Municipal District of Greenview No. 16’s Agricultural Service Board is appointed under the Agricultural Service Board Act of Alberta. A.S.B.’s were first conceived by Alberta Agriculture in 1945. The intent was to have a local grassroots body to work with area agricultural producers on issues and concerns specific to that municipality. Every rural municipality in Alberta has an appointed Agricultural Service Board. The A.S.B. and agricultural department staff under the supervision of an Agricultural Fieldman, work under the Agricultural Service Board Act, the Weed Control Act, Agricultural Pests Act, the Soil Conservation Act and the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Acts.
The A.S.B.’s of Alberta meet and discuss issues of joint concern at annual regional meetings and then at an annual Provincial A.S.B. Conference.
Agricultural Fieldmen have always been central to the success of Agricultural Service Boards. They develop, implement, and control programs designed to carry out priorities and policies set by their Agricultural Service Board. For more information visit https://aaaf.ab.ca/.
