Saskatchewan Forage Council Working with Producers on ADOPT Projects
The purpose of the ADOPT program is to accelerate the transfer of knowledge to Saskatchewan producers and ranchers. The ADOPT program will provide funding to help producer groups evaluate and demonstrate new agricultural practices and technologies at the local level. The results of successful trials can then be adopted by farming operations in the region.
The Saskatchewan Forage Council gratefully acknowledges funding provided by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture and industry as well as the cooperation of producers and research sites. Technical assistance for these projects are being provided by staff from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture, University of Saskatchewan, Northeast Agriculture Research Foundation, Western Applied Research Corporation, Wheatland Conservation Area and Agriculture & Agri-Food Canada.
Currently, the Saskatchewan Forage Council is undertaking three ADOPT projects: Forage Variety Demonstration Trials, Integrated Approaches to Control Leafy Spurge in Perennial Pastures and Rolling Oats, Barley and Alfalfa after Emergence. Updates and details will be posted as they become available.
