Crop Production Research Farm

Our Crop Production Research farm sits on 600 acres on the western outskirts of Vegreville. The research conducted on the farm includes new crops research on crops, such as industrial hemp, as well as agronomic research on traditional crops, such as canola and barley.

Every summer up to 3,000 individual plots are grown and harvested on the farm. The type of research conducted ranges from herbicide and fungicide efficacy to variety comparisons to drought tolerance to native plants.
