CropSphere 2019

The annual CropSphere agricultural conference will be in Saskatoon on January 15 and 16, 2019, during Crop Production Week. Once again, CropSphere will be held at TCU Place in downtown Saskatoon.


The conference features sessions on market outlook, research, and agronomy, along with sessions specific to each crop. This year's keynote speakers include former premier of Saskatchewan Brad Wall, farmer and motivational speaker Katie Dilse, and former host, TSN’s Off the Record and mental health advocate Michael Landsberg.


CropSphere is hosted by the Saskatchewan Pulse Growers, the Saskatchewan Canola Development Commission (SaskCanola), the Saskatchewan Oat Development Commission (SaskOats), the Saskatchewan Flax Development Commission (SaskFlax), the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat), and the Saskatchewan Barley Development Commission (SaskBarley). These six groups have partnered to bring growers a first-class event.
