Farmers in Ontario excited by becoming a member of the Nice Lakes Yield Enhancement Network can now apply to this system. 100 spots can be found, 50 of that are open to Ontario wheat growers; the steadiness of spots can be provided to American growers within the Nice Lakes area.
Farmers collaborating within the Nice Lakes YEN will agree to gather soil, tissue, and grain samples at particular occasions all through the length of the venture and ship them to a lab for analyses. Moreover, they’re anticipated to:
- Maintain a document of all crop inputs, observe crop development levels, and enter discipline information by established deadlines.
- Obtain software program and/or an app and use it for information entry
- Take part within the year-end assembly
- Settle for and organize third-party verification of yield harvested in 2022
This program will encourage farmers to strive new issues and be taught from information which can be comparable throughout the Nice Lakes area. Each discipline is completely different and has completely different yield potential primarily based on a mess of things, reminiscent of atmosphere (rainfall, daylight), soil (water holding capability, nutrient ranges), and administration (inputs used and timing).
Applications will shut on August 15, 2021. Farmers can be notified of their acceptance by August 30, 2021, for a program launch of September 2021.
