Canadian Agri-Science Cluster for Horticulture 4

The Fruit and Vegetable Growers of Canada (FVGC) is actively preparing for the opportunity to establish a fourth Canadian AgriScience Cluster for Horticulture under Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) next agricultural policy framework for 2023-2028. AgriScience Clusters are intended to mobilize industry, government and academia through partnerships, and address priority themes and horizontal issues that are national in scope.

In recent months, FVGC has consulted with industry members through our commodity Working Groups* to update the National Research and Innovation Priorities**:

December 2022 update: FVGC has completed the Cluster 4 proposal process. Thank you to all that participated – researchers, industry members, peer reviewers – your time and expertise has been of great value to the horticulture cluster. Final research activities have now been selected and FVGC is working towards AAFC’s application deadline of February 1, 2023.
