Keystone Agricultural Producers is calling for all five pillars of the current Agricultural Policy Framework to be reviewed during the development of APF 2.

Agriculture Minister Chuck Strahl announced this week a series of consultations on the new framework will begin shortly.

Vice President Ian Wishart says some of the pillars need a lot of work, while others barely got off the ground.

Wishart is also unsure whether a five pillar approach is necessary pointing to the Canadian Federation of Agriculture's 3 point Canadian Farm Bill.

It includes business risk management, public benefits, and strategic investment.

Wishart feels what the policy looks like in the end will be greatly determined on whether government is willing to listen to farmers.

The current APF expires in 2008.
