Farmers from across the province are heading to Saskatoon this week for the Sask Crops meetings.

Producers taking part in the meetings at Prairieland Park can also take in the Western Canadian Crop Production Show presented by Farm Credit Canada.

Prairieland's Agriculture Manager, Leigh Ann Hurlburt says this year marks the show's 40th anniversary, with ten exhibitors being recognized for their dedication.

The Western Canadian Crop Production Show officially opens at 12 pm today. 

"We have more than 330 exhibitors here and over 960 exhibit spaces filled in five buildings. So there is a lot to see, and you pretty much can't do it in one day. That's why the 2-day passes are very, very popular."

Hurlburt says this year's show runs Monday to Thursday and features a wide variety of ag-related information and products.

"We have everything from harvest and forage equipment to irrigation and grain marketing. Shortline equipment is always a big, big thing. We have lots of combines and tractors and all the latest equipment."

The Nufarm Information Theatre is always a popular place during the show with topics ranging from farm succession to right to repair, the importance of honey bees and more.

She says another key presentation is set for Wednesday with Dr Keith Willoughby from the University of Saskatchewan. 

"He is speaking on "The Year the World Ran Out of Everything: Wherefore Art Thou, Supply Chain Management?"

Producers can visit the crop production show website to see a full list of exhibitors and speakers.

The Western Canadian Crop Production Show runs Monday from 12 pm to 6 pm, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 am to 5 pm, and Thursday from 9 am to 4 pm.

Daily Admission is $20/person or a two-day pass is $32/person, children 12 and under are admitted free.
