This year marks several significant milestones in the Department of Renewable Resources: the 100th Anniversary of soil science education and research, the 90th Anniversary of the Breton Research Plots, and the 57th Anniversary of the Ellerslie Research Station. From agriculture, to forestry, to land reclamation and conservation, soils are the lifeblood of our ecosystems. Our staff and students are making important contributions to the field of soil science. As a Department, we are continually investing in research capacity related to soils, with new research laboratories, infrastructure, and academic staff who bring innovative ideas and energy to the Department.
