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.
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.
