Harvest Continues Across the Province
The 2017 harvest continues to move forward across the province with the assistance of mild and dry weather. To date the Southwest leads the process with 86 percent of the crop now combines compared to 35 percent in the Northwest region. With the dry field conditions, many producers have indicated that winter cereals may not be seeded this fall. Lack of moisture continues to cause crop damage, while strong winds have blown swaths around and shelled-out standing crops. There are many reports of combine and grass fires due to the extremely dry conditions. Some areas in the north reported frost and producers are assessing damage.
