Heavy rain halting Alberta crop production
Sep, 20 2006 - 6:40 AM
- Rain has halted field operations in many areas of Alberta.
Provincially, it is estimated that 83 per cent of the crop is in the bin, compared to an average progress of about 50 per cent at this time in most years.
In addition, 11 per cent of the crop is in the swath and six per cent remains standing.
Most producers will likely need seven to ten days of good weather to wrap up harvest this year.
