UoGuelph receives $2M from Grain Farmers of Ontario for professorship in field crop pathology


The University of Guelph’s Ridgetown Campus has received a $2M donation from the Grain Farmers of Ontario to fund the creation of a Grain Farmers of Ontario Professorship in Field Crop Pathology. The faculty member will focus on proactively protecting grain crops from pathogens that are impacted by climate change and other factors. “This funding support from Grain Farmers of Ontario is significant for farmers and farms across Ontario,” said UoGuelph Ridgetown Campus Director Brett Shepherd. “It’s critically important that we be proactive, not just reactive, in identifying and developing strategies against these pathogens.”
