Humboldt to gain agriculture extension office


The Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture says it will move one of its agriculture extension services to the City of Humboldt. Those who work in the Watrous office will be have to make the hour drive north as of March 2020.

“Establishing an office in Humboldt allows us to maximize the positive impact of our extension services on the agriculture community,” says Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister, David Marit. “We will continue to serve our clients in the Watrous region from our Humboldt office, while expanding specialists’ reach by being co-located with Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation (SCIC) in a larger centre.”

The ag extension office will be located by the existing Humboldt Saskatchewan Crop Insurance Corporation location, moving two services under one for producers.

“The City of Humboldt is a strong agricultural hub in Saskatchewan and the agri-environmental programming and extension services offered by regional specialists will serve the area well,” Marit says.

Currently, there are 10 regional offices located across the province, staffed with agriculture extension specialists.
