Canada-Manitoba Crop Diversification Centre
The Manitoba Crop Diversification Centre (MCDC) was established between the Government of Canada, the Government of Manitoba, and Manitoba Horticulture Productivity Enhancement Centre Inc. (MHPEC). The Centre’s mission, in brief, is to facilitate the development and adoption of science-based solutions for agricultural crop production. This is accomplished through the design, development and adaptation of best management practices with a focus on water management, crop diversification and environmental stewardship. Its strategic areas include sustainable irrigation, sustainable potato production, improving the environmental sustainability of intensive crop production, and crop diversification.
Partnership between Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Manitoba Department of Agriculture and Manitoba Horticulture Productivity Enhancement Centre (McCain Foods, Simplot, Keystone Potato Producer’s Association).
