AAFC needs your help to generate better agroclimate data, help producers make more informed decisions

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) is currently looking for individuals who are interested in weather and climate to report on their agroclimate conditions. All it takes is 2-5 minutes of your time to fill out a quick survey based on the impacts weather and climate are having on agriculture in your area. The information in these maps enables producers and scientists at AAFC to better understand the local and regional effects of agroclimate conditions and identify emerging risks to the broader agricultural sector. These surveys are also used to inform various levels of government about what is happening on-the-ground in agricultural operations across the country. AAFC is asking you to please fill out the June survey available from the link below:

Standing strong: Maximizing yield potential by optimizing stem strength and biomass partitioning

By accelerating the genetic gains of AAFC and U of S breeding programs, this research will contribute to the goal of establishing Saskatchewan and the Canadian prairies as leaders in cereal crop R&D to ultimately provide producers with greater farm income as varietal productivity per acre increases.
