Earth Day 2021 is on Thursday April 22 and is a great time to look at the way that Ontario’s grain farmers are protecting our natural resources! Working hard to protect our environment now, will ensure the next generation will have the access to grow quality food.
Across the province, Ontario grain farmers have been finding new and innovative ways to be better stewards of the earth. This will ensure that they are keeping our natural environment healthy in order to grow healthy grains.
Follow along with us this week as we take a deeper dive to look into a few of the methods and practices that farmers across Ontario are implementing on their farm to help protect the environment. We will be taking a closer look at the use of cover crops, implementing the 4R strategy, using field borders and soil testing and how these practices positively impacts the environment. Celebrate Earth Day 2021 with us!
