ARECA works with partner, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development
The Agricultural Research and Extension Council (ARECA) conducts applied research and extension for farmers across Alberta. The principle partner in this valuable work has been the Government of Alberta. In 2014, that partnership was strengthened with increased funding of ARECA’s work.
ARECA Board Chair, Bill Gaugler, and Vice Chair, Ian Murray, were pleased to meet with Ag Minister, Verlyn Olson to talk about how to better serve farmers and communities in rural Alberta. `ARECA aims to connect producers and government leaders.`says Gaugler. `It was good to talk with Minister Olson about how to connect research with extension with production on the land.`
`We know that farmers need more and better information in order to be successful.` says Vice Chair Murray. “And, we know that ARECA associations are a great way to help farmers access the information they need. We are pleased that the Government of Alberta has increased funding for research and forage associations in 2014 and beyond.”
