AREA NEWS and Annual Meetings OSCIA News and Crop Talk links below
The Northumberland SCIA is starting a soybean yield competition within Northumberland County.
It was decided at our planning meeting in the spring that we should have a soybean yield contest. Geoff Townsend and I have put together a competition, and we have decided to run it in conjunction with the provincial one that has been going for 2 years now. Everyone has to be a soil and crop member and also enter the provincial soybean yield challenge. The entry form and challenge rules are at the website http://www.gfo.ca/soybeanyieldchallenge.aspx.
Everyone that enters the competition needs to notify Justin Dorland or Geoff Townsend by July 30th. The cost to the grower is $15 to enter the provincial competition and $10 for the Northumberland SCIA The $10 is due before the annual meeting in December. The yield result is to be emailed or phoned to Justin Dorland or Geoff Townsend. The top grower will be announced at the NSCIA annual meeting in December. A prize will be given to the winner, the prize to be determined. All of the local input suppliers have been contacted and will be available to help in the weighing of the samples. Hopefully we get a great deal of participation this project continues well into the future. Justin Dorland, President NSCIA
