Ontario’s greenhouse sector is getting some help to increase capacity and productivity.

More than $330,000 has been invested in in the Vineland Research and Innovation Centre (VRIC) in Lincoln, Ont. via the Canadian Agricultural Partnership. Research will focus on improving harvesting and storage practices, as well as inventory tracking and improvements to biosecurity and COVID-19 protocols.

VRIC will also study urban planting initiatives that will identify the best varieties of trees to plant for urban environments and streetscapes. This research will help lead to solutions and best practices for municipalities pursuing urban tree initiatives.
