IWCA series: Ana Badea

Ana Badea is a Manitoba-based research scientist for barley breeding and genetics, leading Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s (AAFC) largest two-row and hulless barley breeding program at the Brandon Research and Development Centre. Badea is also involved in the development and training of the next generation of researchers and agriculture professionals as an adjunct professor at the University of Manitoba, where she helps guide graduate students as a co-supervisor and member of the advisory committee.

Badea was nominated as an IWCA recipient by Dean Dias, CEO at Cereals Canada, who, in addition to her leadership at AAFC, highlighted Badea’s innovative work to develop new malting, food and feed barley cultivars with high yield and strong disease resistance, as well as the various advocacy initiatives she works on within the industry.

In this episode, Badea and Top Crop Manager West editor Derek Clouthier talk about her research, what drives her passion for agriculture and where she hopes to see the industry go in the future.
