The Results Driven Agriculture Research (RDAR) organization elected its first board and replaced the appointed interim board put in place when Minister Devon Dreeshen created the arms-length non-profit.
RDAR has 33 voting member organizations from diverse agricultural and research backgrounds. Its purpose is to establish Alberta ag research priorities, evaluate funding applications, and allocate the Alberta government’s ag-specific research funding.
