The Ministry of Agriculture office is now open in Humboldt and is located in the same office as Saskatchewan Crop Insurance.

In announcing the move in December Agriculture Minister David Marit says they decided to relocate the Watrous office because it was being underutilized, averaging only seventy walk-ins a year for the last few years.

Staff at the new Humboldt Regional Services office include two administrative staff, along with a Crop Extension Specialist, Range Management Extension Specialist an Agri-Environmental Specialist.
