Competitiveness Through Innovation
Agriculture is the second largest resource-based industry in Alberta, with over 31.1 million acres of farm area. Alberta is renowned for its high-quality grains. It is the advantage upon which we compete globally. The ability of Alberta farmers to retain this competitiveness requires continued investment in innovative, agronomic and genetic research as a means of developing varieties to help farmers improve their operational efficiencies, by increasing yield, improving disease resistance and enhancing agronomic performance as well as end-use quality.
