Strategic Policy Paper

This paper provides a brief overview of Western Canada’s crop sector and presents some issues on the factors affecting the innovative capacity of the sector today. The intention of this paper is to provide a basis for discussion in advance of the March 2013 round table meetings to be held in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. It is not intended to be all-encompassing or completely comprehensive; but rather to provide some basic information on the crop sector in Western Canada today.
