In partnerships with many private and public partners, FIOINC realizes research and development projects (R&D) to improve genetic selections, study durable growing method or integrated pests management and prolong the growing season. Innovation is in the center of our activity.

Genetic improvement
of strawberry and raspberry

We have been working for more than 20 years to improve the genetic selections of strawberry and raspberry with a priority on taste and nutrition. Indeed, it has been scientifically proved that our strawberry Authentique Orléans, rich in polyphenols, favors glucose management in diabetes

Our partners are Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Lareault Nursery, Phytoclone and many international breeding companies.

Soilless production of strawberry

Our unique durable production technique in peat substrate eliminates the need for soil fumigation and allows full recovey of water and nutrients leachates. Yields are improved and taste is exceptional.

Our partners are Université Laval, NSERC and Berger Peat Moss

Soilless production of raspberry

Our durable production technique in peat substrate eliminates the need of soil fumigation, favor optimal use of water and nutrients and ensure high yields and exceptional fruit quality.

Our partners are Université Laval, NSERC and Fafard Peat Moss

Use of biofongicide to control powdery mildew in strawberry

This technique, originating from greenhouse vegetable culture, allows to reduce the use of phytosanitary products. The technology is very efficient in peat culture.

Our partners are : Université Laval, Organic Federation of Agriculture and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

Protected culture of soilless blackberry

Blackberry production was greatly improved thanks to the collaboration of experts from the National Research Council of Canada (NRC)
