Sask Wheat provides feedback to AAFC’s SAS consultations

Sask Wheat provided feedback on behalf of Saskatchewan wheat producers to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) during the Sustainable Agriculture Strategy (SAS) consultations. The Sask Wheat submission states that through innovations, Saskatchewan farmers have been making meaningful emissions reductions on-farm for decades, while consistently growing more food, largely through per-acre yield increases. It is vital for Canada that Saskatchewan agricultural producers remain competitive and profitable, producing food for a growing world population and, at the same time, ensuring a healthy sustainable environment for future generations. Research and variety development play a significant role in the environmental, economic, and social sustainability of producers. Sask Wheat views research and variety development as the primary way to increase the sustainability and resiliency of Saskatchewan wheat producers.
