Clearing a $5-million fund

Nova Scotia works towards cleaner, efficient farm technologies

Over the next two years, Nova Scotia farmers and food processors will have access to a new $5-million program that is aimed at helping food production and making environmental improvements to their operations.

Provincial Agriculture Minister Keith Colwell said the goal of the Agriculture Clean Technology Program is to help growers use technologies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, while increasing production through extended growing seasons.

According to an article on atlantic.ctvnews.ca¸ Colwell added that the program would target the use of technologies that will assist the year-round availability of food through such things as improved greenhouse lighting and cleaner and more efficient energy sources.
