Feds fund poultry code updates and hort programs

The federal government has announced funding of over $2 million to the Canadian Animal Health Coalition (CAHC) to develop and update poultry codes and further advance best practices for the care and handling of other farm animals.

The government has also announced funding of over $1.4 million for the
Vineland Research and Innovation Centre to modernize its rose breeding program using state-of-the-art DNA fingerprinting technology to develop cold hardy, black-spot-resistant rose varieties.

The centre will also receive over $1.1 million for research that seeks to increase seasonal field production of oriental long eggplants and okra, evaluate the use of greenhouse technologies and develop sweet potato varieties adapted to Canadian conditions
