Fixing Roads With Soybeans – Crosby Devitt, GFO

In agriculture we are always looking for different uses of the commodities that we produce.  Farmers continue to try and diversify the uses of their products with the help of researchers. Ethanol and bio -diesel are good examples of this but it does just end with bio-fuels.  Along with several other stakeholders, the Grain Farmers of Ontario is looking at the possibility of using a soybean oil based product to seal roads and fix pot holes.

In my mind this could be a great way to connect consumers with agriculture.  All commuters that take the 401 into the GTA could be driving on a nice smooth highway provided in part by the soybean growers of Ontario.


Crosby Devitt is the responsible for the market development and research activities at the GFO and he discussed with me the possibilities of this program and how it could potentially hit commercialization in Ontario if testing goes well.
