Fairview producer and Alberta Canola Director Dan Doll said harvest in his area has gone very well.
“Incredible weather I would say. Probably, two-thirds to three-quarters done. There is a little bit of canola left but most of the cereals are done.”
“Yields are, I would say, average or slightly above average. Things are looking pretty good.”
Doll said he has never seen harvest weather like this.
He adds there was some worry earlier in the growing season.
“We were worried in July that the crop would be late but the drought in July speeded things up. I think it’s going to be good overall, people are pretty happy.”
“Less fuel and no grain drying. Dry grain is a cheap grain to harvest.”
Doll is hoping the better quality leads to better prices.Click here to see more...
