Operation Pollinator

Operation Pollinator is a Syngenta program focused on research and partnerships to promote the health and well-being of bees and other pollinators. Launched in Western Canada’s farming community in 2017, participating producers agree to seed plots of up to two acres of usually underutilized or lower productivity land to long-term habitat for wild pollinators. 

In return for committing this land to the project, farmers receive high-quality pollinator-friendly wildflower seed for their plots, agronomic advice and some financial support from the program to help offset establishment costs.

A number of producers signed up and planted their seed mix this spring, but more cooperators from Saskatchewan are needed. Please contact the SSCA Office Manager, Gerry Burgess, at 306-371-4231 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

SWF and SSGA Urge Hunters to Stay on Track

August 30, 2017

As the fall weather moves in, record breaking dry conditions are developing in several areas across the province. This increases the potential risk of fires starting from vehicle use, and the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation (SWF) and the Saskatchewan Stock Growers Association (SSGA) are requesting hunters take extra precautions this hunting season.

“We know that the vast majority of hunters take every step to ensure that they leave nothing but their footprints when they hunt, but these dry conditions warrant added vigilance,” says Darrell Crabbe, Executive Director for the SWF.
