Continued research in varietal trials and related subjects are expected to continue at the Simcoe Research Station in Norfolk County through the University of Guelph.
To date, the OHA has depended on volunteers. “There are currently no paid positions, and all the board members volunteer their time,” said Eric Beriault, chair of the OHA. “Adding a paid position allows us to work towards the goals of the industry a lot quicker. As a board, we represent our members, and we have established a number of initiatives that we want to move forward with. Having someone working full time, coordinating the different committees, will allow us to accomplish our goals.”
