Manitoba Co-operator: Canola sector gets research funds boost
The federal government is putting up $9 million in funding to drive sustainable growth of the canola sector.
The money will support a new canola cluster, said Lawrence MacAulay, federal agriculture minister, at a Nov. 14 media event at the University of Manitoba’s Glenlea Research Station.
The 2023–2028 Canola AgriScience Research Cluster follows a similar cluster that ran from 2018.
“This new canola cluster will build on the great work of the previous one, which I was proud to announce here a few years ago,” MacAulay said during the event.
