Economic Action Plan to boost research for Canadian agriculture

Canada’s Economic Action Plan aims to improve the economy for all industries in the hopes of bringing new economic prosperity to Canadians across the country.

Under the action plan, the Government of Canada has implemented an accelerated program to invest a total of $12 billion in improvements to federal infrastructure across Canada by 2011, including  $250 million for upgrades to federal laboratories.  One of the key laboratories getting a lot of attention is the Semiarid Prairie Agricultural Research Centre in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.
