APAS calls for repayment flexibility for drought-ravaged farmers

Saskatchewan’s general farm group is calling on agribusinesses to offer financial flexibility to producers during this year’s drought.

APAS President Todd Lewis, says some farmers need repayment flexibility with suppliers because of drought.

He adds farmers are also worried about forward supply contracts with grain companies and their ability to buy out those contracts.

He says some producers may want to consult a lawyer.

Lewis encourages farmers and suppliers to keep the lines of communication open during stressful times.
