialist

Hello wheat and barley research community!

I know many of you from previous collaborations, conferences, or as colleagues. In February 2021, I joined the Alberta Wheat and Barley Commissions as their Agronomy Research Specialist. One of my responsibilities is to build stronger relationships with the researchers that we fund. I provide support for developing funding proposals to help align producer-funded research with grower needs, while upholding strong scientific rigor. I also assist with extension of research findings so that they resonate well with farmers leading to increased adoption.

To support our valued scientists, I regularly send out “Shop Talk with Sheri” emails with various types of information. These research scientist-focused communications provide information about upcoming webinars, funding calls, and research priorities. My ultimate goal is to support the research community to deliver the best science to help Alberta wheat and barley growers be more successful.

Members of our research scientist community are at different stages of their careers. Some of the communications will be more relevant to different scientists based on their career stage and backgrounds, but I hope that all scientists will find value in building this relationship with the commissions regardless of their career stage.

As you work through funding ideas, proposal development, and eventually extending research findings, please reach out to me if I can be of assistance. I would also like to highlight that my efforts are supported by the commissions’ fantastic research team: Lauren Comin, Director of Research; David Simbo, Research Program Manager; Jeremy Boychyn, Agronomy Research Extension Specialist; and Brian Kennedy, Grower Relations and Extension Manager.

I look forward to working with you over the coming years and funding cycles!

Sincerely,
Sheri Strydhorst, Ph.D.
Agronomy Research Specialist
