Heat wave could give southern Alberta farmers early harvest

July 27, 2020

Environment Canada has issued a heat warning for southern Alberta. Temperatures 29 degrees and above are expected for the week. David Bishop, Chairman of Alberta Barley says that the hot weather, combined with rainfall this month means farmers could be harvesting early.

"We're actually looking like we're going to produce an average or above average crop this year. We haven't had that in a few years so everybody is looking forward to this years harvest and actually see what we do get".
