The diagnostic day is designed specifically to improve the problem solving skills of seed, fertilizer and chemical industry personnel and agricultural consultants.
The Eastern Ontario Crop Diagnostic Day will provide growers and agri-business personnel with “hands-on” learning experiences to assist in the correct identification and treatment of crop problems common to eastern Ontario. The program will provide a “real-world” environment where agriculturists can hone their crop trouble-shooting skills and evaluate new and alternative management strategies.
This is the 18th annual Eastern Ontario Crop Diagnostic Day that will highlight current topics of interest. The long-term goal of the day is to provide quality, state-of-the-art training in all aspects of crop production and management.
To facilitate discussion with speakers, participants will be divided into small groups of about 20 people. Each group will rotate through each location. Staff from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Food and Ministry of Rural Affairs conduct these sessions.
