Administrative history

The Nova Scotia Blueberry Institute was formed in 1981, a joint venture between wild blueberry growers, the Nova Scotia Agricultural College and the provincial and federal governments. Douglas Bragg was a founding director and instrumental in the early days of the institute's development and the building of the research field station, which opened on 6 August 1983 at the Debert Air Industrial Park. The institute's goals included investigating research programs and assisting in public education and demonstration programs in coordination with the Department of Agriculture and Marketing. The institute also participated in the acquisition of blueberry fields in Debert for research purposes.
