Budget 2023 makes investments in food and agriculture

The new budget addresses the Advance Payments Program and the Local Food Infrastructure Fund.

Federal budget includes 'positive measures' for Canadian fruit and vegetable growers, says FVGC

But there's still room for improvement when it comes to prioritizing food and food production, the organization said.

CPMA responds to Federal Budget 2023

The association is 'encouraged' by some aspects of the new federal budget, 'disappointed' by others.


Greenhouse Technology and Management, 2nd Edition

Greenhouse cultivation has expanded in recent decades with increased demand for horticultural production. This book covers current technologies and management practices of general greenhouse production, with a particular emphasis on plastic greenhouses and vegetable growing.

The author begins by addressing the natural greenhouse microclimate, in the context of managing greenhouse systems such as ventilation, cooling, heating, carbon dioxide enrichment, light management, crop physiology, greenhouse design and construction criteria.

The book then moves on to cover other issues of greenhouse management including irrigation and fertilization, soil and substrate cultivation, plant protection, regulation, economic analysis, environmental impact, and post-harvest production strategies and marketing.
