2022 JULY TWILIGHT FIELD TOUR modified due to wet conditions
TUESDAY, JULY 5, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Glenlea Research Station (20 km south of the U of M on Hwy 75)
Due to wet field conditions, we have had to limit the sites being toured. Please wear rubber boots and bring your bug spray!
Join us for a walk through research fields located at the Glenlea Reseach Station and learn about:
Organic Long Term Rotation Study - the oldest organic field crop study in Canada. The site yields findings that help organic farming become more productive and sustainable. Visitors will also have the opportunity to see the latest in alternative farming equipment such as a camera-guided 3pt hitch inter-row cultivator, blade roller, rotative harrow and other equipment unique to organic grain production
Visitors should drive onto the access road on the west side of Highway 75 (at Research Station Road) and follow the signs.
