UoGuelph’s Ridgetown Campus receives provincial funding for new building

October 21, 2020

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs has given $6.5M to the University of Guelph’s Ridgetown Campus for the construction of a new field crop services building. The building will serve as a research and learning for space students, and bring the university’s crop sample receiving, processing, and storage facilities together in one building. “As Canada’s food university, the University of Guelph is committed to providing Ontario’s farmers with world-class research and on-farm solutions that promote crop health and productivity,” said Malcolm Campbell, vice-president (research). Construction of the 12,000-square-foot facility is set to be completed by spring 2022. ON | UoGuelph (ON )
