CAN (PE): Harrington Research Farm greenhouse doubles acreageMore agricultural scientists, refurbished labs and multi-million dollar equipment were part of an announcement in Harrington on Wednesday to boost the farming sector in P.E.I.
Federal Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister Lawrence MacAulay joined newly hired researchers at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Harrington Research Farm to announce the completion of a $6.8-million upgrade of the facility.
The upgrades include $2.97 million for 10 new and renovated laboratories and the purchase of a $1.3-million nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer for the Charlottetown Research and Development Centre on University Avenue. It also includes $2.54 million for an expansion of the Harrington Research Farm greenhouse.
The growing space in the centre’s greenhouse in Harrington has been doubled to 392 square meters.
Mark Grimmett, associate director of the Charlottetown Research and Development Centre, said the investment will allow the centre to double its greenhouse capacity in Harrington.
“You can get two growing seasons in one year . . . so you can get twice as much work done in one year as opposed to waiting for next spring to start the next crop and the next round of breeding so that can accelerate your development of new lines for breeding material,’’ Grimmett told The Guardian.
