Event Description

Many things have changed this year, but one thing that hasn’t? The dedication many Ontario residents have for helping people around the world who are hungry.

The concert features Naomi Bristow, a country music singer and yodeler from Beeton, Ontario.

In past years, the concert has been held live and in-person in Meaford. While it’s not how anyone would have preferred, Bristow and Reinders are optimistic the show will still be entertaining.
As Bristow points out, “We will make the best of current situations...the show must go on!”

For his part, Reinders is excited to see the show come together, and to bring people together virtually around support for a shared cause. “Knowing that people who care about their global neighbours will be coming together, even virtually, to make a difference is something to celebrate,” he says.

Anyone interested is invited to visit www.foodgrainsbank.ca/news/world-food-day-virtual-concert/ to learn more or to make a donation.

Prairie Crop Disease Monitoring Network: End-of-season assessment of the ascochyta/mycosphaerella complex of field pea

During June and July, crop scouting for the ascochyta/mycosphaerella complex in field pea is critical for assessing risk and gauging the need for and timing of an in-crop fungicide application.  However, late season crop scouting is also important as it can be used to assess the prevalence, severity and impact of these disease issues.
