The federal government is providing 670 thousand dollars to enable Saskatchewan farm machinery manufacturers to showcase their equipment in Germany this fall.

Agritechnica is the world's largest bi-annual trade fair for farm implements.

Cory Beaujot, marketing manager for Seedmaster Manufacturing in Emerald Park, says the federal support will help expand markets for his company.

Regina-Lumsden Conservative MP Tom Lukiwski says the federal funding pays big dividends with Canadian sales surpassing 125 million dollars after last years show in Germany.

Lukiwski made the announcement at the Seedmaster plant east of Regina.

Chad Fleck, C.E.O. of Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership, says the funding will help over two dozen exhibitors display their machinery in Hannover.

Agritechnica is in Hannover, Germany and attracts over 450 thousand visitors from 88 countries.
