New initiative looks to shed light on “tense” topic

January 3, 2022  ByBree Rody


Farmers in Saskatchewan and the surrounding area are invited to come together – virtually – and understand more about how effective water management can be a key economic tool for farmers and ranchers.

AgH2Onward is a new initiative by the Water Security Agency (WSA) with support from Natural Resources Canada, which offers free workshops on the process and benefits of drainage approvals and techniques for farmers and landowners. Starting this week and proceeding on nearly 40 dates between now and March 23, landowners can register for the courses (which take place over two half-day sessions each).

According to AgH2Onward’s website, the agriculture industry faces unique challenges from climate change. “We believe there are important opportunities to respond to that challenge,” the site states. AgH2Onward Julie Mackenzie told the Prince Albert Daily Herald that drainage can be a “tense” topic, but more education and collaboration from key partners can show why drainage is good for not just farms, but also communities.

The five modules in AgH2Onward include
