Good food starts with good research!

From the Field to Your basket.  We cover a lot of ground.

Do you know how Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) agricultural scientists make sure the food you eat is safe, high quality, and produced in sustainable ways?

Our talented and dedicated scientists are proudly contributing to Canadian food and agriculture in many different ways. The Fields of Science campaign showcases some of our scientists and their work in AAFC’s 20 research centres across the country. We explore how our scientists help farmers improve and protect their crops and produce food for Canadians.

  • Meet a plant doctor who is making sure Canadians can “lift their glass of wine and say this is the best wine they ever tasted.”
