Three to be added to Kent Agriculture Hall of Fame

Peter Sikkema of Ridgetown College is one of three people chosen for induction into the Kent Agriculture Hall of Fame this fall.

Sikkema developed confidence among farmers in southern Ontario for his research and extension efforts in weed control.

Dr. Norman Bradner was equally appreciated by farmers in Chatham-Kent for his pioneering plant breeding with soybeans.

Dianne Flook is being honoured for her contribution to rural goodwill among neighbours by educating them about normal and responsible farming practices.
