Alberta Government Announces New Grain Dryer Program

Details of a new grain dryer program for farmers were announced in a joint news release by the federal government and the Alberta Government on Monday.
 
The release said the new grant program is available to help grain farmers upgrade their grain handling systems.
 
Applicants will be able to choose equipment that makes sense for the size and volume of their agri-business and improve energy efficiency within their operations.
 
Eligible expenses will be cost-shared with 50 per cent funding from the grant and 50 per cent funding from the applicant. Based on the final crop report issued by the province in early December, close to 10 per cent of crops across Alberta were left in the fields and will be harvested sometime this spring.
 
In the Peace Region, more than 30 per cent of crops were left to be harvested this spring.
