Centre Honoured by Nova Scotia Fruit Growers

In recognition of 100 years of cooperation and support, the Nova Scotia Fruit Growers Association (NSFGA) has bestowed an honourary membership on the Atlantic Food & Horticulture Research Centre (AFHRC) for their efforts to help develop a viable and sustainable tree fruit industry in Atlantic Canada. The award was accepted January 26, 2011 on behalf of AFHRC by Dr. Mark Hodges at the NSFGA's 147th Annual Convention.

Congratulations to the staff at the AFHRC, past and present for their contribution to the centre's unique research programs that address problems throughout the Canadian horticultural and food system while emphasizing the regional needs of Atlantic Canada.
