Humboldt based Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute(PAMI) hosted meetings last week with representatives from SaskCanola.

The sessions were coinciding with a 25 year celebration of the agriculture stakeholders partnership in researching canola.

Sask Canola Executive Director Janice Tranberg says they have covered many areas over the years.

"Some of that research is in genomics, and breeding, and some of it is in utilization and agronomy. Certainly projects like straight cutting and how do we properly store the seed? All of those things are very important and those are the kinds of research projects that we've worked and continue to work with PAMI on."

PAMI CEO Dave Gulacher echoed the thoughts of Tranberg saying they have had a remarkable relationship that's covered his entire career at the facility.

"Discuss concepts on a project basis with SaskCanola and then look for funding to carry those out. We've done projects from seeding, pest control, harvest and storage, so all the production and storage functions associated with growing canola."

According to a Canola Council of Canada report the crop is worth $12.2 billion every year in Saskatchewan.
