Since 1983, the Wheatland Conservation Area (WCA) has been researching “Practical Solutions for Today’s Agricultural Questions”. Producer feedback and paying close attention to current issues facing agriculture is where we get our research direction.

WCA manages the southwest Agricultural Applied Research Management (Agri-ARM) site in the dry brown soils zone near Swift Current, Saskatchewan. WCA has collaborated with Federal, Provincial, and Municipal Government as well as many Commodity Groups, Industries, and Universities. Research projects range from Soil Salinity Remediation, Combine Header trials, and Seed Opener / Rotation trials to Regional Variety trials, Minor Use Registration studies, and a wide range of agronomic trials involving pulse, oilseed, forage and cereal crops.
