Bayer invests in Canadian canola programme
Bayer CropScience has invested some €10 million ($14 million) in a canola breeding research facility in Canada. The 5,000 m 2 facility, which includes laboratories, growth rooms and greenhouses, has been added to the company’s existing 225 ha breeding station near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It brings the canola breeding programme together in one location for the first time, the company points out. The move is aimed at driving the continual advancement of Bayer’s genetically modified glufosinate-tolerant InVigor canola hybrids, it adds.
