Making Sure Farmers’ Voices are Heard
SaskCrops has submitted its response to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Sustainable Agriculture Strategy (SAS) consultation.
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada launched the consultations with the goal of “helping to direct collective action to improve environmental performance in the sector over the long-term, support farmers’ livelihoods and strengthen the business vitality of the Canadian agricultural industry.”
The SaskCrops SAS submission illustrates that Saskatchewan’s annual crop producers are unique across Canada in their low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and high agricultural intensity. They have made and continue to make meaningful contributions that will help Canada meet environmental goals and increase Canadian agriculture’s resiliency.
SaskCrops is made up of SaskBarley, SaskCanola, SaskFlax, SaskOats, SaskWheat and Saskatchewan Pulse Growers.
