Oxford SCIA


Results from 2019 Oxford Tier 1 project assessing sulfur effects in corn and soybeans. Due to the year 2019 was, only 2 plots established. We have applied for another Tier 1 grant for 2020 and hope we can get a few more plots this year. If you are interested in participating, please contact Steve Hughes at 519-281-0032 shughesOAC2001@yahoo.ca

In light of recent events, Oxford Soil and Crop has cancelled our usual spring producer meeting.  We do not want to risk the health and welfare of meeting hosts, speakers, directors or our members. It is hoped that we can get back to “normal” before our summer meeting event. Please stay tuned!


 

Oxford SCIA has also received Tier 1 funding to purchase some temperature recording weather stations, and we are looking for someone to report data in the south east corner of the county (Norwich area) as well as someone to the west (Thamesford/Kintore).  We will send out the weather stations to the first two volunteers—contact Cathy 519-788-0895 to get yours!
