Best For Who? Farming Best Management Practices

Alternate Text or Title of article
10:00 - 11:00 a.m. (MDT)

Alberta is a major agricultural producer, and with that comes various environmental impacts for our farmers to consider. They are adapting their practices to reduce these impacts while at the same time navigating current regulatory policies and programs – much the same as farmers across the globe.

In this webinar, we will discuss Alberta’s current policies, programs and adoption rates and compare them to legislation in Australia to understand how uptake of policies works and the sometimes conflicting interests that face farmers and ranchers, both in Canada and globally.
