2018 CALL FOR RESEARCH PROPOSALS
Manitoba Pulse & Soybean Growers prioritizes investment into scientific research that aims to ensure profitability for farmers, answer relevant production questions, discover new opportunities and increase the long-term sustainability of the pulse and soybean industry in Manitoba. The annual Call for Research Proposals ensures our association can invest in research to address emerging issues in a timely manner.
MPSG, in partnership with other commodity organizations, is preparing for the release of the next federal-provincial-territorial agriculture policy framework. The current framework comes to an end March 31, 2018, and industry is preparing new cluster applications to ensure programs are fully launched by April 1, 2018. The current Agri-Science Clusters, funded through Growing Forward 2, has allowed MPSG and other groups to leverage federal investment in research to tackle issues of national priority.
MPSG is currently involved with development of three Agri-Science Cluster applications. Pulse Cluster, Integrated Crop Agronomy Cluster and Canadian Field Crops Cluster applications are being led by Saskatchewan Pulse Growers, Western Grains Research Foundation and the Canadian Field Crop Research Alliance, respectively.
