Winter weather determines crop yields in the Peace

A crop insurance rep with the provincial Agriculture and Lands Ministry says the North Peace has likely fared better than the South Peace this summer.

But, Simon North says the next couple of weeks will determine how many insurance claims are filed by local farmers.

And while it’s still too early to tell what the overall crop yield will be, North says, despite the recent turn for the worse, weather conditions this year were better in the North Peace than south of the river.

He does say forage yields are slightly down from last year’s numbers.

North also says if winter conditions continue, there will likely be more claims than last year.
