Western Canadian Crop Production Show – January 7-10, 2013

Nov. 26, 2012, Saskatoon, SK - The Western Canadian Crop Production Show is an important event for cereal, pulse and oilseed producers in Western Canada. The show provides crop producers the opportunity to meet with exhibitors and get information on crop production, farm business management and crop marketing. This year's exhibitors come from a wide variety of areas, including technology, products and services for crop producers.

The 2013 show will be held from January 7 to 10 at Saskatoon's Prairieland Park.

The 2013 show will feature a return of the Spraying Innovations – Crop Protection Technology Clinic. This clinic includes in-depth sessions on sprayer calibration and nozzle selection, as well as manufacturer specific application and precision steering information and advice.

The Crop Production Show provides an opportunity for the Ministry of Agriculture to interact with producers and launch new publications and guides for the upcoming cropping season. Watch for the new Crop Planning Guides and Guide to Crop Protection. The Ministry booth, located in Hall B, also provides the latest forecasts for crop insects, as well as survey information on crop diseases and moisture conditions.

New this year is the 2012 Saskatchewan Farm Machinery Custom and Rental Rate Guide Calculator. This is a spreadsheet that producers can use to fine-tune their calculations on custom and rental machinery rates. Be sure to stop by the Ministry booth to look at the capabilities of this calculator.

The Western Canadian Crop Production Show and Crop Production Week have a common website that includes detailed information, including meeting agendas - www.cropweek.com.
