The Eastern Ontario Crop Diagnostic Day is a co-operative effort between the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, the Eastern Ontario Crop Advisory Committee and the Winchester Research Station, University of Guelph. The Eastern Ontario Crop Diagnostic Day is an annual event held in July, designed specifically to improve the problem solving skills of seed, fertilizer and chemical industry personnel, agricultural consultants and farm managers. Certified Crop Advisor credits are available for most sessions.

The Eastern Ontario Crop Diagnostic Day provides growers and agri-business personnel with “hands-on” learning experiences to assist in the correct identification and treatment of crop problems common to eastern Ontario. The program provides a “real-world” environment where agriculturists can hone their crop trouble-shooting skills and evaluate new and alternative management strategies. Over 300 participants attended the Eastern Ontario Crop Diagnostic Day in 2015. 

This year’s topics included:
• Weed ID

• Malting barley and cereal management
