Congratulations to Dr Tarlok Sahota

The Thunder Bay Federation of Agriculture is proud to announce that Dr Sahota is one of eleven leaders in Agriculture that have been inducted into the Ontario Agriculture Hall of Fame.  The TBFA is grateful for all of Dr Sahota’s contributions to agriculture in Thunder Bay. An excerpt from the Ontario Agriculture Hall of Fame’s media release can be found below.  As well as a statement from Dr Sahota.

The Thunder Bay Federation of Agriculture nominated Dr. Sahota, for which he is very grateful. “This induction means a lot to me,” Dr. Sahota said. “It is a recognition of the farmer-focused research that I conduct at LUARS. It is also a recognition of the Northwestern Ontario farmers, especially Thunder Bay farmers, who brought prosperity on their farms and in the rural communities by quickly adopting my research.”

Tarlok Singh Sahota (1953 –) has made great contributions in his work managing and sustaining the
privately-run Thunder Bay Agricultural Research Station and its successful transition to Lakehead
University Agricultural Research Station. The research station, under the leadership of Dr. Sahota, has
always focused on development-oriented agricultural research which found an easy application on
farms, due to vigorous extension efforts of Dr. Sahota and receptive farmers. Until 2004, Thunder Bay
producers grew only a few crops that were needed for cattle. Dr. Sahota’s research and extension
helped area growers to diversify their cropping systems by adding numerous crops to their mix. He has
authored hundreds of publications, extension articles and participated in media reports. Thunder Bay
farmers rely on research conducted by Dr. Sahota to make their businesses more profitable and
environmentally sustainable.
