Research programs

Our research is focused on the sustainability and productivity of the land base, enhancement of crop and livestock production, and maintenance of soil, water and food quality as affected by agriculture and other human activities.

Sampling soil in the field.

Sustainable food production and communities

Sustaining and increasing the production of crops by enhancing soil management practices, and reducing soil degradation that threatens food production.

Students gathering water samples.

Healthy land, air and water

The use of an integrated approach to agricultural land management within the environment (agricultural landscapes and watersheds) to explore approaches for managing soils and crops to minimize contamination of land, air and water.

Cold region soil processes and management

Developing agricultural management practices for improving soil processes, agronomic productivity, and environmental health in northern environments where soils undergo annual freezing and thawing.

Research Chairs


Our network of facilities can be found both on campus and in assorted locations within the province of Manitoba. Our highly collaborative research programming allows our faculty and students to conduct work at locations across the province including Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Brandon Research and Development Centre, the Canada-Manitoba Crop Diversification Centre in Carberry, and the Churchill Northern Student Centre.

Through the collaboration with other University of Manitoba departments and outside partners, our researchers and students have access to equipment to conduct specialized research in agronomy, soil biomass, environmental conditions, gases, molecular biology, and soil ecology among others.
