Researchers are working on new varieties of potatoes that they hope will help growers on P.E.I. cope with the effects of climate change. Some of the newest varieties were at the Agriculture Canada research station in Harrington, P.E.I.
McCain Foods Canada, a division of McCain Foods Limited, shared today the company’s plan to further invest CAD 12 Million dollars in its potato processing facility in the French fry capital of the world, Florenceville, New Brunswick.
A new study will dig deep into the soil to determine how watering and irrigation methods affect southern Alberta’s potato crops. The research project is a partnership. It is made possible through a grant from the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.
