August 7, 2018

Kwantlen Polytechnic University will launch a new research farm and seed lab, thanks to a total investment of $1.68M funding from the Government of British Columbia, Government of Canada, and industry partners. The 8.1 hectare research farm will be certified organic and will give growers, researchers, and students the ability to see new technologies and participate in workshops. “Through this exciting project, Kwantlen Polytechnic University is generating innovative research in sustainable agriculture that has real-world applications to local agriculture,” said KPU President Alan Davis. “Kwantlen students will get training for future job opportunities and B.C. growers will get training and technical services to help improve their business.” KPU | Richmond News
