The Summerland Research and Development Centre was established in 1914, in the heart of the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. The Centre consists of two independent research sites: Agassiz and Summerland.

The scientific research at the Centre focuses on high value horticultural crops, particularly wine grapes and tree fruits. Developing strategies to ensure the success of our agricultural industries is of high importance at the Centre—specifically by promoting the generation of knowledge and technologies for environmentally and economically sustainable production of agri-food products.

Summerland Research and Development Centre is a Minor Use Pesticides Program site which conducts research trials on potential solutions to grower-identified pest problems.
