This is the worst fall I can remember since 1986.

With Saskatchewan at about 70% complete, of harvest is over I would think that has to be a record for amount of crop left out?? I still think late October and November will be above average temps. Or atleast hope.

How many acres do you guys still have to go? Where we farm we never get the rains you guys do, but we always get what crop we have off. I can imagine that nothing would be worse than growing a great crop only to not be able to harvest it. Despite the fact that in our 6" rainfall zone here we often look with envy at you guys, there are significant challenges no matter where you farm I guess.

I don't know about all of Western Canada but in 2009 we got rained out Sept 29 with a 1000 acres left and never turned a wheel again till Nov 9 and we finished Nov 17. So i'm hoping we get the same weather this year.

in our area that year, a lot of guys were fighting in oct to get done, in mud and snow and drying grain. the guys that left it for spring, harvested most of it dry in November...was a crazy year.

You get to chose.
