Some farmers are concerned with the Province's plan to buy more rail cars to move oil.
Alberta Agriculture Minister, Oneil Carlier, says after last year's grain backlog, the fear oil transportation will take priority over grain is legitimate.
"I've heard from not only the Premier, but also CN and CP (Rail), that they're going to prioritize rail for grain and other resources, including lumber."
Carlier says, he's been in contact with the Province's crop commissions discussing their concerns about how Alberta's planned purchase will affect farmers.
He adds, it's important to know both rail companies have committed to large investments in their operations.
"Each company is purchasing a thousand new hopper cars, and they're purchasing new locomotives to ensure we get our product to market."
Premier Rachel Notley says they plan to move an additional 120,000 barrels of oil a day by rail.
