Let’s talk Ag Water Management…
The agriculture industry is the backbone of our provincial economy. Being able to manage water effectively has made significant contributions to our province and can be an important economic tool for farmers and ranchers.
Are you looking to plan an agricultural drainage project that is adapted and resilient to weather extremes – such as floods and droughts – while increasing productivity? Where do you start?
AgH2Onward is a free online workshop (approximately 2.5 hours) AND will be hitting a town near you, in March, for in-person workshops.
AgH2Onward consists of five modules that will introduce you to:
- The Agricultural Water Management Strategy in Saskatchewan
- Effective agricultural water management tools and techniques
- The benefits of getting your drainage projects approved
- The impacts of agricultural drainage
- How incorporating mitigation strategies can help you adapt to a changing climate
- Considerations and regulatory requirements for drainage approvals
- Using a Qualified Person to assist you through the approval process
Please join us for this free online workshop and increase your knowledge about implementing adaptive agricultural water management practices in Saskatchewan.
There are many opportunities to attend. To Register, please click a date that best suits your availability. Please note: the number of registrants per course will be limited.
In-person workshops will take place this year as well – check back to see when and where! We can come to you! Email us if your C&D, Irrigation District or RM is interested!
We will be taking a short break from webinars for the season, but will resume online courses in July!
