Jeanette Gaultier

Jeanette grew up on a small hobby farm east of Winnipeg. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Agronomy from the University of Manitoba, which led her to pursue graduate studies. After studying at the Universities of Manitoba and Saskatchewan, Jeanette received her Ph.D. in Soil & Pesticide sciences also from the University of Manitoba.

She worked with the Crops Branch of Manitoba Agriculture for almost 10 years, first as the Pesticide Specialist and then and the Provincial Weed Specialist. Jeanette has since joined BASF Canada as a Technical Specialist conducting field trials and providing agronomic assessments. She loves working with a variety of crops and farmers.

Jeanette lives just outside of Notre-Dame-de-Lourdes, Manitoba with her husband and three kids, where they operate a U-Pick strawberry farm. When she’s not working, she enjoys reading, the outdoors and weed identification. Except grassy weed id – no one likes that!
