Harvest of Spring Seeded Crops Underway

- Harvest

Favourable weather conditions, particularly in the south and central are, have allowed most Alberta producers to start harvesting spring seeded crops, the bi-weekly crop report from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry on Aug. 28, says.

Provincially, eight per cent of the crop has been harvested to date. Southern Alberta is the farthest advanced with 24 per cent of the crop in the bin.

Variable weather conditions experienced during the last few weeks in the northern regions of the province has resulted in less than two per cent of crops combined in each area, the report notes.
