Research has been an integral part of the Alberta Potato Industry from the very beginning. Several advancements in managing the land, the crop and the farm are very evident today.
The PGA continues to advance the potato growing industry by funding new and ongoing research projects. Our research fund is provided mainly from a research levy on potatoes grown in the Province.
Research grants also contribute to research projects. Potato researchers apply for funding directly to the research committee of the PGA
