With the growing season in full bloom, I touched base with Manitoba producer Art Enns for an update on the canola field we’ve partnered with him on in support of the Manyinga Project.
Enns will donate the proceeds from 40 acres of canola toward the Manyinga Project, which supports two schools for orphaned and vulnerable children in the Manyinga region of Zambia, Africa. Along with the state curriculum, the children learn the agricultural skills they will need to support themselves, as subsistence farming is the primary way of life in the Manyinga region.
OMEX partnered on the project with a contribution of High Performance Plant Nutrition Products to help maximize yields and, ultimately, the proceeds from this field. 20 acres were treated with OMEX products, and 20 acres were left as our check. When I gave Enns a call, I was happy to hear how impressed he was with his crop’s growth so far.
