We work with industry, government, and academic and research institutions - both nationally and internationally - to carry out innovative research in agriculture, aquaculture, the environment, and related fields.

Our research is helping to innovate new technologies for environmental sustainability, rural growth, and bio-resource innovation in support of the agri-food and aquaculture industries.

In addition to our modern and extensive laboratories, we have a number of research facilities unique to the Atlantic region, including a 250-hectare farm, extensive pasture, field and turfgrass facilities, greenhouses, an experimental orchard and a number of outlying research facilities.
