Designed to support research and development that will enhance agriculture.
As part of our role as a catalyst, we have designed technology platforms to support research and development of stakeholders in the ag biotechnology ecosystem – enhancing digital agriculture, accelerating plant breeding, increasing quality crop yield and building plant resilience to climate change.
Our platforms provide scale and transform our scientific competencies and capabilities into capacities for stakeholders, making us a catalyst for partnerships and innovation world-wide. We have a track-record for managing and delivering on large-scale, multi-disciplinary programs, including the $37-million Plant Phenotyping and Imaging Research Centre (P2IRC) funded by a Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) grant to USask.
By providing these needed services, GIFS is helping to advance sustainable food security from Saskatchewan out, in a manner that is economically, environmentally and socially sustainable.
