About Us

Our Goals

Address current agronomic, economic, and environmental issues facing producers and land managers through research, demonstration, and extension.

Provide a communication link between agriculture research and agriculture producers to improve the transfer and adaptation of both new and existing technology to farmers and ranchers.

To improve the overall image of Agriculture in the public eye, as being an economic and environmentally sustainable practice, thus encouraging public investment in our industry and attracting young entrepreneurs to choose agriculture as a career.

Our mission

To facilitate applied research and demonstrate advanced technology to producers in the Brown Soil Zone of Southwest Saskatchewan and to advance the adoption of this technology into practice, thereby improving producer’s economic returns and long term sustainability of the operation and the environment.

Our History

Wheatland Conservation Area was established in 1983 by producers concerned about soil degradation, with a special emphasis on soil salinity. We take a pro-active approach to member concerns and have adjusted programs and mandates to include applied research and demonstration of advanced cropping systems. We currently operate one of eight Agri-ARM research sites in the province.
