The Plant and Seed Technologies program is uniquely positioned to facilitate the delivery of native shrub, forb and graminoids species for reclamation by:

  • assisting industry and practitioners in more clearly understanding and articulating the need for shrub seedlings;
  • assisting commercial nurseries in developing the technologies necessary to successfully propagate native plants on a commercial scale; and
  • supporting adoption and deployment of native seeds and seedlings by SMEs by providing guidance on selection, transportation, storage and seeding/planting.

Our mission is to develop practical methods and technologies for the collection, treatment and delivery of native boreal seeds and plants.
