This spring seeding went smooth! The weather cooperated, and there were no break-downs. Seeding summary is:
120 Acres of Camden Milling Oats
25 Acres of Arborg Milling Oats
Sowing was done at a rate of 3.4 bushels per acre in two passes of 1.7 bushels per acre on each pass. The two passes were sown at 90° to each other.
Let the growing begin!
Rusk Ranch is located near the middle of Canada in the Swan River Valley agricultural belt. The acreage is surrounded by conventional chemical farms. It is hoped that this adventure will de-risk other farms towards environmentally sound farming practices that produce healthy nutrient dense corps!
