We are very pleased to have spent the day with a range of agricultural producers from across the region. We met with 20 partners in Chesterville, ON, to get feedback on our work to date and share what we have found so far.
Team members Scott Mitchell, Dan MacDonald and Anna Zaytseva gave presentations on the project’s structure and objectives (Scott Mitchell, Chesterville 2017), farm model overview and the effects of changing weather patterns on broad scale farming operations (Dan MacDonald, Chesterville 2017) and weather impacts on the region’s key crops (Anna Zaytseva, Chesterville 2017).
Some of the key issues discussed during break-out group sessions as well as further project directions are summarized here.
Thanks to all of our guests for their help!
