Regional Producers Take Every Opportunity to Complete Harvest

Lack of weather cooperation this month has equated to an ‘On Again, Off Again’ relationship between regional producers and harvest this year ...

The latest Alberta Agriculture Crop Report is out and Harvest Progress here in the Northeast Region was up to 75 per cent complete as of October 17th, up from 63 per cent from the week prior but trailing the provincial average of 86.6 per cent complete.

Yield Index in the Northeast was near unchanged as a yield increase in spring wheat was offset by reductions to canola and field peas.

According to the report, regional producers are no-doubt very mindful of what occurred last year and have taken every opportunity to get crops off the field this month.
