WHEREAS recent changes to the agricultural programs administered by SARM resulted in reductions in funding to key ag programs such as rat and beaver control, and the invasive plant control program;

WHEREAS these programs provided valuable resources to rural municipalities and loss of funding can impact the continued efforts of these RMs;

WHEREAS clubroot is of concern and is a crop specific pest;

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM lobby the provincial government to require clubroot initiatives to be funded from the canola check off through Sask Canola and restore funding to the previous ag programs as in 2017
