Prairie farmers are looking for some good weather as they work to bring in the harvest.
Recent rainfall not only delayed the harvest, but also is expected to mean some downgrading in the crop.
Bruce Burnett is CWB's Weather and Crop Specialist, CWB becoming G3 Canada. He says, “Overall quality of this years crop has been more or less average with the southern and initial part of the harvest in the central areas being mostly high grade.”
He adds that the impact of the recent rains in parts of Saskatchewan and Alberta will probably mean Spring Wheat will grade about 3 or feed, while Durum will likely run 3,4, and 5.
