Canada: New World crops online resource now available

Thanks to the newly launched feedingdiversity.vinelandresearch.com microsite, growers can now better evaluate whether world crops fit their business plan. They can also manage risks through proven agronomic practices for Canada’s growing season.

Vineland Research and Innovation Centre (Vineland) has been investigating nontraditional crops with commercial potential as part of its Feeding Diversity: Bringing World Crops to Market research program. Through this program, Vineland researchers and partners across the country identified best varieties of okra, Asian long and Indian round eggplant for local production. The research also determined optimal agronomic practices.



Vineland has consolidated these research findings in a newly launched site feedingdiversity.vinelandresearch.com, offering a wealth of information including specific varieties that can grow in Canada’s cold and short season climate along with best practices to minimize costs.

The site also offers cost of production calculators that estimate costs and returns for Asian long and Indian round eggplant and okra.
