Saskatchewan’s pedigreed seed industry is worth an estimated $790 million to the province’s economy and is the foundation of an $11 billion provincial crop industry.
SEED MATTERS is a quarterly feature in The Western Producer offered by the Saskatchewan Seed Growers’ Association for producer information.
