Hail claims on the Prairies are tracking similar to last year with Saskatchewan farmers reporting the most damage so far.
However, there are still six weeks or so that could result in hail storms, leading Canadian Crop Hail Association president Rick Omelchenko to speculate that final numbers could be higher.
More than 10,000 claims have been made so far and about 7,000 of them have come from Saskatchewan. Last year, about 11,000 claims were filed.
Omelchenko said hail activity in Saskatchewan is up over the five-year average. The same is true in Alberta, while Manitoba claims are down.
