So interesting. Here in S. Alberta we've not had any significant winter kill in my area in several years. Certainly not 100%! Too much snow? Not enough snow? Dry soil all winter long?

Seems like most winter kill in this area is not actually from the winter, but from drowning in the spring when the snow melts. One winter with very little snow fall I think we had some freeze off. If the soil gets below -5C, winter wheat will die. Here in Alberta our average soil temps rarely get below that, despite much colder air temperatures.

Winter kill is a loose term maybe, fall 2016 it got flooded out by the 9in of rain we had between seeding and freeze up. Last fall we had picture perfect stands going into winter with nice 2ft tall stubble and we were all excited, but what little snow we got melted during a mid-January hot/rainy spell and the crop sat exposed for a month in the heart of winter. Not that many years ago winter wheat was our most profitable crop for 3yrs in a row, been way too good of a crop for us to give up on it completely yet.

"Though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vine. Though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren. Though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns lie empty. Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in the God of my salvation." Habakkuk 3:17-18

Now a good year for me this year. As wet as ever to start then just shut off at end of June.
I suspect that is the wrong letter?
Really changes the meaning.

NE Alberta. Raining and snowing for the last week. Very little combined around here and nothing dry. I think i'd rather combine a poorer dry crop right now then look at a very good crop sitting under snow. In September!! This will be 3rd crappy harvest in a row. 2 years ago finished combining 15 canola November 18th. Almost 3" of rain since last Saturday. Calling for rain and snow all day today and no temps above 10C for all next week. Might be October before we get back in fields.
