Round-Up

Drawing Insight: a day for convergence about H20

Water is one of the most important components for sustaining our farms, our communities, and our economy.

This year's Round-Up was all about water: Managing when there is too little or too much, maintaining its quality, and successfully securing and protecting water supplies for the short and long term.

RDAR's 2024 Round-Up was a one-day special event for everyone interested in how Alberta manages its water resources, especially how water affects the agricultural sector.

Participants heard from peers — producers, researchers, policy-makers and processors — about how to manage production and processing practices in varying conditions. Researchers heard producers' challenges while sharing their expertise. Industry leaders shared their insights on broader water issues and how policy and investments may affect business practices.
