GRIPP Joins Ontario Hazelnut Industry to Support Development of Plant Production Technologies

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) is investing nearly $500,000 to help with the development of Ontario’s hazelnut industry.

The Ontario Hazelnut Association (OHA) will receive $492,052 through Growing Forward 2’s AgriInnovation Program. The funds will be used to enhance the development of hazelnut trees, develop strategies to mitigate drought stress and establish production techniques to multiply hazelnut plants for commercial use.
