The Ontario government is investing $7.25 million in 50 Ontario-led research and innovation projects.


Examples are:


-  Development of biological control tactics for use in an Integrated Pest Management program for multiple thrips species in Ontario greenhouse crops (Rose Buitenhuis, Plant Health and Protection)


-  Assessment, simulation and optimization of a prototype net-zero energy greenhouse for Ontario (William Lubitz, Environmental Stewardship)


Ontario’s investments are through the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance, a collaboration between the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) and the University of Guelph. These projects focus on four research categories: environmental stewardship and food safety, economic and rural development, animal health and welfare, and plant health and protection.


The University of Guelph recently issued a 2022-23 call for proposals under the Alliance program this year. This call is from August 23, 2022 to November 7, 2022. To check eligibility requirements and apply, visit
