USask receives $25M from Canada, SK to advance agricultural research

The University of Saskatchewan has received a $25M boost from the Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan to advance agricultural research. This funding will provide continued support for 15 strategic research chairs at USask’s College of Agriculture and Bioresources who are researching crop genetic improvement, livestock development, food and bioproducts development, and soils and the environment. “Providing stable funding to attract and retain leading scientists in key strategic areas increases the competitiveness and resilience of Saskatchewan’s agriculture sector and our provincial economy along with it,” said SK Agriculture Minister David Marit.
