Ag Canada tops up greenhouse gas research

The federal agriculture department is adding $2.2 million to a $27-million program to research ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to farming.

The University of Guelph is working with funding from 47 countries involved in the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Greenhouse Gases.

The research is in four areas -  livestock systems, cropping systems, agricultural water use efficiency and agro-forestry.
