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
