Video: Innovation in Dairy in the Northwest

The Rural Agri-Innovation Network's Sustainable New Agri-Food Products and Productivity (SNAPP) Program assisted three Thunder Bay area farms with the purchase of a SAMCO 61HD Corn Planter, allowing them to plant earlier and extend their growing season, which results in higher crop yields and higher quality feed crops. This innovative piece of machinery is designed as a 3-in-1 machine; to sow seeds, spray the soil with pre-emergence herbicide, and lay a thin layer of degradable film over the seedbed.
