Jason Koivisto, born 1974 in Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, completed a degree in agricultural science from the University of Guelph (1995-1999) and his Ph.D. from Coventry University in conjunction with the Royal Agricultural College (RAC) (1999-2002). For this he researched the use of semi-leafless peas as a companion crop for the establishment of red clover or lucerne. He has also been involved in research into the agronomic potential of birdsfoot trefoil, red clover, sainfoin and forage soybeans in the United Kingdom, and has also been comparing methods of fibre analysis with forages of different tannin concentrations. He has co-authored a paper for the FAO Expert Consultation on Protein Supply for the Animal Feed Industry. While working on his Ph.D. he has produced an extension website for the Forage Legume Special Interest Group of British Grassland Society (FLG). Electronic copies of his and other FLG contributor’s publications are available from either the (FLG) website or by contacting him at RR#2, Desbarats, Ontario, Canada, P0R 1E0, kkoivisto@sympatico.ca or jason.koivisto@ndm.gov.on.ca
