Canada invests in wheat production

The Canadian government has made a Can$1 million (US$781,390) award to the Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) aimed at increasing winter wheat production in western Canada. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada researchers will collaborate with industry on a number of activities, including research into new controls to address weed problems, new cultivars and enhanced crop production through better residue management. The AWC is investing Can$150,000 (US$117,209) in 11 winter wheat R&D projects. They cover pest control issues, input management and the use of crop growth regulators. The combined investment from all funding partners is Can$2.2 million (US$1.7 million) over four years.
