Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

The members of the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program (AALP) Class 16 began to arrive at Toronto’s Pearson Airport starting around 8 pm on Monday, February 13th. By 10 pm those who hadn’t travelled ahead were catching up with each other – sharing laughs and letting the anticipation for our international adventure to begin.

Looking at the class, it is incredible to think that just over 18 months ago we were all strangers and now we are close friends looking forward to what the next two weeks will bring.


We were all impressed with the seat arrangements on Air EVA. When you think of modern air travel and the thoughts of a 16-hour flight (Toronto to Taiwan), being impressed with seat arrangements is a rather critical component to have a good start to our trip.


The flight made quick work of February 14th as when we hit the International Date Line we were instantly in February 15th. Our adventure is underway and memories are being created.

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.
