UManitoba receives $6.4M boost for new Prairie Crops and Soil Research Facility


The University of Manitoba has received a combined investment of $6.4M from the governments of Canada and Manitoba towards the establishment of the Prairie Crops and Soil Research Facility (PCSRF). This 20,000 square foot facility will act as a hub for crop research on topics such as nutrient management, cropping systems, digital agronomy, and breeding. “The PCSRF sets the stage for our researchers to develop an integrated approach to robust agronomic systems that will benefit Western Canadian producers and consumers across Canada for years to come,” said UManitoba Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Martin Scanlon. The facility is expected to be operational by June 2026.
