Ken Laing of Orchard Hill Farm is working in cooperation with EFAO to trial a wide variety of no-till methods for organic vegetable production. We will be documenting the work in a series of blogs.
Farmer-researchers Paul DeJong, Ken Laing and Tony McQuail published their findings in the Canadian Journal of Soil Science.
EFAO member-farmers Val Steinmann and Brent Preston, along with EFAO’s Research Director, Sarah Hargreaves, joined host Cameron Ogilvie on the new podcast “Talk Dirty to Me”.
We are excited to announce that EFAO’s Farmer-Led Research Program is the first recipient of the inaugural Excellence in Agriculture Award.
Health soil is the basis for both sustainable farms and healthy ecosystems. Yet the majority of Ontario’s farms are losing soil organic matter, are at risk of erosion, and have low or very low year-round soil cover.
