USask receives $2M donation from BMO for regenerative, digital agriculture research


The University of Saskatchewan has received a $2M donation from BMO to accelerate critical research into regenerative and digital agriculture. The funds will support the Jarislowsky and BMO Research Chair in Regenerative Agriculture and the BMO Soil Analytical Laboratory. Both initiatives will support sustainable agriculture practices by focusing on regenerative agriculture, an approach that preserves and restores food production systems while maximizing their productivity and profitability. “Expanding our research capacity in regenerative agriculture and our analytical capacity in soil health will accelerate development of targeted solutions for food security while protecting our natural resources,” said USask Dean of the College of Agriculture and Bioresources Dr Angela Bedard-Haughn.
