The Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat) will provide an unprecedented $1.6 million funding to eight research facilities.
Sask Wheat approved the money over two years to the Saskatchewan AgriARM sites. Each group will receive $200,000 to be put towards extension, purchasing new equipment and furthering agronomic research.
Sask Wheat Chair Brett Halstead said AgriARM has conducted important research for Saskatchewan farmers over the last few years.
“From testing the effects of post-anthesis UAN on wheat protein to evaluation of row spacing and seeding density on the crop development and yield,” Halstead said. “Sask Wheat is pleased to provide AgriARM researchers with the funding they need to continue their research and provide Saskatchewan farmers with unique, Saskatchewan-based and regionally specific agronomic tools and techniques that will provide benefits to their farms.”Click here to see more...
