Olds to take over Alberta’s field crop development centre

October 20, 2020

Olds College will now be home to Alberta Agriculture and Forestry’s field crop development centre following a three-year $10.5-million grant agreement with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry. The move will enable Olds to increase capacity and undertake innovative agricultural research projects, and will also provide valuable learning opportunities for students at the college. “Olds College is focused on delivering research programming that is centered on the needs of producers and industry partners, and we are committed to collaborating with key stakeholders throughout the sector in order to sustainably position and grow barley/triticale research here in Alberta,” said Olds president Stuart Callum.
