Good harvest progress in Alberta
By Top Crop Manager
Sept. 3, 2015 - Alberta producers were able to make good harvest progress this past week with the south region showing the greatest advancement. Thick smoke haze in the atmosphere reduced temperatures and slowed drying across much of the province. High winds in southern Alberta helped to dry crops but also caused damage by blowing swaths and breaking heads.
According to the provincial crop report, harvest progress is estimated at 21 per cent combined/19 per cent swathed, approximately one week ahead of the longer term average.
