The Morden Research and Development Centre (Morden RDC) was established in 1915 in Morden, Manitoba. It is one of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's (AAFC) network of 20 research and development centres. 

The Centre is associated with four satellite locations:

  • The Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Research in Health and Medicine (CCARM), located at the Albrechtsen Research Centre;

  • The Richardson Centre for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals (RCFFN), located at the University of Manitoba, Fort Garry campus;

  • The Canadian Centre for Grain Storage Research, located at the University of Manitoba, Fort Garry campus; and

  • The Cereal Quality Laboratory, located in Winnipeg.

Areas of Research

The Morden RDC conducts research in cereal (wheat, oats and barley), pulse, and oilseed (flax and sunflower) crop pathology; genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics; breeding and genetic enhancement of dry beans and soybean; crop production systems; stored-grain products; bioactive and quality traits to improve food for health; and sustainable and profitable agri-systems and agro-ecosystem health.

The Richardson Centre for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals focuses on value-added functional foods and nutraceuticals which offer health promotion, performance enhancement, disease prevention, and management. The Canadian Centre for Agri-Food Research in Health and Medicine is dedicated to understanding the potential health-related benefits found in nutraceuticals, functional foods, and natural health products derived from Canadian grown crops and plants.

Sector Needs

The Morden RDC supports innovative research, development, technology and knowledge transfer activities related to the following AAFC Science Sector Strategies:
