The Manitoba Wheat and Barley Growers Association focuses on research and market development, as outlined in our most recent Strategic Plan. However, the MWBGA is often asked to comment on specific agricultural issues as a spokesperson for the spring wheat and barley growers of Manitoba.
The MWBGA largely confines our activity to those issues that either directly or indirectly impact the spring wheat and barley industries. The MWBGA provides input to agricultural issues through involvement of two organizations.
- A Commodity (Producer) Organization Member of the Keystone Agricultural Producers (KAP).
- A member of the Interprovincial Committee on Policy. The committee is comprised of directors from each of the three wheat commissions in Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan. The mandate of the committee is to collaborate on policy issues that are of mutual interest to the three wheat commodity groups and where obvious synergies exists and benefits can be derived from collaboratively addressing such issues.
