Sask Wheat Invests $1.6M in eight AgriARM sites

 Sask Wheat has approved $1.6 million in funding over two years for the eight Saskatchewan AgriARM sites. Each site will receive $200,000 which is going towards extension capacity, purchasing new equipment and furthering agronomic research which can increase wheat and whole-farm profitability.

AgriARM is a network of producer-directed applied research and demonstration organizations located across Saskatchewan. Each site operates individually and collaborates on a broad range of projects to generate results relevant to growers over a wide area. AgriARM sites are supported by core funding from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture and receive the majority of funds through project-based funding from governments, commodity groups and private industry.
