My own perception is that they are very willing to work with Ontario Producers, but having said that, it was just a preliminary meeting. I believe, we still have a very long way to go in educating consumers and yes, even though the chain stores are in the business of food, they need to be educated as well. Just my own personal opinion though. My discussion regarding the staining on the onions is a perfect example. Onions are grown outside, they are subject to Mother Nature, sometimes no matter how good a Farmer you are, things happen that are just out of your control. This NEEDS to be understood by those in the food industry. Just because it doesn't "look pretty", doesn't make it a bad product. It's like judging a book by its cover. This meeting was a good "first step" though.

Crop Report – Week of April 16th, 2018

The 2018 season is obviously off to a slow start following a significant storm system that brought freezing rain, ice pellets and snow to much of the province on the April 14th weekend. As of April 18th, it’s easy to find fields that are still snow covered (Figure 1). The weather and soil conditions will eventually turn more favourable and when it does field activities will begin at a rapid pace. The following is an overview of where crop conditions are at so far and management considerations for the upcoming 2018 crop.
