Issue No. 36 - Summer 2002

A hot, humid day greeted the crowd that gathered for Seeding Trends 2002 at the historic Seager Wheeler farm east of Rosthern. The event attracted approximately 650 people to the eighth annual field day that took place June 5th. 

The large crowd came from all four corners of the province, and the high attendance rate showed there is significant interest in the adoption of direct seeding techniques. The day began with the arrival of the Honourable Clay Serby, Deputy Premier and Minister of Saskatchewan Agriculture, Food and Rural Revitalization (SAFRR). After touring the orchard, Mr. Serby made the announcement that the Seager Wheeler farm had been designated an Agri-Arm site.
