Team Alberta represents a working collaboration between Alberta’s eight crop commissions: Alberta Barley, Alberta Beekeepers Commission, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers, Alberta-British Columbia Seed Growers, Alberta Sugar Beet Growers, Alberta Wheat Commission and the Potato Growers of Alberta.
The crop commissions are producer elected, directed and funded organizations, governed by the Marketing of Agricultural Products Act of the Province of Alberta. Collectively, Team Alberta represents approximately 40,000 farmer members. The commissions work with our respective boards to help farmers succeed by directing funds toward research, market development, communications, education and policy development initiatives that improve the success of Alberta’s farmers.Subscribe To Our Mailing List
