The Saskatchewan Fruit Growers Association
(SFGA) is in the process of reconstructing its website, and since the site is transitioning to a new provider, its domain was discontinued. SFGA’s online presence has been limited to Facebook for the past few months. The SFGA is also transitioning their annual conference from Crop Production Week
(held mid-January), to the Saskatchewan Green Trades Conference (held early November). Fruit grower attendance at the 2016 Green Trades Conference was very low, and since the SFGA website is down, communication within the industry has been limited in 2016/2017. Despite these hiccups, the industry continues to expand and new processed products continue to be developed and marketed.
The Saskatchewan Fruit News is intended to keep readers up to date on the industry, and help growers approach the coming season with confidence and enthusiasm. This edition includes the following articles:
