Fisher Farm Receives the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence!

Congratulations to Fisher Farm for receiving
The Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence!

Ivan and Kevin Fisher do not enjoy unnecessary repetition. Why trundle three times over the same patch of ground when once will do the trick? These vegetable growers cover their fields in plastic mulch to reduce the need for irrigation and pesticides. But using conventional equipment to get plants in the ground used to require multiple passes. That’s before the Fisher’s designed a frame that keeps the planter centered within the plastic mulch. Now a single pass is enough. As a result, the Fishers have boosted productivity by 75 per cent, cut fossil fuel use and input costs, and reduced the wear and tear on their equipment. The frame has already piqued the interest of local growers, and the Fishers are eyeing commercial sales this fall.
