Are you interested in developing your business in Canada? Agri-Tech East is excited to announce a trans-Atlantic partnership with the province of Saskatchewan, Canada’s leading agricultural exporter.
You are warmly invited to apply for the prestigious global ‘Harvest’ accelerator programme, hosted by the Saskatoon Regional Economic Development Association (SREDA). Winners will be awarded US$2,000 to join a mission to Saskatoon (15-18 July), which will include:
- Participation in high-profile “Innovation in Agriculture” Reception on Monday 15 July 15 at 5:00pm, meeting representatives from the Saskatchewan Agriculture Cluster – comprising large agri-businesses, machinery companies, research organisations and University Agriculture Departments as well as Government policy-makers
- Attendance at Ag In Motion, Canada’s largest outdoor agricultural trade show (including presence and profiling of your company on the SREDA booth)
- Participation in a bespoke programme of one-to-one meetings with members of the cluster, prepared in advance and in consultation with you to maximise the opportunities of your time in Saskatchewan
Sakatchewan is Canada’s top grain producing region, with over 40% of Canada’s arable farmland. The agricultural industry added $4.2 billion in provincial GDP in 2016 with a majority in crop production ($3.5B) and animal production ($345M).
In 2018, the Canadian Agricultural Partnership was announced; a five-year, $388 million investment by federal and provincial governments in strategic initiatives for Saskatchewan agriculture. This includes a commitment to enhancing the competitiveness of the sector through research, science and innovation, and adoption of innovative products and practices, with an emphasis on the environment and clean growth.
How to apply for the Harvest accelerator programme
There is also an opportunity for short-listed finalists to be invited to join the mission at their own cost (for flights and accommodation) and still benefit from the profiling opportunities, attendance at Ag In Motion and the Reception and participate in a bespoke meeting programme.

Deadline for UK applications is noon Friday 26th April.
