Agriculture – Ontario’s economic superpower

GUELPH, ON (February 4, 2011) The theme for Grain Farmers of Ontario’s (GFO) 2011 March Classic conference is ‘Agriculture – Ontario’s Economic Superpower’.

Ontario corn, soybean, and wheat crops generate over $9 billion in economic output and are responsible for over 40,000 jobs in the province. Annually, farm gate receipts result in $2.5 billion alone. 

Agriculture competes with the automotive industry for the top economic driver in Ontario. GFO takes pride in the impact our 28,000 grain farmers make with their production and marketing capabilities.

The March Classic will feature grain buyers from around the world speaking about Ontario grain quality and uses. To join us for this powerful conference, register today at: www.gfo.ca/MarchClassic.
