Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

Northern Ontario we have never seen him here, yet he represents, our interests? pay for his government, we have one poor rep that trys to cover an area the size of France. Have resources that are raped, wasted and get told that farm land will be locked away to save some rain deer. Forgod sake.  Just simple government services, like getting a licence, my photo licence will take 5 weeks to recieve, inquire about where my bountry ends and starts two months so far after paying $50 bucks plus GST. We get a fedral government public servant visit on a Wednesday twice a month and gain you have to wait weeks to get a answer or result. I believe a certain country once went to war, with the cry no taxation without representation, ring a bell.

 

I saw a model farm today at Kasapusking the beef research center, a thousand areas of pirma farming land yet saw no cows? Told they just test the quality of the meat there, saw at least 20 cars, which I gathered were government employees. Yet you travel from there to Hearst a distance of 100 Kms and saw two old dairy cows drink out of a ditch on a hobbyfarm.  A part from Hobbyfarms, old farm derolic houses, and farmland that was once prosperess laid to waste.  I went on the net to find more information about the facility found nothing, yet a fantasic building the ag department has in Guelph. How many other facilities that house armies of public servants and scientist around the proverance that do research, with no direct benefit to the farmer, yet have a government that has agenga of sell the farm to foreign interest at tax payer expense in the form of GST on food.

I don't think too many others would disagree with you....agriculture is a lower priority on both the federal and provincial government's agenda...

As far as government employees at facilities....I think if you asked...there are alot few government agri people on the ground as the ag budgets keep getting tightened downwards.

Northern Ontario has vast potential but it will be market/business development opportunities that will help it achieve growth and prosperity...not help from the government.

In reference to the North you are right and I agree totally. Yet they take our taxes and demand we follow envorimental laws, that are totally inquate locking up crown land in National parks.

We got the same rabble in Australia running the country, retard ideas with no idea of the mess they course,and short term policies, three quarters of the money disppears before it get to the project in admin. I thought when I came here they would have a bit of nowse. I guess thats why they have g20 meetings, to exchange ideas how we going to screw Mr Plebe this week. Bought a car you can't get insurance for, yet it is deemed road worthy, only want third party the insurance companies quoted me $4,700 cheapest 3,000 for 12months. The thing cost me 2,000, you cross the border in Quebec $400 and the government, runs their third party scheme. But this government tells you private competion is a good thing. O well thats my rant for tonight starting to sound like a pom.

Improved connectivity coming soon from CNH

As real-time digital connectivity from the field to the cloud increases in importance for farmers with the move to widespread precision farming, regular cellular service providers haven’t really been fully up to the task of supporting it in every location. Most farmers have fields in at least some areas where cellular service is reduced or non-existent. Earlier this year, John Deere announced it was partnering with Elon Musk’s SpaceX Starlink service to eventually ensure machines have uninterrupted service via satellite where cellular systems are weak. In late April, the CNH brands Case IH and New Holland followed suit. The company announced it has partnered with Intelsat to provide uninterrupted connectivity via satellite. Like Deere, CNH will begin by offering the satellite link for its equipment in Brazil where cellular service covers only a small fraction of the country. “It will start in Brazil in the third quarter of this year,” says Marc Kermish, CNH’s chief digital and inf

Canadian durum looks good but troubles lurk elsewhere

Canada’s durum crop is off to a good start, but there are problems in many other regions, says an analyst. Farmers in southwestern Saskatchewan and southeastern Alberta received much-needed rainfall this spring. “They think this is the best start they’ve had in five or six years,” said Neil Townsend, chief analyst with GrainFox. Agriculture Canada estimates farmers planted 6.34 million acres of the crop and will produce 5.66 million tonnes. That would result in a total supply of 6.13 million tonnes, a 37 per cent improvement over last year. Townsend thinks supplies could top 6.5 million tonnes if farmers achieve the same average yield as 2022-23, which was 35.9 bushels per acre. That would necessitate finding an additional one million tonnes of export demand compared to last year. Farmers in the United States planted 2.03 million acres of durum, a 21 per cent increase over last year. That crop is also off to a good start. The big question in the durum market is what will Turkey

Growing More with Less: IMF Highlights Efficiency in Agriculture with Agritech Advances

USA News Group – Food production is rapidly evolving. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) underscores the urgent need to "grow more with less," emphasizing efficiency in agriculture. Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the sector by developing new crop varieties, providing vital soil data, and utilizing precision drones for fertilizers and pesticides. To meet the rising demands for sustainable agriculture, agritech innovations are accelerating. The global agritech market, valued at $24.4 billion in 2023, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.33%, reaching $49.2 billion by 2031, according to Adroit Market Research. This expansion is fueled by advances in precision farming, biotechnological applications, and the integration of AI and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, with agritech companies leading the way to ensure future food security, including developments from Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. (CSE: BEE) (OTCQB: BEVVF), Bunge Global SA (NYSE: BG), Archer

Saskatchewan farm finds ways to survive suring sustained dry conditions

If drought relief doesn’t fall from above, grow it from below. That’s how one Saskatchewan farm has survived and thrived during the past five years. The non-profit Soil Health Academy (SHA) announced that Gavelin Farms will host its three-day school, Jun. 25 to 27 at McCord, Sask. to show other farmers how to do the same. Michael Thiele is a regenerative farming consultant and instructor for the upcoming school. “Across 2,000 acres of pasture and hay ground, 2,000 acres of cash crops, and 200 acres of carefully curated cover crops, the Gavelin family has implemented regenerative practices that have led to improved profits and resiliency through protracted periods of drought,” Thiele said. According to Thiele, third-generation farmers Calvin and Marla Gavelin have embraced their role as stewards of the land, making decisions that contribute to the broader community. “Those attending the upcoming school will see, firsthand, how practical management based on the soil health principle

Former Sask. Stockyards Company fined $250K for fatal workplace incident

Spiritwood Stockyards has been fined a total of $325,000 for two workplace related incidents, including one that resulted in a man’s death. The case was heard on Tuesday at Spiritwood Provincial Court. A guilty plea was entered to sect. 7.- 6(1) which states that if there is a risk of injury to the head of a worker, an employer or contractor shall provide approved industrial protective headwear and require a worker to use it. For this offence, which resulted in serious injury to the worker, the company was fined $75,000. With respect to the more serious of the two offences, the one that involved a worker’s death, a guilty plea was entered to sect. 9-2 (2). This requires the employer or contractor to ensure that workers use a fall protection system at a temporary or permanent work area if a worker may fall three metres or more; or there is a possibility of injury if a worker falls less than three metres. For this offence, the company was fined $250,000. Dean Horn, 47, passed away on
