Western Canada Agronomy Research Capacity Study

In collaboration with several Western Canadian producer crop commodity organizations, the Western Grains Research Foundation (WGRF) commissioned a study by Toma and Bouma Management Consultants to evaluate agronomy research capacity in Western Canada. 

This project provides an inventory (capital and human resources) of agronomic research capacity in Western Canada, and projected capacity to 2020.

This study and its results is the first step in the development of a plan to optimize agronomy research capacity in Western Canada. A Full Report and Executive Summary of the report are posted below.

WGRF is inviting comments and feedback on this study prior to January 31, 2015. All comments can be emailed to:
