Nov. 1, 2016, Vineland Station, Ont. – One of the world’s leading horticultural research centres has posted an impact study of its first decade of innovation.
“In 2007, Vineland was a new concept, an independent research organization set up with a focus on creating impact for the Canadian horticulture sector,” notes the report authors. “Impact in this context means acres in the field, shelf space in the grocery store. It means profitable farms and greenhouses, exports, new businesses, jobs and environmental gains.”
The report lists a number of case studies, including Vineland’s impressive biological control program to help ornamental growers keep thrips in check. “Research that began in 2010 has produced encouraging results, making Vineland a global leader in developing effective biocontrol strategies,” notes the report.
