In summer 2019, Saskatchewan Pulse Growers (SPG) submitted an agency establishment plan to the Ministry of Agriculture. This plan requested the inclusion of fenugreek into SPG's mandate and the establishment of a non-refundable levy. The ministry requested a detailed analysis from the Agri-Food Council (Council), including a recommendation for how to proceed.
From September 16 to October 31, 2019, Council conducted an online survey open to all Saskatchewan producers and residents to gauge support for the inclusion of fenugreek into the mandate of SPG.
A summary of the results is available below.
- There were seven responses submitted.
- Of these responses, all but one individual expressed support for the proposed fenugreek establishment plan.
- Council followed up with one individual who left their contact information.
Council is currently finalizing a recommendation for the ministry regarding next steps for SPG's proposed fenugreek establishment plan.
