Key highlights about Dalhousie University strength in the topic area:

Dalhousie University’s Agricultural Campus – home to its Faculty of Agriculture – was established in 1905 in Truro, Nova Scotia, 100 km north of the main campus in Halifax. Modern agriculture at the Agricultural Campus brings together the land and the lab, innovation and invention, students and professors. Our research is helping to innovate new technologies for environmental sustainability, rural growth, and bio-resource innovation in support of the agri-food and aquaculture industries.

In addition to modern and extensive laboratories, the Agricultural Campus claims many research facilities unique to Atlantic Canada, including a 250 hectare farm, extensive pasture, field and turfgrass facilities, greenhouses, an experimental orchard, over 400 hectares of research fields, and a number of outlying research facilities. The MacRae Library on campus houses the largest repository of agricultural resource material in Atlantic Canada.

The Faculty offers 14 undergraduate and two graduate programs (MSc, PhD) in Agriculture to approximately 800 students, 20% of whom are international.
