Elora Research Station

The Elora Research Station is located in South Central Ontario in Wellington County.  The station is one of the largest agricultural research farms in Canada (1600 acres) and supports intensive research in crops, soils, beef and dairy.

A wide variety of research programs utilize the 400 acre crops research portion of this facility.  Breeding programs in cereals (wheat, barley, oats), corn, edible beans, soybeans, canola and forages have been present since the station's establishment in 1969. Herbicide evaluation and development trials, forage and pasture management, potato, native flower and cole crop development plus support for a variety of graduate student projects occur on an ongoing basis.  As well, research programs evaluate cropping rotations and their effects on soil structure, crop performance and manure management.
