Ag Demonstration of Practices and Technologies (ADOPT)

The goal of the ADOPT program is to accelerate the transfer of knowledge to Saskatchewan producers and ranchers.

The ADOPT program provides funding to help producer groups demonstrate and evaluate new agricultural practices and technologies at the local level. The results of successful trials can then be adopted by farming operations in the region.


Funding is awarded on a competitive basis. Each producer group will be eligible for funding of up to $10,000 per site per project to a maximum of $75,000 per year. Each producer group will be eligible for funding up to $20,000 per site per project for livestock projects to a maximum of $100,000 per year with recognizing the higher cost having live animals in the project.

Generally, funding will be awarded for projects with a one-year duration. Exceptions will be considered for demonstrations that require more than one year to complete, such as biennial or perennial crops.
