Director Elections

Sask Wheat holds elections every two years. The first Director election was in 2013, when all seven positions were elected. Four of the Directors were elected to four-year terms, while three of the Directors were elected to temporary two-year terms to allow for the election cycle to be installed. Those three director positions were up for election in 2015 and all of the Director positions are now four-year terms.

The Sask Wheat Director elections are run according to The Wheat Development Plan Regulations of The Agri-Food Act, 2004. The Regulations determine who is eligible to run for office, who is eligible to vote, the requirements for a returning officer and the conduct of the elections.

Latest Research

Nitrogen Fixation in Triticale and Wheat

This project aims to generate Nitrogen fixing wheat plants that will be developed from engineered triticale plants containing mitochondrial genome enriched with nitrogen fixation (nif) genes. This research builds on the recently developed AAFC nif cluster, optimized for expression in triticale/wheat mitochondria.
