We want to see Alberta agriculture compete on a global scale. RDAR focuses on better ideas and new technologies, with effective ways to implement them.
We grow from contribution. What began as a series of consultations with farmers, ranchers and other stakeholders throughout Alberta’s agricultural industry has evolved into a new vision for agriculture research. An important conclusion was drawn—that producers, in collaboration with research partners, are best positioned to determine agricultural research priorities.
That’s why RDAR was created, and why transparency and communicating plans are a major pillar of the way we operate. We aim to share as much information with you as we can. Here, you’ll find records and reporting of our Board’s activities and efforts since its inception.

RDAR 2020 Review – How far we’ve come
In March 2020, Alberta’s government created RDAR as an arm’s length organization and turned over decision-making on Alberta agriculture research to producers. One year on, RDAR is busy fulfilling our mission ~ to select and approve investments into projects that will increase Alberta’s agriculture and food sector competitiveness. Here is a presentation to let us reflect on all that our young, vibrant organization has accomplished in its first year in business.
