Launch of farmer-led research in Alberta
21 Oct 2020
The $37-million annual agreement will see the organization prioritize agriculture research projects that reflect the needs of farmers and ranchers in Alberta.
RDAR has also finalized its initial research priorities and will release a targeted call for proposals.
“Alberta’s farmers and ranchers told us that they wanted to direct research priorities – not government. We heard that loud and clear, and so this agreement puts them in the driver’s seat. RDAR will transform agriculture research in Alberta and help our agriculture sector compete internationally.”
Devin Dreeshen, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry
RDAR research priorities include:
- Enhanced productivity, profitability and competitiveness
- Sustainable and responsible agricultural production
