January 19, 2022 (Regina, SK) – The Agricultural Producers Association of Saskatchewan (APAS) has released a list of 26 resolutions that were approved by voting members of APAS at the 2022 General Meeting.

            APAS regularly holds District meetings and Policy Committee meetings throughout Saskatchewan where APAS Representatives gather to discuss issues affecting the agricultural industry and local communities. These issues are often turned into resolutions that are later discussed and voted upon by Representatives at the APAS General Meeting.

Some of the resolutions to come out of the meeting include calling on the provincial government to reject the Saskatchewan Growth Coalition’s proposed Effective Mill Rate Ratio of 0.75 – 2.0, express disappointment with both the provincial and federal governments regarding the decision to not allow zero-tillage offset protocols for prairie producers and advocate further for the recognition of producer achievements in sequestering carbon through farming practices, as well as ensuring the “What If” crop insurance scenarios and predicted prices be made available by the middle of December for the 2023 and future crop years.

“These resolutions give APAS a good sense of direction for the year ahead,” Newly elected APAS President Ian Boxall said. “This ensures producers will have their voices heard as we lobby various levels of government to ensure these resolutions are acted upon.
