APAS meeting to seek rebate on carbon tax on farm fuel for grain drying

More than 100 delegates are expected to attend the APAS annual meeting, which opens Wednesday in Regina.

President Todd Lewis says one key resolution will push Ottawa for an exemption on the carbon tax on fuel used for grain drying this fall.

He says costs are significant to farmers, running into the hundreds of dollars a month.

Lewis says other key resolutions will discuss water drainage, seed royalties and rail transportation.

The APAS annual meeting runs Wednesday through Friday in Regina.
