Ontario funding will build new field crop building for U of G's Ridgetown Campus

The Ontario government, through the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario (ARIO), and the University of Guelph will spend $6.5 million to build a new Field Crop Services building on the Ridgetown campus.

The new build will house agronomy research services and modernize the field crops research operations on campus, while also reducing operating costs. Ridgetown campus field crop research is focused on the study of crop production, including crop genetics, nutrient inputs, and integrated pest management.

“This is a significant long-term investment in field crop research infrastructure, and I want to thank the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, and University of Guelph administration for their tremendous support,” says Ken McEwan, Ridgetown Campus director, University of Guelph. “The Ridgetown Campus fills an important need for applied agricultural research, education and outreach that is not duplicated within the province.”
