(PEI-Pollination)

P-E-I is launching a new agriculture program that will help expand the Island's bee population and increase pollination.

The province says the Pollination Expansion Program will help with the purchase of new hives to expand the honey bee sector and provide resources and information for those who want to become beekeepers.

Officials say P-E-I's lowbush blueberry sector and other fruit crops like apples require increased pollination.

The province is also hiring a new apiarist and berry crop development officer, Cameron Menzies, who is expected to lead the program starting this month. (The Canadian Press)

(Que-Peat-Moss-Investment)

The Quebec government is chipping in 2.5-million dollars for a massive expansion plan for Les Tourbieres Berger, a peat moss company in the Lower Saint-Lawrence specializing in the making of horticultural mixtures.

British Columbia is Canada's largest fruit producer, harvesting over 296-thousand tonnes of fruit valued at just under 400-million dollars in 2016. (The Canadian Press)
