The Forage Crop Variety Testing System has been revived in Saskatchewan in 2017. Saskatchewan Forage Seed Development Commission has provided funding toward the project. Other contributors include Saskatchewan Agriculture and forage seed companies. One of the 4 sites in the Province includes a seed yield plot. This site is located at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Farm at Melfort, SK. There will be numerous crops planted at the site including varieties of: sainfoin, cicer milkvetch, alfalfa, Timothy, tall fescue, Festulolium, crested wheatgrass, as well as smooth, hybrid and meadow bromegrass.
The site will be viewed during the annual forage crop field tour on July 27, 2017.
