Grain Farmers of Ontario (GFO) has unveiled details for the 2022 March Classic – Sowing the Seeds of Opportunity, Innovation, and Tomorrow.
This year, Grain Farmers of Ontario plans to host an in-person event with live streaming of speakers for farmer-members and others who wish to attend online. The March Classic 2022 will welcome Sonny Perdue, the 31st United States Secretary of Agriculture from 2017-2021, to discuss Canada-U.S. agriculture relations and more. Once again, the March Classic will host the U.S Farm Report for the first Canadian live taping with host Tyne Morgan, after a successful Canadian panel discussion at the 2021 Virtual March Classic.
GFO said in a release the 2022 March Classic is celebrating the future, by sowing the seeds of opportunity, innovation, and tomorrow.
“The importance of grain farming in the world continues to grow, especially in light of the economic recovery Canada needs to focus on, food security, and the need to ensure that food production remains sustainable. The 2022 March Classic will explore the opportunities that will shape tomorrow for grain farmers,” said Victoria Berry, manager of communications.
The March Classic remains a premier event for the grain industry in Canada. Each year the event brings together hundreds of grain farmers, agriculture industry supporters, government, and more.
The event is being planned as an in-person event. Grain Farmers of Ontario will adhere to public health guidelines and mandates on attendance limits and safety protocols.
