Manitoba Canola Growers works to fund, direct, develop and distribute practical, science-based research.
MCGA is strengthening its network of research collaborations, increasing the value for every research dollar. We are focused on building a better communication network with our members so the research results come back to the farm faster.
*This new research database will continue to be updated over time. Not all research funded by MCGA is archived on this page at this time.
