Added on 31 July 2023
“The success and growth of Ontario’s agricultural industry can be directly linked to the research and innovation done throughout the province and right here in Vineland,” said Lisa Thompson, Ontario minister of agriculture, food and rural affairs. “Vineland Research and Innovation Centre has long been at the forefront of horticultural research in Canada. I am confident the investment made in the Jordan Building will continue to produce positive impacts on the economic viability, sustainability and competitiveness of horticulture in Ontario.”
The facility showcases a number of advanced capabilities, including a climate-controlled laboratory space, a dedicated root-washing room, localized venting and specialized fume hoods to allow for soil processing in a centralized location. With two state-of-the-art laboratories, the Jordan Building is designed to handle the analysis of soils and substrates for all types of horticultural production needs.
