Areas of Focus / Commodities

The BC Living Lab uses a production systems approach to define and develop practices that farmers are ready and willing to implement. The ACS program, designed by AAFC, focuses on soil-based beneficial management practices (BMPs) that can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sequester carbon. As a result, we have worked closely with the following commodity groups to assemble the Living Lab:

  • Forage and Cattle
  • Perennial Row Crops
  • Dairy
  • Field Vegetables  

These four commodity groups were confirmed through industry consultation and a review of existing research on climate mitigation practices. Representation from the commodities within each identified focus and across relevant growing regions in BC is an important aspect for all stages of the Living Lab.
