Team Alberta represents a working collaboration between Alberta’s four crop commissions: Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers and the Alberta Wheat Commission.
The crop commissions are producer elected, directed and funded organizations, governed by the Marketing of Agricultural Products Act of the Province of Alberta. The commissions collect a mandatory, refundable levy on every tonne of wheat, barley, pulses or canola sold. Collectively, Team Alberta represents approximately 20,000 farmer members. The crop 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
Alberta Barley is a farmer-directed, not-for-profit organization representing Alberta’s barley farmers. Alberta Barley collects a mandatory but refundable check-off and reinvests it to grow the barley industry and its profitability. The organization works collaboratively within all levels of agriculture to achieve tangible results that benefit Alberta’s barley growers.
The Alberta Canola Producers Commission is the province’s first refundable check-off producer organization. The mission of Alberta Canola is to support the long-term success of canola farmers in Alberta through research, extension, consumer engagement, and advocacy for canola farmers.
Alberta Pulse Growers
The Alberta Pulse Growers Commission represents 6,000 growers of field pea, dry bean, lentil, chickpea, faba bean and soybean in Alberta. Our vision is to have Alberta pulses recognized by consumers as environmentally friendly, healthy and nutritious and by all producers as an essential element in a sustainable cropping system.
