About the CWRC
The Canadian Wheat Research Coalition (CWRC) is a collaboration between Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat), the Alberta Wheat Commission (AWC) and the Manitoba Wheat and Barley Growers Association (MWBGA) aimed at improving the net relative profitability of wheat for western Canadian producers.
The CWRC will facilitate a collaborative approach to producer funding of regional and national research projects in variety development and agronomy including the Canadian National Wheat Cluster under Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Canadian Agricultural Partnership program and successor programming to core wheat breeding agreements with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and universities. Additional regional projects that align with variety development and agronomic priorities will also be considered for funding through the CWRC.
The CWRC will be administered by a host commission, which will rotate every three years starting with Sask Wheat.
