Sollio Groupe Cooperatif is the largest agriculture cooperative in Canada, clustering 50 cooperatives and accounting over 7,3 B$ income. The R&D program at the crop production research farm develops new varieties and conducts testing programs to provide the best seeds and advice to their 120 000 affiliate farmers.
The research farm involves 3 breeding programs (Barley, Oat and Soy) and 4 in testing (Winter and Spring Wheat, Forages, and agronomy). The team includes 4 researchers, 8 technicians and a staff of a dozen workers, conducting experimentation on about 90 000 plots spread over 70 locations.
« RnDExperience comes with all the tools we needed for plant breeding. We especially appreciate to manage several species and share various programs efficiently in the same system. » Roxanne Henrie, Wheat and Forage researcher
« At the end of harvest season, data analysis in RnDExp™ has allowed us to understand the potential efficiency gains over our previous tools. » Alexandre Mailloux, Former Director of Research Department
Heterogeneous data and multiple software, with little traceability with complex data transfer
Every breeder was working on his own, and looking for historical data was a challenge
Centralize all data in a unique tool that fits researchers’ needs
All data has been imported in a unique plant breeding software configured to reproduce specific working habits
Save time, avoid errors, and enhance collaboration
Each breeder works with powerful tools. The R&D department gained in efficiency
