Perhaps the only area of Canada really rolling full steam ahead on seeding or planting is southern Alberta, and that’s not because conditions are great — it’s just extremely dry.
In Ontario, a slow start to the spring warm up and some wetter conditions have kept farmers from really getting going until just this weekend with a good stretch of warm, dry weather.
Then, there’s Manitoba: where the southern areas, i.e. the entire Red River Valley, is still a flooded mess.
Which brings us to this week’s poll. In comparison to your own farm’s 5-year average, would you say you’re ahead, behind, or about average on getting the crop in as of this week?
