Our Priorities

Alberta Barley is a farmer-directed, not-for-profit organization that represents Alberta’s barley farmers. Alberta Barley collects a mandatory, but refundable, check-off and reinvests it to grow the barley industry—and its profitability. The organization works collaboratively within all levels of agriculture to achieve tangible results that benefit Alberta’s barley growers.


Barley is Canada’s third largest crop, after wheat and canola.


Research is Alberta Barley’s number one, farmer-driven investment to maximize barley’s potential.

Market Development

Alberta Barley actively works with its membership, government and industry to maintain existing markets and identify and develop new market opportunities.


Alberta Barley benefits barley producers by representing their interests to government and regulatory organizations.
