Drought in the Province

Drought is when below-average precipitation affects the quantity of moisture in the soil and the volume of water in streams, rivers, lakes and groundwater. Drought can be further defined based on its impacts.

Agricultural drought is when there is reduced water availability and water quality necessary for the productivity of farms, ranches and grazing lands, and results in negative direct and indirect economic impacts on the agricultural sector. The resources and programs listed on this page are to support Saskatchewan’s agriculture sector when faced with drought conditions.
