Markets, Agronomy, and key issues impacting farmers will be the focus of two upcoming producer meetings in Lacombe.

The Alberta Canola Producers Commission and Alberta Wheat Commission are hosting producer meetings a week apart at the Lacombe Memorial Centre, first up is the Canola group on Tuesday, followed by the Wheat group on the 29th.

Local farmer Terry Young currently serves as a Director on both Commission's, he says the carbon tax is also top of mind for producers "and that's of concern to us because yes its not going to effect farm fuel, but any energy intensive industry such as fertilizer, we're going to be hit pretty hard with the carbon tax.  It's a major concern with us".

Young says the goal of the meetings is to simply inform producers so they have more tools to advance their industry.
