It was planting day for the annual Farming For Health Project.
This year it was Yorkton New Holland's turn to seed the crop, with LDC and Boyd Ellis having the canola seed on site on the land on Grain Millers Road.
Assiniboine Valley Transport was hauling the Cargill supplied nitrogen and sulphur fertilizers. and Tyson Becker and Top Krop Fertilizers Inc. graciously donated all other fertilizer needs. This is Top Krop's first participation in the project .
In 2019 at the annual Hospital Gala on behalf of the Farming for Health project a cheque was presented to the Health Foundation for $208790. The cheque represented the proceeds of the 2019 crop.
The funds will were earmarked to purchase a diagnostic ultrasound machine, a device that will be primarily used for heart function, cancer diagnosis, and shoulder and joint issues.
The machine does approximately 2,000 tests a year.
