Program deadline extended
Producers in the Southwest have been granted an extension to complete projects approved though the 2008 Saskatchewan Farm and Ranch Water Infrastructure Program (FRWIP).
The deadline to complete projects in the program has been extended by a full year, with applicants now having until Nov. 1, 2010 to finish their approved projects. Applicants had been facing a Nov. 1, 2009 deadline, with program officials estimating one-third of approved projects have not yet been completed.
Cypress Hills Grasslands MP David Anderson and Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister Bob Bjornerud announced the deadline extension in Swift Current on Monday.
