The MCGA continues to invest in research that will be of benefit to Manitoba farmers and to leverage MCGA funds with funds available from various granting programs. The board has considered several proposals in the areas of agronomy, nitrogen utilization and feed grain supply/demand for funding beginning in 2019. MCGA funding for research projects in progress and committed (contracts in development) means that $932,732 is leveraged to participation in projects valued at $4.58 million.
Projects currently underway being co-funded by MCGA include:
Canadian Field Crops Research Alliance (CFCRA) – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) – Corn Research Projects
Optimum Nitrogen Fertilizer Management Strategies for Modern Corn Hybrids in Manitoba
