“We are working with farmers to determine their research priorities. This is an opportunity to transform how we do research and attract investment from the private sector. I see world-leading agricultural research happening here, either by leveraging work happening in existing facilities or building brand new ones,” Devin Dreeshen, Minister of Agriculture and Forestry said.
There are six public engagement sessions throughout the province. The government will be seeking input on:
- what farmer-led research means to Albertans
- farmer-led research priorities
- governance models for delivering farmer-led research
The online survey is open until Jan. 31.
