Vineland Research and Innovation Centre has developed a new website based on its research findings to improve tree longevity in challenging locations. Greeningcanadianlandscape.ca offers a soil remediation calculator and tree species selector to ensure successful tree plantings, even on difficult sites.
Canadians consume on average 1.5 kilograms of sweet potatoes every year and about 4,000 acres are needed to meet this demand. In partnership with Louisiana State University, Vineland has been testing varieties of sweet potato suited to Canada's climate. One variety has come out on top and is set for growers' fields in 2019.
