CHATHAM — After a two-year pandemic pause, the annual Chatham Kent Farm Show returns to the John D. Bradley Convention Centre on Jan. 25-26.
The 2023 edition features 91 agribusiness exhibitors and includes a special speaker series, as well as an organized tour of the local Greenfield Global ethanol plant. Excursions to the plant facility will run throughout the Show’s two-day run.
Appearing both days of the show, corn specialists Chuck Belanger and Greg Stewart will talk about achieving big corn yields in a dry year. Commodity strategist Moe Agostino will tackle grain markets and “how high is too high.” Drone pilot Andres Hurtado will discuss use of drone technology in farming. Appearing only on Jan.26 is researcher Pierre Migner, who will look at how stress affects plants.
The privately owned event was first held in 2014 and is today operated by OP Productions, owned by Stoney Point cash-cropper Courtney Brochu and her husband.
