Sudbury Summer Crop

Farmers from across North Eastern Ontario and other interested persons are invited to join Sudbury District Soil & Crop Improvement Association for a crop tour on August 6 in the “Valley” area (north of the City of Sudbury).

We will gather at Sudbury Downs race track between 9:30 and 10:00 A.M. Buses will leave sharp at 10 to take us to our first stop to view a “Green Mines/Green Energy” project. This reclamation project features crops being grown for energy production on mine tailings which have been amended with paper mill sludge.  Our lunch stop will be at Beaulieu Farms which is a berry and produce operation. Next we will visit a large potato farm which includes a processing and packing operation.

The final visit of the afternoon is to an elk farm. This farm is also the location of a Sudbury Crop Improvement Association project in 2008 which featured various soil amendments. There will be an opportunity to see if any of the visual effects of these amendments are still evident. We then finish the day at “market Square” in downtown Sudbury for a barbeque.Please mark your calendars for this informative event!
