COMING EVENTS

Jan. 16 - Heavy Rains, Healthy Soils Workshop - St. Jacobs Lions Hall, 31 Parkside Drive, St. Jacobs.

Heavy rains can move soil and nutrients within fields and into nearby watercourses.

This free workshop will feature speakers from GRCA and OMAFRA as well as local producers who can provide insight and practical information on how to build soil resilience and keep soil in place.

Topics include a recap of significant local rainfall events and their impacts, water quality trends in the Grand River and Lake Erie, improving soil resilience through best management practices and resources available to help farmers manage heavy rainfalls.  

Certified crop advisors can receive three continuing education units (CEUs) through participation in this workshop.  

To register, email ruralwater@grandriver.ca or call Anne Loeffler at 1-866-900-4722 x2242.

Jan. 19 - NutrientSmart 2018 - RIM Park, Manulife Financial Sportsplex - 2001 University Ave. East, Waterloo.

A systems approach to fertility management for crop production is building a holistic nutrient management plan for a grains-based cropping system.

When, how much, source (what), where to apply nutrients in the cropping cycle to get best nutrient use efficiency and least environmental loss. What’s good economically from a profitability standpoint should be good from an environmental standpoint.

While building around a grain cropping system the principles and actions should apply in any cropping system although more complex rotations, and more horticulture focused cropping complicate the planning process as does the inclusion of organic amendments.

Jan. 20 - FarmSmart 2018 – Rozanski Hall at the University of Guelph.

Visit farmsmartconference.com for more information and to register or call the AICC Centre 1-877-424-1300.
