Hit the hardest, Alberta harvest finally wraps up

Since mid-October, warmer-than-average temperatures have allowed producers across Alberta to make significant harvest progress and 95 per cent of crops are now in the bin. Alberta’s harvest has been stalled the most, with only 40 per cent of crops harvested in early October while other Prairie provinces saw double the progress.

Manitoba’s sunflower and grain corn harvest stalled the most

Manitoba’s overall crop harvest progress is at 97 per cent complete with varied harvest progress across crops. Under 10 per cent of sunflower and grain corn crop was harvested at the start of October and both crops continue to see some delays, with only 61 per cent of corn grain harvested so far.

More Alberta farmers managing environmental risks online

Alberta producers can now complete an environmental farm plan online using the province’s newly updated online tool. Between January and June of 2018, 95 per cent of environmental farm plans were completed online, so the workbook has been redesigned to be more mobile and user friendly.
