Welcome to the Fall edition of the provincial newsletter, “The Innovator”
In this edition, the OSCIA gives an update on their newly launched ONFARM program, a program that works with co-operator farm sites to build a better understanding of the best management practices(bmp) through soil health and water quality analysis.
There is an article on using technology to achieve our communication goals, when physical distancing prevents face to face meetings, and an article on seeing the current pandemic situation, not as a challenge, but as an opportunity to do something new and different, as we continue to be “creative and positive“.
Farm safety and being prepared for emergencies at soil and crop events, whether virtual or in person is the subject the Heartland Regional RCC, Mary Feldskov`s article.
There are some more technical articles on “controlled drainage“ on “soil pH and liming“ and on “measuring contaminants in biosolids
St Clair Region provides an update on their Tier Two project- “a comparison of soil health analysis to yield and plant performance.“ This article pairs nicely with Tracy Myers` article on “Research do`s and don`ts`- and the 8 crucial steps to setting up a quality on-farm research project.
We hope you enjoy your latest edition of “The Innovator”
