Event Description

Join Grey County SCIA for their Crop Walk on Tuesday July 18th 2023 at Ken Mitchell’s farm in Annan. The day will kick off with a gathering time at 9:30 am and the tour starting at 10:00 am. The morning will feature three soil pits, a cover crops discussion, and soil test results with SWAT mapping. More details coming soon regarding the afternoon portion of the tour.

Crop walks are an annual event for Grey Soil and Crop and play a critical part in the SCIA’s agenda of education, innovation, and knowledge transfer. They are an opportunity for farmers to get together with neighbours to share news or ideas and present a time when industry experts can be brought to the field for hands on learning.

Reach out to info@greyagservices.ca if you’d like more information, and stay tuned for updates to the schedule!

For some, the highlight of the day might be information shared by an expert. For others it might be catching up with a neighbour’s news over a pizza lunch and refreshments, sponsored by Midwest Co-op and Sprucedale Agromart. Whatever the draw, it promises to be a great day for all!
The crop walk is free for members of Grey County SCIA, and $10.00 for all others who would like to attend. They do ask for pre-registration in order to have accurate lunch numbers, so if readers are interested in joining in, please email: lorie@greyagservices.ca.
