Wanstead Farmers' Co-operative Golf Day
L-R, Mike Parker, Darrin Angus, Jason Migchels, Donna Conlan, Rick Mercer
Wanstead Farmers’ Co-operative would like to thank all of their owners and customers who recently attended their annual golf day at Bonnie Golf Club. Organizers of the annual golf day, Mike Parker, Jason Migchels, Darrin Angus, Donna Conlan and Rick Mercer would also like to thank the many suppliers who graciously donated prizes for all those that participated.
A swath of moderate to locally heavy rain is in store for the southern and eastern Midwest Tuesday, focusing on the Missouri Bootheel and Ohio Valley. We'll see a drier trend in the remainder of the primary U.S. and Canadian Prairies crop regions. Temperatures will be mild in northern and central areas, and hot in the southern sections. This combination is mostly favorable for crops; however, recently-hot conditions are diminishing soil moisture in the Southern Plains for wheat planting. » More DTN Weather Commentary
CleanFARMS is partnering with Wanstead Farmers' Co-operative to deliver a pilot program for the safe collection and disposal of empty pesticide and seed bags.
This pilot project is part of the agricultural industry’s commitment to the responsible management of its products throughout their entire lifecycle and will help determine the feasibility of a permanent provincial program.
Please do your part and help develop a successful collection program in Ontario.
