OMAFRA/OSCIA Alternative & Specialty Crop Demonstration at the COFS


Job’s tears (Coix lacryma-jobi) is one of ten gluten free grain crops featured in the Alternative and Specialty Crop Demonstration at the 2014 COFS.

There is only one day left to explore the OMAFRA/OSCIA Alternative and Specialty Crop Demonstration site at the Canada Outdoor Farm Show (COFS). This year the alternative crop demonstration site focuses on gluten free grain crops and industrial oilseed crops. Other OMAFRA/OSCIA demonstrations at the show include woodlot and tree-crop opportunities, cover crops and organic amendments, dribble bar technology, strategies to maintain continuous 30% soil cover, edible beans, a manure spill and clean-up demo and much more!
