Canola growers fund dozens of research projects with their levy payments to SaskCanola, Alberta Canola and Manitoba Canola Growers. Many of those projects are funded through their joint Canola Agronomic Research Program (CARP). Here are short descriptions and updates for ongoing projects funded by the provincial canola organizations.
Merit Functional Foods has broken ground on its 88,000 square foot pea and canola protein extraction facility in the Northwest area of Winnipeg. When operational later in 2020, the extraction facility operated is expected to initially process approximately 20,000 tonnes of pea and canola annually.
