The facility, according to Vice President of Crop Inputs Canada for P&H Justin Watson, cost over of $5 million.
For the Premier, it’s difficult to quantify the value that this P&H facility will add to the agricultural sector. But, the value of general investments, like this one across Saskatchewan, are very large.
“What our agricultural production has done here in Saskatchewan. And when you see now the opportunities of attracting investment like this are bringing, and specifically from a company such as P&H, to start to add value to this products that we are producing.”
Moe also spoke on production, noting products grown in rural Saskatchewan are exported around the world. It’s the value from those products that comes back into Saskatchewan’s urban centres, providing careers.
“This is how we have had that synergistic relationship in the years gone by and this how we’re going to expand it in the future.”
