The research projects undertaken by the Canadian Horticultural Council (CHC) between April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2013 focused on four commodity groups: tree fruit, small fruit, potato, and water.
The Agri-Science Cluster for Horticulture was a multi-activity project funded by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in the amount of $4,700,000. Growers and partners contributed an additional $1,400,000—a significant investment in the sector.
