Farm Credit Canada has released a report seeing strong growth for Saskatchewan’s farm sector and the optimism is based on high world demand.
FCC agriculture economist Craig Klemmer says Canada is the fifth largest agri-food exporter in the world, but he says demand could push Canada to number three because of high demand.
He says Saskatchewan has what the world wants in food products:
“Saskatchewan is very well positioned to take advantage of these opportunities,” Klemmer said. “And looking to continue to invest and contribute to increasing that export position going forward.”
Canadian agri-food exports reached almost 25 billion dollars last year.
