Help Improve Agricultural Extension Services

An initiative to review and modernize agricultural extension services provided by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture is underway.  

Extension services are designed to assist farmers and ranchers. These services include the business information, advice and support provided by specialists in regional offices around the province and at extension events, the toll-free Agriculture Knowledge Centre phone line, and a variety of print and electronic publications.

Evaluating extension services, along with service delivery is necessary to ensure that the Ministry is providing the right services using the best delivery options available.
