Harrow Research and Development Centre (Harrow RDC)
The Harrow Research and Development Centre (Harrow RDC) is the largest greenhouse research complex facility in North America, one of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) network of 20 research and development centres, and the location for the Canadian Clonal Genebank greenhouse and orchard.
Harrow RDC develops and transfers new technologies for the production and protection of greenhouse vegetables and field crops, including soybeans, dry beans, corn, winter wheat, and tomatoes. Moreover, it is a lead contributor in research on the quality and sustainable use of Ontario soils as methods to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and nutrient losses from agricultural soils. This research activity enhances the environmental health of farmlands in the Great Lakes basin.
