Prairie Farm 18

Prairie Farm 18

Description : The economy of Saskatchewan has always depended on primary products. The first one was fur, for which the Hudsonís Bay Company and the North West Company competed from 1774 to 1821. The development of agriculture in the province began with the coming of the railroads in the late 19th century. Agriculture, mainly wheat farming, rapidly expanded from about 1880 to 1930. The depression and drought of the 1930s brought the provinceís economy to a virtual standstill. However, an improvement in the yield and prices of grain during World War II (1939-1945) initiated an economic recovery in the province.
