Huronview Demonstration Farm

<< Back to project list

The Huronview Demo Farm is one of several sites in Ontario where farmers are coming together with other partners to develop and demonstrate science-based agricultural practices that produce plentiful crops while improving soil health and protecting the environment. Land management practices include nutrient management, reduced tillage and cover crops while structural projects include water and sediment control basins, terraces, grassed buffer strips and waterways, constructed wetlands, and tree planting.

There are also drainage innovations being implemented, including diversion terraces, wetlands, contour tiling, control gates, and pattern tiling. The goal is to determine the effects on crop yield, soil health and water quality with an emphasis on clean water going into creeks and rivers.
