The GCA HUB

A Partner to Plant Research and Biotech Companies

  • Strong agri-business hub that hosts a sheer volume of players in the agri-business—from big, international players, to local entrepreneurs. That includes various research organizations with active R&D teams that specialize in crop analysis (soybeans; corn; potatoes; peas; wheat and canola) and organizations that require easy access to producers and farmers of a variety of crops.
  • That is because our region has been recognized for having a unique mix of soil types. Even within the same quarter sometimes, you’ll go from sandy loam to a clay loam within hundreds of metres, which provides multiple options for different needs in terms of seeding, drainage, setting depth and tillage.
  • Easy access to research and development centres in the GCA, part of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC), a network of 20 research and development centres.
  • Work alongside sector-leading organizations in the GCA such as Bayer CropScience Canada, Corteva Agriscience, Nutrien Ag Solutions, University of Manitoba Research Farm, Manitoba Crop Alliance and more.
