Equipment theft at farm research project
CLINTON – The Huronview Demonstration Farm, south of Clinton, has experienced recent thefts and vandalism.
This site is one of several in Ontario where farmers and partners work together to develop and demonstrate science-based agricultural practices to improve crop production and soil health while protecting the environment.
The Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA) has monitoring equipment in this field to collect important data and evaluate different types of erosion control solutions.
If anyone has information regarding the missing equipment, please contact the Clinton OPP Detachment at 519-482-1677.
"The intent of this project is to share data with our agricultural partners at the Huron County Soil and Crop Improvement Association and the drainage community," said Mari Veliz, ABCA Healthy Watersheds Manager. "This data will help to inform best practices to improve water quality. We hope people will appreciate the work being done and watch for the missing equipment.”
