How do you access and use horticulture research?

March 17, 2022  By Brock University

To meet increasing expectations for more sustainable production, the horticulture sector needs access to useable information and research about effective best management practices (BMPs).

The Niagara Community Observatory at Brock University is conducting a series of surveys in Ontario’s horticulture sector to learn how research about BMPs is shared, accessed, and used.

The findings from the research will be used to develop more effective ways for sharing and accessing sustainable horticulture research that supports the adoption of BMPs.
