by | Sep 24, 2021 | Crop Production, Weather

Cool, wet weather held back harvest progress across Alberta this week, the Sept. 21 provincial crop report says. There is now 78 per cent of the provincial crop in the bin, which is 31 points ahead of last year’s progress and 37 points ahead of the five-year average.

The report notes expected dryland yields in the province are significantly below normal at 63 per cent of the 10-year index. Regionally, the ratings vary depending on the growing season precipitation received in the area.

With over three quarters of the crop now harvested, grades for the major crops are close to the five-year averages, the report says.
