Farmers Afua & Roberta

Dr. Afua Adobea Mante is an Assistant Professor of Soil Physical Processes in the Department of Soil Science at the University of Manitoba. She came to Canada in 2013 to pursue graduate studies, but her agricultural education began much earlier than that on her family’s farm in Ghana. Her passion for agricultural research is directly influenced by her life experience. She understands the need to find innovative solutions to the challenges faced by Canadian farmers, while reducing environmental impacts and working towards food security for all. Manitoba farmers, like Roberta Galbraith, share that passion. It’s why they support organizations like the Manitoba Canola Growers, a farmer directed industry association, that funds science-based research projects with a goal of continually improving the sustainability of Manitoba canola farms.
