Alberta . . . crop season in review

Description

Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development (ARD) has delivered the Alberta Crop Reporting Program to clients since 1940. The objective of the crop report is to capture timely information relating to crop production in Alberta during the current crop season. This is achieved through the use of surveys which collect data on moisture and crop conditions, progress of seeding and harvesting, insect and disease situation, yield potential and crop quality, etc. Data collected through the surveys, along with information from other sources will be used to compile the bi weekly (year) crop report, which presents provincial and regional summaries. The crop report is used by industry and other stakeholders for various purposes, including drought monitoring and forecasting of production insurance payments. It is also used to validate some of the Alberta crop estimates generated by Statistics Canada. This report presents a review of the crop season and an analysis of crop production statistics for the current year. In addition, a precipitation map for this year crop season is attached for reference.
