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, Federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz and Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Development Minister Ron Kostyshyn announced today.

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

  • 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.
