About the CBRC

The Canadian Barley Research Coalition (CBRC) is a national not-for-profit organization with a focus on improving profitability and competitiveness for western Canadian barley through long-term research investments.

The CBRC funds long-term research projects such as core barley breeding agreements with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the University of Saskatchewan’s Crop Development Centre and other regional research that aligns with variety development and agronomic priorities.

Created in 2020, the CBRC was started as a collaboration between the Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission, Alberta Barley and the Manitoba Crop Alliance. Membership is open to any organization or association interested in supporting barley research.
