Agriculture, Food and Rural Revitalization
The agriculture industry in Saskatchewan
is a vital part of the provincial economy. This government Web site includes
information and statistics on every facet of the province's agriculture
industry including crops, livestock, organics, and processing.
The major natural resources of
Saskatchewan (Agriculture, Environment, Fisheries, Forestry, Mining, and
Tourism) are the focus of this site. The "Crops" sub-section of the Agriculture
section of this Web site provides information on the crop industry and
the alternative crops being tried in Saskatchewan as farmers diversify
and change the province's traditional agricultural production.

Provide students with the
following tips for making a good visual display, poster, or collage:
- Complete your research first. Read the information and make
point form notes on what you want to include.
- Think about what images you will use to represent some of the
information you've read about.
- Create a "thumbnail" (miniature) sketch that shows where you
will place text and images in your product.
- Try more than one design to determine how everything looks together.
- Choose a final layout and make a full-size sketch of it. Stand
back and look at it critically to see how it will look for your
viewer. Do the text and photos/illustrations work well together?
Can it be seen clearly from a distance?
