Farm trade expected to be one of main agricultural issues raised during fall legislative session in Sask.

Farm trade is expected to be among the key agricultural issues raised during the fall session of the Saskatchewan legislature, which opened Wednesday in Regina.

Agriculture minister David Marit says the late harvest and farm trade are likely to be among the items raised during the fall sitting of the legislature.

He says there are concerns around canola and pork exports to China, pulse crops to India, and durum to Italy.

But he says there are opportunities for improved farm trade, pointing to a recent trade mission to Japan by Premier Moe and Marit’s trade mission to Mexico.

Marit says farmers have faced a tough fall because of rain and snow at harvest.

He is hoping the federal government will provide some relief for farmers facing high carbon tax fees on fuel used for grain drying.
