Farmers on the prairies and in Ontario are worried about the impact of weather for vastly different reasons.
In Alberta and Saskatchewan, relentless rainstorms mean an increased risk of rot and disease in what could otherwise be a bumper year for farmers. The situation is particularly bad for southeast Saskatchewan.
Ontario farmers have the opposite problem, not enough moisture. Environment Canada says 2016 is one of the driest, if not the driest year on record for Ontario. As a result of the unusually dry conditions, some crops could produce smaller yields and many farmers will face higher costs.
