Canada’s agricultural sector bucked the general economic decline caused by the coronavirus during the first half of the year due to strong cannabis sales, according to Statistics Canada figures outlined by Moose Jaw Today.

Farm cash receipts totaled $16.7 billion – an increase of 5.2 percent – but were driven by $685 million in cannabis, a 62 percent increase. If not for cannabis sales. Farm cash receipts would have increased just .8 percent, the report says.
