About CWRC

Who We Are

The Canadian Wheat Research Coalition (CWRC) is a collaboration between Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat), Alberta Grains and Manitoba Crop Alliance (MCA) aimed at improving the net relative profitability of wheat for western Canadian producers.

The CWRC facilitates a collaborative approach to producer funding of regional and national research projects in variety development and agronomy, including core wheat breeding agreements with universities, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and the Canadian National Wheat Cluster under AAFC’s Canadian Agricultural Partnership program and successor programming. Additional regional projects that align with variety development and agronomic priorities will also be considered for funding through the CWRC.

The CWRC is administered by a host commission, which rotates every three years. The current host commission is Manitoba Crop Alliance.
