Harvest Concluding For Canadian Foodgrains Bank

Harvest is coming to a close for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.

Regional Rep Gordon Janzen says they had just under 40 grow projects this year.

"There was a real variation in yield across the province and I think we've seen that across the agriculture sector," he commented. "Depending on rainfall, which was very spotty throughout the growing season, the yields varied a lot. There were some projects, that they had good yields, close to average and maybe even better but many more of them were below average and some had a poor yield."

Janzen says higher prices for many of the crops will help to offset the lower yields.

Crops grown this year included wheat, canola, soybeans, corn and sunflowers.
