Efficient Greenhouse Water Recycling Systems

With an investment of $114,684 from the Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP), this project is being undertaken to increase the recirculation of nutrient water in Ontario's greenhouse sector.

The goal is to achieve maximum recycling, improving the efficiency of water use and eliminating fertilizer waste. This project, led by the Ontario Greenhouse Alliance (TOGA), will be managed by a project steering committee which includes representatives from each of the municipal partners, Town of Kingsville and Town of Leamington, and representatives from TOGA and each of its two members, Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers and Flowers Canada (Ontario) Inc. as well as Ontario Ministry of Agriculture Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) staff as collaborators/technical resources.
