Source: Western Producer Crop Tours, August 2, 2019
The western Saskatchewan leg of FarmLink’s 2019 crop tour demonstrated how erratic and unpredictable this year has been for the province’s farmers.
This part of the tour saw fields ranging from hail-damaged and low-yielding to fields yielding well above average.
The randomness was illustrated at the first two stops of the tour about 30 kilometres south of where it started in Kindersley. One green pea field near Glidden was destroyed by hail and was projected to yield only in the low 20s. Less than two km away, another pea field was completely untouched by hail and projected to yield 10 bushels per acre more its neighbour.
