Canadian Barley Research Coalition Investing $2.7 Million In University of Saskatchewan’s Crop Development Centre

The Canadian Barley Research Coalition (CBRC) announced it will invest $2.7 million over five years in the University of Saskatchewan’s Crop Development Centre.
 
The core breeding agreement will develop barley varieties with improved agronomics, disease resistance and end-use quality.
 
“Manitoba Crop Alliance understands how important it is for breeders to secure long-term funding when developing new varieties and considers programs aimed at improving the competitiveness and profitability of barley farms in western Canada a major priority. We are thrilled to be doing our part to help make this possible through this collaboration with our sister organizations in Saskatchewan and Alberta,” said Fred Greig, Manitoba Crop Alliance Chair.
 
The CBRC is a collaboration among the Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission, Alberta Barley and Manitoba Crop Alliance.
