A new report says Saskatchewan grain farmers need improved grain contracts.
Last year’s drought forced many farmers to buy out their contracts, costing some producers hundreds of thousands of dollars and prompted a study by Mercantile consulting for APAS and Sask crop groups.
APAS president Ian Boxall says the report found only 46 percent of farmers feel they are treated fairly by contracts.
Boxall says the report suggests more clearly defined contract terms and conditions.
Boxall says crop groups and APAS want to hold discussions with grain companies and other stakeholders to improve grain contracts.
