NEW RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS TO RECEIVE $2 MILLION IN FEDERAL AND MB PROVINCIAL SUPPORT

The governments of Canada and Manitoba are investing more than $2 million over three years to support 24 research and development projects in Manitoba’s agriculture and agri-food sector,

The funded projects cover a range of agricultural issues including animal and human health, on-farm production technologies and opportunities for value-added industries and include:

  • the effects of late planting on early-maturing soybeans,
  • management strategies to control insecticide-resistant Colorado potato beetles,
  • fusarium head blight resistance in barley,
  • the long-term market effects of feeding and vaccination strategies for beef cattle,
  • genetic markers for flavour selection in pork, and
  • hemp consumption and human health trials.
