Agriculture Extension Services Move To Humboldt

Released on December 18, 2019

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture will move agriculture extension services to the City of Humboldt in March 2020.  The region is currently served by an office in Watrous.

“Establishing an office in Humboldt allows us to maximize the positive impact of our extension services on the agriculture community,” Agriculture Minister David Marit said.  “We will continue to serve our clients in the Watrous region from our Humboldt office, while expanding specialists’ reach by being co-located with Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation in a larger centre.”

The move will bring the ministry and Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation services together in the same community, enhancing the services offered by both organizations to producers in the region.  Staff currently employed in Watrous will continue in their roles in Humboldt.

“The City of Humboldt is a strong agricultural hub in Saskatchewan and the agri-environmental programming and extension services offered by regional specialists will serve the area well,” Marit said.

The Ministry of Agriculture has 10 regional offices located across the province, staffed with agriculture extension specialists.  The extension team provides information and technical assistance on a broad range of agriculture topics including production information, available funding programs and research findings.
