Agriculture is critical to Alberta’s economic future.
There is untold room for growth, job creation and diversification in our agricultural sector.
We need a plan for the future. Our plan should be focused on developing value-added agriculture manufacturing right here in the province, because increasing the value of Alberta-grown products means more money for Alberta farmers and ranchers.
Also, Alberta needs to be a leader in agri-tech innovation, which will help farmers yield more crops per acre and improve efficiency across the supply chain. We also need to make sure that this technology is affordable so that our smaller farmers have the same edge to compete.
But we cannot do it alone. We need to hear from you on how to innovate within this vital area.
We are inviting you to the Agricultural Innovation Consultation with Agriculture Critic Heather Sweet to hear your ideas.
