Fertigation, Food Safety & Compliance Advisor | Tel: 519-312-6842

I have been managing the production of field vegetables, cash crops and greenhouse crops for well over 25 years in both Europe and Ontario. Through my past experiences, I have implemented food safety programs, health & safety policies and procedures, and HR in both greenhouse & field production for various crops. I believe it is time to support the producer in this increasingly complex "compliant demanding world" to make it efficient and viable for a farm operation. Lakeside Grain & Feed Limited is an opportunity to share the experience.

CCA-ON | Tel: 519-312-6834

I have been growing vegetables for more than 30 years. I started experimenting with fertilizer and irrigation systems 25 years ago. Through years of research and in-field development, I and others created a program that consistently increases both yield and quality, while significantly improving return on investment. I see an average of 20-30% yield increase in my vegetable crops year after year, depending on the crop. Now I want to bring my years of experience and knowledge to other growers with Lakeside Grain & Feed Limited.
