Knowledge Creation

If the agricultural industry is to keep producing more and better food while consuming fewer resources and using less fertilizer and pesticide, it needs to be constantly developing new knowledge and technologies. Saskatchewan’s producers enthusiastically adopt new practices and technologies that show potential to increase yields or reduce inputs.

Saskatchewan Agriculture currently supports these initiatives designed to facilitate the creation of knowledge or the development of technology that meets the specific needs of Saskatchewan producers.

The Agriculture Development Fund was created to fund agricultural research that is specific to Saskatchewan and/or relevant to Saskatchewan producers. Each year, public and private researchers apply for a share of more than $14 million in ADF funding. Successful applicants are chosen on the basis of their research’s potential to create growth opportunities or enhance the competitiveness of the provincial agricultural industry. Past investments have resulted in new knowledge, new technologies and new crop cultivars.

The Canadian Wheat Alliance, formally the Canadian Wheat Flagship Strategic Alliance, is a joint effort of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, the University of Saskatchewan, the Province of Saskatchewan and the National Research Council Canada to increase the profitability of Canadian wheat producers through the development of new wheat varieties that can withstand changing climatic conditions and the associated disease and pest issues.
