Saskatchewan agriculture industry benefits from funding for applied research projects

Today, the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan announced that 56 Agriculture Demonstration of Practices and Technologies program (ADOPT) projects and eight Strategic Field Program (SFP) projects received more than $1.4 million in funding in 2023.

The ADOPT program provides funding to assist producer groups and First Nations communities to evaluate and demonstrate new agricultural practices and technologies at the local level. ADOPT focuses on practical, short-term research projects that can be applied by producers soon after completion.

The SFP provides funding for relevant and timely research to agriculture producers in Saskatchewan and helps to develop new best practices that reinforce Saskatchewan's global leadership in sustainable agriculture production and expertise.

Applied research projects like these will be demonstrated at Agri-ARM sites throughout the province this year for producers to take part in learning first-hand about the new technologies and production practices.
