The University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences has received a $1.5M donation from RBC to bolster research in low-emission agricultural practices. This gift will fund research grants for 30 undergraduate and 15 graduate students at UManitoba, supporting the advancement of research and solutions related to the impact climate change has on the food production industry. “RBC’s important investment ensures that we are preparing the next generation of sustainable food producers,” said UManitoba Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Dr Martin Scanlon. “Students will work closely with top researchers as well as producer organizations in areas of the students’ choice, such as regenerative agriculture, soil health and livestock nutrition in the quest for climate-smart agricultural systems.”
