About Daphnée Ferland

Daphnée is from all over Canada : originally from Québec, spent her childhood in Maryfield, SK, and now resides in Hudson Bay, SK. She will be going into her third year of an undergraduate degree in Crop Sciences at the University of Saskatchewan. Daphnée decided to broaden her horizons and has taken courses in all aspects of agriculture (animals, crops, bees, horticulture). Her favourite subject remains plants, where Daphnée has found her love for improving nitrogen use efficiency and reducing GHG emissions. Her background as a farmer’s daughter has led her to see the progress breeders and scientists have brought to the crop production, and she hopes become a part of the process. After her degree, Daphnée plans to go back to the farm to apply the knowledge from the USRA program and her BSc. In her spare time, she can be found working out, riding her horse, and playing with her dogs.
