Ag-West Bio commissioned a study exploring the overall number of research staff in crop in western Canada since the 1970's, in both the public and private sector. Is plant breeding capacity on the decline? What have the changes been within different crops? What are the trends in funding of breeding efforts?

Researcher John Clarke presented his findings at the University of Saskatchewan Thursday, November 3, 2011 at the University of Saskatchewan Faculty Club, Saskatoon, SK.
