Bedstraw Herbicide Evaluation– Temiskaming Site

8 Jun

As of June 4th:

Preliminary Results:  after one year of the treatment, the treated sections with the herbicide “Milestone” low rate and high rate have mostly grasses but unfortunately we see traces of small bedstraw plants coming back in the stands. 2 sections also received 2,4-D in addition to the Milestone and at this point there are no differences.

Check 1: No Treatment

Low Rate  Milestone Treatment

Farm Show 2011

3 Jun

NEOSCIA does realize that the 45th Farm Show is ten plus months away, however the ball is rolling in planning it.

We have mentioned now numerous times that there are going to be some MAJOR (postive,of course) changes for next year’s show.

Here are some hints..

  1. Elk Lake Lake Eco Center
  2. Eat Local Sudbury
  3. Golden Beef

Any guesses on next year’s theme??
