The Canadian and Ontario governments have announced funding of up to $8 million over three years for Ontario apple, tender fruit, table grape, and wine grape growers through the Growing Future Opportunities Initiative, under the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

The funding is intended to help growers plant varieties of produce that will improve quality, production, and marketability. These improvements will help achieve:

  • Better alignment with changing consumer preferences
  • Increased yields
  • Improved cold hardiness
  • Improved resistance to pests and diseases
  • Improved labour efficiency
