Interim Report
The Alberta Crop Industry Development Fund Ltd. (ACIDF) is a private not-for-profit company owned by organizations in Alberta’s crop industry. We invest in research, development and pre-commercialization projects and activities to the benefit of producers and industry in the province. Supported primarily by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry, the company manages five investment initiatives. Our portfolio ranges from basic sciences through to support for product development and manufacturing process. The major portion of investment is targeted at production issues and applied sciences with strong emphasis on applied technology that benefit agricultural crop producers. Thanks to the Crop Commissions, Alberta Beef, Researchers, Funding Partners and the Agriculture community for truly making ACIDF the sucess it has been. It takes a great team to produce high quality food. Also ACIDF is very appreciative of the support to try to convince the Alberta NDP Government to keep research going. Without additional funding from the Alberta Government on March 31, 2018 ACIDF will cease to exist. Stay tune, as that may change. It’s that time for the final reports to be completed.
