Bio 2022: A Biological Control Strategy for the Floriculture Sector in Canada

Posted on August 6, 2013 By Flowers Canada Posted In Growers

Please find a description and the final reports from a study Flowers Canada undertook with funding assistance from the Agricultural Innovation Project.  

Flowers Canada Growers is committed to helping its membership succeed with the adoption and implementation of biological controls.  FCG has set an over-arching goal to develop a 10 year biological control strategy that will lead to biocontrol success on all flower farms in Canada by 2022.  Floriculture is a strong player in Canada’s agriculture and agri-food system; the attainment of this goal will contribute significantly to the attainment of the Goals of Canada set by AAFC under Growing Forward 2.

Many thanks to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada for their support throughout the process of implementing this project. This project is funded through the Agricultural Innovation Program (AIP) of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Stream A, Knowledge Creation and Transfer Stream, Component 1, Innovation Strategy Development.
