A $1,600 seed fund set up for the planting of seedlings to help mitigate the effects of climate change and improve crop yields has already given rise to some of the biggest successes in Canada.
The project, dubbed the Calmar Land Projects, was launched by Environment Canada in November, to help farmers and landowners plant seedlings that can withstand drought and provide an alternative to crop damage caused by invasive species such as the tomato, cucumber and pepper pepper plant.
The fund, which is funded with the help of federal and provincial government funding, will initially fund the planting and harvest of seedling varieties in Canada’s northern provinces.
The seedlings will be planted in a range of locations, including remote communities, parks, and forestry lands, as well as on provincial lands.
It will also be planted along the coasts of Nova Scotia and Quebec.
The seedlings are expected to grow up to four feet in height and grow three feet in diameter, which are a good start, according to Environment Canada, and will help farmers improve their crop yields by a further two to three times.
The money will be used to offset the costs of seed planting, fertilization, pest control, and maintenance.
Environment Canada, in a statement, said the funds will help “provide an additional income stream to farmers, particularly those in remote and remote-controlled regions of the country where they are often under a shortage of seed and fertilizer.”
The money, the ministry said, will help increase the yield of the seeds and help farmers save money on fertilizers.
The ministry said the seedling will also help increase yields of the crop by about three to five per cent.
The federal government is set to unveil its final budget on Wednesday, which will likely include $1 billion in funding for crop-related initiatives.
