The Saskatchewan economy is being seriously damaged by a lack of farmers and farm workers according to a new study.
Debra Hauer is the labour market manager for the Canadian Agricultural Human Resources Council.
She says a two year study found farm labour shortages total four thousand jobs in Saskatchewan, costing the economy 240 million dollars a year.
And, she says it will get worse.
The study says a shortage of farm labour costs the Canadian economy a total of 1.5 billion dollars a year.
