Event Description

Considering growing a new crop? Not sure what crops can be grown on your farm? Want to find out what is ‘hot” right now? Growing specialty crops presents some unique challenges compared to traditional crops. These include: few options for pest management; minimal agronomic information; undeveloped or small markets; and specialized equipment. Our facilitators, Evan Elford and Jim Todd from OMAFRA, will review new, specialty or non-traditional crops that are proving to have merit in this area of Ontario. The crops to be discussed will include: quinoa, grain amaranth, teff, edamame, industrial oilseeds and energy/fibre crops.

Date: Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Time: 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Cost: $10/person.

Pre-Register By: Friday March 13th, 2015

Fire Blight Infection Risk Continues

Warmer temperatures and rain forecast this week put apple and pear orchards in bloom at risk of fire blight infection The fire blight prediction maps for apple and pear continue to be updated as more orchards in the earlier regions of the province enter into bloom. High to extreme infection risk is predicted for many regions in the southwest this week with rain in the forecast. Management will be critical during this time particularly if there is active fire blight in your orchard or neighbourhood.
