Agricultural research in BC gets boost

Victoria, BC A program that furthers innovation in BC agriculture has been renewed by the BC and federal governments with $3 million in funding over two years.

The cost-shared program will allow companies to access funding to support late-stage research or pilot projects that lead to commercialization and/or adoption of innovative products, technologies and practices. For example, projects could include:

  • Advancements in plant, animal and food science;
  • Energy and waste management;
  • New product development and commercialization;
  • Improvements in soil, water and air quality; and
  • Climate change adaptation.
