A long-term agroforestry research project led by University of Guelph researchers at the Guelph Research Station is being completed. The project relates to biomass—non-food plants such as trees with the potential to be used for fuel. As part of that project, “short duration woody crops” such as poplar and willow trees and grass varieties were planted. To complete the project, they must now be harvested.Harvest will take place starting Nov. 23, 2020 at two sites that front onto Victoria Rd. S. in Guelph between College Avenue and Stone Road.
Applications will be accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis while funds are available.
Join us on November 24 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. for an advanced session focused on understanding arts-based research methods and storytelling as powerful tools for research and knowledge mobilization.
This event will be of interest to the agri-food industry, government, NGOs, and academia.
Participants will hear from Professor Claudia Wagner-Riddle, School of Environmental Sciences and Angie Straathof, Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA).
The recording of this event is now posted.

Plant agriculture professor Jayasankar Subramanian and his team are developing new technologies to decrease fruit spoilage, part of Ontario’s annual food waste that costs a total of $12 billion per year.
The government of Ontario is investing $6.52-million in University of Guelph research to help find ways to prevent or control costly crop diseases and pests, improve soil health and water quality and quantity and boost productivity and profitability for farmers.
