WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA – Looking to the future in research, policy, trade and Canadian crops is the focus of the 2017 Canadian Global Crops Symposium.

The event is April 10-12 at the Hyatt Regency Calgary in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and is hosted by the Canada Grains Council. The event will feature numerous presentations and roundtable discussions.

Topics to be covered include crop development, global grain supply and demand, Canada’s trade agenda for agriculture, sustainability, public trust, plant breeding innovation, innovations in soybeans and canola, and the Trump effect on Canadian food. 

Rabobank’s Stephen Nicholson will address consolidation in the agriculture industry. The presentation will look at those trends, differences in the current trend from previous periods of consolidation and the implications.

Frédéric Seppey with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada will address Canada’s trade agenda for agriculture. It will provide an overview of Canada’s priorities and approaches to protect and expand Canadian agriculture and agri-food trade in international markets. It will encompass Canadian engagement within the multilateral institutions, priority markets, and on trade negotiations.

A panel of speakers that includes representatives from Richardson International, the Alberta Wheat Commission, and Bunge Canada will address grain logistics. They will provide perspective on what the grain logistics system of the future needs to look like to be successful, considering the expected changes to the Canadian Transportation Act.

In addition to the presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to network with presidents and CEOs of many of Canada’s largest agribusiness corporations.
