The Research on the Farm Program benefits farmers by demonstrating how products and practices behave on their own farm, using farm-scale equipment. Research on the Farm projects are established across several farm types, soil types and environments, providing results relevant to both the participating farmer and a broad scale of Manitoba farming operations. By involving farmers in the scientific method, conclusions can be drawn from a wide range of environments, aiding the understanding of new production methods and products.
The Whole Farm Research program was established by Manitoba Crop Alliance to address the need for whole-farm, cross-commodity research in Manitoba. Supporting non-crop-specific research, Whole Farm Research recognizes the challenges and opportunities of diverse cropping systems across Manitoba. This multi-disciplinary approach leads to innovative solutions that benefit Manitoba producers now and into the future.
