By Top Crop Manager
June 6, 2014 - The federal government is investing $5 million with the Canadian International Grains Institute (Cigi) to find innovative applications for Canada's field crops.
According to a news release, the funding will allow Cigi to undertake research activities that will focus on creating innovative applications and market-ready products developed from Canadian field crops including wheat and pulses.
Canada typically exports approximately 50 per cent of its total primary field crop production, which in 2012 totalled approximately $17.44 billion.
