Moncton, NB March 31, 2022 — Allan Ling, long-time Chair of the Atlantic Grains Council (AGC) passed away in April of 2018. As Chair he provided strong leadership and was instrumental in leading cereal and oilseed growers and others in the industry to adopt a voluntary levy on the sale of cereals and oilseeds. The levy has enabled the Atlantic Grains Council to lead with producer priorities and direct nearly $750,000 to coordinate and support research required by farmers in the region.

In recognition of Allan’s contribution to Atlantic agriculture In July of 2018 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada named a new barley variety developed by AAFC scientists working in Ottawa and Charlottetown as AAC Ling. The Atlantic Grains Council is pleased to recognize that AAC Ling had the top barley yield in the Maritimes 2.49 tonnes per acre on the farm of Eric Theriault, Eastern Grains, Drummond, NB in the 2021 Yield Enhancement Network yield competition. Hopefully, quality is in the name “Ling” as it applied to Allan and now to the barley variety AAC Ling.
