New Website Launches brings together four legacy sites to offer a simplified way to access performance trial data and more 

Guelph, ON – March 14, 2024 – The Ontario Corn Committee (OCC), the Ontario Cereal Crops Committee (OCCC), the Ontario Pulse Crop Committee (OPCC), and the Ontario Soybean and Canola Committee (OSACC) today launch a new website: The new site brings together four previous websites,,,, and under one cohesive banner.

“With this new website, we are excited to streamline the process for our growers across Ontario to get information regarding variety performance trials across all major crops in one place,” says Joanna Follings, Chair of the Ontario Cereal Crops Committee. “Providing timely, accurate information in a modern digital format is vitally important for reaching farmers. This new site will help all committees meet this need and we hope to see this become the go-to site for farmers looking for trial information.”

“The importance of selecting high yielding and adapted field crop varieties and hybrids is critical to Ontario’s future sustainability. Variety and hybrid performance testing, along with food quality analysis plays a crucial role and the new website ensures Ontario farmers are positioned to meet whatever lies ahead,” says Albert Tenuta, Chair, Ontario Soybean and Canola Committee.
