    We have enlisted the help of the Ontario Compaction Team to demonstrate the effect equipment has on our soils.  You will see pieces of equipment drive over sensors that monitor the compaction at 6", 12" and 18" levels. Join Ian McDonald, Alex Barrie, Jake Kraayenbrink and Peter Johnson for the equipment demo!

    We have seeded a variety of cover crops on the site.  Join Sebastian Belliard and Christine Brown to examine root growth and soil structure in this plot.

    Tillage implements can be used to alleviate surface compaction.  Join us as we demo equipment and examine the impact of each on the soil. Commentary will be provided by Dale Cowan, AGRIS and Wanstead Co-ops and Adam Pfeffer- Elgin Soil and Crop.

    $50 registration includes the day and supper as well as the speaker program after supper.
