If you log onto the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers (SPG) website, you will notice that things aren’t where they used to be! Effective today, SPG launched a bright, and visually appealing new version of www.saskpulse.com. The goal of the website re-design was to make it easy for pulse growers in Saskatchewan to find all the information they need to grow, sell, and market their pulse crops – whether they’re accessing it from a computer, tablet or smartphone, says Amanda Ryan, SPG’s Director of Communications & Market Promotion.
“As more and more of our growers are using a variety of technology to find information online, we thought this was an ideal time to re-do our website to ensure we can be their No. 1 source for information,” Ryan says. “One of SPG’s main focuses is to keep pulse growers in Saskatchewan informed about the industry, and our new website is a great tool for providing the most up-to-date information.”
The new website retains all the key features of the old site, but the information is easier to find and the visuals allow for easier navigation by users. Visitors can find current and past issues of all SPG publications (Pulse Market Report, PulsePoint magazine, Pulse School episodes, annual reports, and more) and can also easily view and search the Pulse Companies List (a complete listing of all the registered companies in Canada that buy and sell pulse crops). Visitors can also see all of SPG’s currently funded research projects and sign up to receive email updates with news and publications.
“SPG has a sophisticated communications program and we wanted to make that information easily accessible to growers,” Ryan says. “This new website makes it easy to find information, which is important because our growers range in age and computer fluency.”
The new website is now live. Visit www.saskpulse.com for more information, and to check it out.
SPG represents over 18,000 pulse crop producers in Saskatchewan. Accountable to and funded by growers, SPG’s strategic direction is guided by a seven member, producer-elected Board of Directors. SPG’s mandate is to provide leadership for a profitable Saskatchewan pulse industry through research, market development and communications.
