We will be estimating corn and soybean yields in Ontario in 5 regions - South, East, Central, West and North, by taking samples for the last 2 weeks of August. During our tour we will try to answer some important questions such as: Did a late and wet planting season damage the crops? How many corn acres were lost to soybeans? How did the growing season unfolded?
We want you to see what we see, so follow the tour on twitter using hashtag #ONyield17 and check out @Farmsmarketing photos and farmer and industry expert video “tips of the day” interviews.
