As part of the Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers (OGVG) commitment to ongoing research, OGVG is looking for letters of intent for projects that match criteria to be part of an Ontario sector-wide project, Doing More with Less – Increasing Production Value through Innovation and Efficiency, aimed at advancing innovative technologies and improving the production equation for the Ontario greenhouse vegetable growers. Letters of intent received from this process and not selected for inclusion in the sector-wide project will be considered for other research initiatives in the medium to long term.
