Manitoba Agriculture delivers programming that supports the development of Manitoba's agriculture and agri-processing sector while protecting agri-environmental resources.

The Agri-Resource Branch is the point of contact in government for leadership and advice on agri-environmental issues and represents Manitoba in regional and national discussions. The Branch also oversees Manitoba's agri-environment programming.

Staff of the Agri-Resource Branch focus their efforts on the development of programs, policies, regulations and extension materials to facilitate the adoption of beneficial management practices (BMPs).
