The Nova Scotia Tree Fruit Research Foundation

The Nova Scotia Tree Fruit Research Foundation was established in 1988 by the Nova Scotia Fruit Growers' Association to promote research in the tree fruit industry. The Association felt that the tree fruit industry should be more involved in research initiatives and should provide direction for research.

The Research Foundation has recently sponsored a number of research projects co-funded by the Apple Industry Development Fund (AIDF). All activities undertaken by the Foundation are for the benefit of the tree fruit industry.

Results of all the work done through the Research Foundation are communicated to growers via orchard tours, meetings, newsletters and the NSFGA Annual Convention and Report. Research results are available to all tree fruit growers. The Board of Directors of the Research Foundation consists of four growers (members of the NSFGA), three government personnel and one Agriculture Development Institute (ADI) representative.
