U of G students' soybean-based liqueur is a real winner

5th Bean liqueur captures the 23rd annual Project Soy competition to create new products from Ontario soybeans Fermented tofu whey doesn’t sound like something that could be turned into a tasty alcoholic beverage, but a group of University of Guelph students have done just that.

Russell municipal councillor recognized for environmental good deeds

I met André Brisson in the bustling lobby of a hotel in Toronto’s Chinatown district. The Russell County Councillor joked with me about the notorious city traffic. He’d come for the Royal Winter Fair, where his daughters were showing calves. Brisson comes from a long line of dairy farmers. He’s the fifth generation of Brissons to carve out a living on the family farm in Embrun. It’s a small, rural community of about 8,000 residents. Even so, with Ottawa only a 30-minute drive away, it’s far from isolated. Embrun’s residents have noted the ever-encroaching suburbs, he tells me. As things around the rural community become less green, André began to think more about trees.

Looking for Tillers? Consider Early Season Nitrogen Management!

This past fall brought challenges for many growers. Prolonged wet weather delayed soybean harvest and pushed winter wheat seeding into late October and early November for some. Before the snow fell, many fields had not yet emerged. While the seed did germinate and vernalize, the late planting meant no tiller development. As a result, nitrogen management will be important in order to maximize the yield potential of those late planted fields.

Statement from the Finance Minister on the 2019 Federal Budget

"Federal budget confirms the federal government does not share Ontario's vision for making our province, let alone our country, Open for Business and Open for Jobs, and threatens manufacturing jobs and small businesses in Ontario.
