“This $614,280 award is an important recognition of Vineland’s innovative research in horticulture,” said Dr. Daryl Somers, Vineland’s director of applied genomics.

“Grants from the CFI program were awarded to 52 research institutions across Canada and we are proud to be part of this prestigious group.”
