Harvest Progress Slowed by Rain

- Dusk Harvest

Rain across Alberta, particularly in the north east, north west and Peace areas, slowed harvest progress, the weekly crop report from Alberta Agriculture and Forestry on Sept. 11, says.

As of Sept. 8, about 18 per cent of major crops in the province are in the bin. This up from eight per cent the previous week, the report notes.

There have been two frosts so far this year, having happened on Aug. 31 and Sept. 8. However, it is still early to determine if there was any crop damage from them.
