2017 Semi-Annual Meeting

All registered wheat growers are encouraged to attend the third Sask Wheat Semi-Annual Meeting, June 21, 2017, during Farm Progress Show in Regina. This meeting is a chance for wheat producers to meet with Sask Wheat staff and Board members, to share their input on the industry and their check-off investments, and to learn more about the work Sask Wheat is doing for producers.

mario-tenuta-460x320Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Mario Tenuta of the University of Manitoba. He will be talking about nitrogen loss when applied at shallow depths and the future of nitrogen management. The need to reduce nitrous oxide emissions from agricultural soils will become as important as yield when considering use of N fertilizers. This presentation will also cover the practices you can do to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while maintaining or improving crop yield and efficient use of added nitrogen.

Registration is free and includes a complimentary breakfast.
