Early snow and lodging are the latest roadblocks facing prairie producers as they fight with a late harvest
An early blast of winter that dumped variable amounts of freezing rain and snow across most of Alberta, Saskatchewan and parts of Manitoba last weekend has created another headache for prairie grain growers.
“Harvest will certainly be delayed further,” said Shannon Friesen, provincial crops specialist with Saskatchewan Agriculture.
“Our biggest issue now is likely going to be lodging, simply because we had such a heavy, wet snow.”
