APAS president Todd Lewis describes 2018 as an interesting growing year for Saskatchewan farmers.
Lewis says farmers faced several weather extremes this year.
He says it was dry for spring seeding yet harvest was delayed by rainfall.
Overall, he says there was about an average crop.
Lewis is hoping wheat prices have bottomed out and will move upward in 2019.
But he says trade disputes around the world remain a concern.
He says a federal carbon tax and a proposal to raise royalties on seed are key issues in 2019.
APAS has intervenor status in the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal hearing on the carbon tax February 13th and 14th.
