To promote the development of winter cereals as viable crop choices for western Canadian farmers. Winter Cereals Canada Inc. is involved in promotion of the three major winter cereal crops.
Dedicated to the promotion of winter cereals production in Western Canada
Initially founded in 1995 as the Saskatchewan Winter Cereal Growers Inc. to promote the production of winter wheat in Saskatchewan, Winter Cereals Canada, Inc. has grown to become a significant voice for Western Canadian winter wheat, fall rye and winter triticale growers. From the beginning Winter Cereals Canada, Inc. has represented grower’s interests with government, university and private organizations.
Winter Cereals Canada, Inc. was the driving force behind the creation of the Saskatchewan Winter Cereals Development Commission and Winter Cereals Manitoba, Inc. Both organizations are now the official representative bodies for winter cereals growers in Saskatchewan and Manitoba and are heavily involved in funding research and marketing initiatives.
As a result of the formation of the two provincial bodies Winter Cereals Canada, Inc. has moved from direct involvement with various winter cereals issues to a management and oversight position. Winter Cereals Canada, Inc. manages the day to day operation of both provincial organizations and provides a unified voice when dealing with our research and marketing partners.
As a result of the level of co-operation between the Saskatchewan and Manitoba organizations all members of the provincial bodies are automatically members of Winter Cereals Canada, Inc. Winter Cereals Canada, Inc. therefore can speak as the voice of over 7,000 winter cereals growers in Western Canada.
Three times a year we publish the Winter Cereals Grower newsletter which is sent to all members. Each issue contains the latest news on research and market developments of interest to our members. Current news updates are added as they occur on this websites “News” section.
