Determining cost-competitiveness of Canada’s grain producers

March 11, 2013, Saskatoon, SK - A new project will find out how cost-competitive Canadian grain producers are on factors influencing cost of production versus producers in competing countries. The Farmers of North America Strategic Agriculture Institute (FNA-STAG) is leading the work, together with its partners, Farm Credit Canada (FCC) and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

The primary objective of the research is providing a comprehensive analysis of the international cost-competitiveness of Canada's grain producers and facilitating an enhanced understanding of the advantages and disadvantages Canadian grain farmers have/face on their farms compared to major competitor countries. The project will deliver analysis on cost-competitiveness that will help primary producers identify areas of strength and weakness that can be exploited or addressed.

A project Advisory Group has been formed, and includes representatives from FCC, Grain Growers of Canada, Manitoba Canola Growers, Canadian Federation of Agriculture and FNA-STAG Board of Directors.

Work on the project has begun, and is expected to be complete by the end of 2013.
