    The National Research Council Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program has agreed to contribute $50,000 in 2012 to Performance Plants for research and development of Multiple High Value Traits for Enhancement of Key Cereal Grain Crop Yields.
    With PPI technologies proven in monocot crops, Canadian agriculture will have an advantage in putting those same technologies into crops. The technologies will have extensive species specific data, which will aid in adapting Canadian hybrids with the proven traits. These traits will allow Canadian farmers to reduce irrigation costs, as well as some of the risks associated with our variable weather conditions. As well, production will increase, even under optimal condition
