Government’s Growing Forward 2 agricultural policy praised, panned

The federal and provincial governments say the new Growing Forward 2 agricultural policy framework, which was officially launched this week, will invest $388 million in Saskatchewan over five years, an increase of more than $25 million a year over the previous Growing Forward framework. “Growing Forward 2 provides flexible, innovative programming for Saskatchewan’s hard-working farmers to ensure they have the tools they need to remain competitive and expand into new markets,” federal Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz said in a press release issued late this week. via Leader-Post – Business http://www.leaderpost.com/news/regina/Government+Growing+Forward+agricultural+policy+praised+panned/8236184/story.html
