20 new research projects across Canada


  • The 20 new research projects span from coast-to-coast, from the University of British Columbia to collaborative research with conservation groups in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. They range in scope from studying greenhouse gas emissions from blueberry, potato and forage crops in British Columbia to planting willow trees in areas irrigated by rivers in the Atlantic as a means to sequester carbon.
  • The $3.7 million investment for three projects with the University of Alberta will go towards finding ways for farmers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and increase soil carbon sequestration. They include:  developing a new grazing system for ranchers; investigating the use of perennial cereals over annual cropping systems; and, evaluating the environmental impact of shelterbelts and hedgerows.
