IWCA Series: Ellen Sparry

If you work with cereals in Ontario, odds are you’ve heard of Ellen Sparry – she’s a go-to person for cereals research and production questions, according to “Wheat Pete” Johnson. Sparry is the general manager of C&M Seeds in Palmerston, Ont., as well as wheat registration co-ordinator and performance test co-ordinator for the Ontario Cereal Crops Committee and chair of the newly formed Seeds Canada. Even beyond that, she’s a keen mentor and advocate for the importance of communication.

AgAnnex associate editor Alex Barnard chats with Sparry in this episode of the IWCA series for AgAnnex Talks, discussing challenges, lessons learned and what the future holds for agriculture.

IWCA is a program created by the agriculture brands at Annex Business Media, designed to recognize women who make a difference in Canada’s ag industry and provide them with a platform to share their knowledge, triumphs and advice.
