2019 Ontario Potato Field Day Announced


Summer has officially begun, and it is the perfect time to mark your calendars. The 2019 Ontario Potato Field Day, hosted by HJV Equipment and supported by the Ontario Potato Board, will be held on Thursday, August 22, at HJV Equipment in Alliston, Ont.

The event starts at 3:00 p.m. with the following activities:

  • What’s New in Potato Equipment
  • Display of New Varieties
  • Trade Show

As always, there will be an excellent BBQ on the menu starting at 5:30 pm and provided by Syngenta.

I am hoping that the delicious sweet corn, generously provided by WH Dorsey Farms, will be ready for August 22.  Late planting has been a concern not only for potatoes but also for sweet corn.

I hope to see you all on August 22!
