The London Research and Development Centre (London RDC) located in London, Ontario was established in 1951. It is one of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's (AAFC) network of 20 research and development centres. 

The Centre is associated with two satellite locations:

  • Research and containment level greenhouse facilities at London; and

  • Research Farm at Vineland Station focused on alternative and environmentally acceptable crop protection technologies for tree fruits and small fruits.

Areas of Research

AAFC scientists at the London RDC conduct research on field crops and bio-based products/processes, develop and transfer technologies for integrated pest management strategies and lead research in crop genomics and biotechnology. The centre also supports research on air, water and nutrients.

The centre is one of seven sites for AAFC’s Minor Use Pesticide Program where potential pest management trials are conducted to support Canadian growers and industries.
