In a significant move to advance agricultural technology, the Canadian and Saskatchewan governments have announced a joint investment of $5 million into the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute (PAMI). This initiative, part of the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership (Sustainable CAP), spans over five years and aims to fund PAMI’s project development, knowledge dissemination, and training programs

PAMI is renowned for providing engineering solutions tailored to the agricultural industry, collaborating with major manufacturers, producers, and the industry at large. Their contributions are pivotal in driving forward research that strengthens Saskatchewan’s robust agricultural sector and its reach across the globe.

 “The Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute has a proud history of helping farmers adopt new technologies and practices. This funding will help them continue their great work, and ensure farmers remain on the cutting edge, so they can keep producing top-quality food for Canadians and folks around the world.

The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food

“PAMI provides a key service to the agricultural sector, as well as the transportation and mining sectors. Thanks to the work of organizations like PAMI, Saskatchewan is recognized internationally not only as a source of safe, reliable and sustainably produced food, but also for some of the best tools in the world to grow it.”

David Marit, Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister

“This increased funding will allow PAMI to keep doing what it does best, support the innovation and excellence of agriculture in Saskatchewan and beyond. We are proud the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan have recognized the value of the work we do, and are grateful for this increased and extended funding, which helps ensure PAMI’s continued success.”

Paul Buczkowski, President and CEO, Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute
