Alberta Crop Yields Above Averages

Final estimates of Alberta dryland crop yields are above the five-year averages for all regions and for the province, the Oct. 4 provincial crop report said. The provincial dryland five and 10-year yield indices indicate provincial yields are 10 per cent above the five-year averages and almost six per cent above the 10-year averages.

Quality for hard red spring wheat, canola and dry peas is above their five-year averages, while for durum wheat and oats, quality is lower, the report said. Quality for malt and feed barley is on par with the five-year average.

Favourable weather over the past week pushed harvest progress by nine per cent for major crops from a week ago. Provincially, about 96 per cent of all crops have been harvested, which on par with the last year’s progress. The report noted it is 26 per cent ahead of the five-year average and 20 per cent ahead of the 10-year average.
