New funding for agricultural research
By Winnipeg Free Press
Sept 15, 2016 - Finding a better way to separate sticky hemp fibres and cut canola for maximum seed harvest are two of the projects that Prairie Agriculture Machinery Institute staff are working on. The federal and provincial governments recently announced a total of $400,000 in funding for Manitoba research projects. PAMI will receive $288,400 to help cover the costs of six projects.
"The economic benefits of our agricultural research are very impressive because the findings can be implemented by many agricultural producers in Manitoba," says PAMI CEO Dave Gullacher, in a news release. "Recent studies show work such as this produces $15 to $20 in benefits for every dollar invested, which is essential for our industry. We will be developing strong funding partnerships with industry and will work closely with a great number of agricultural producers to carry out this work." | READ MORE.
