What Will the Weather Be Like this Spring in Western Canada – Drew Lerner

The year of 2010 was a year to forget for many farmers in Western Canada who had to deal with the  intense wet weather.   I talked to a farmer tonight who got a fraction of his acres even seeded and actually only had nine seeding days to get some crop planted.

Drew Lerner, World Wide Weather has been so right about the weather forecast in the past twelve months it is scary.  Many farmers are looking to Drew again this year for his analysis of what could happen in 2011.  At CropWeek I had a chance to meet Drew and talk to him about a weather forecast for 2011.  Drew and I discuss his analysis of the potential spring, summer and fall that farmers in Western Canada will succeed.
