FCC contributes $225,000 to three university agriculture programs
Farm Credit Canada (FCC) recently committed a total of $225,000 to help support agriculture programs and research projects at three Canadian universities.
“University agriculture programs serve as innovation hubs in Canadian agriculture,” said Marty Seymour, FCC’s director of industry and stakeholder relations. “We are proud to invest in projects that support agriculture research and enhance the student experience. This will also help attract the best and the brightest into pursuing an education and future career in agriculture.”
FCC committed funding to the following projects:
“Young people are bringing new optimism and energy to agriculture in growing numbers and we want to encourage and support them every step of the way,” Seymour said. “Our contributions to post-secondary agriculture programs are helping inspire the next generation to consider careers in agriculture.”
