Canadian Update

My old chum Brad Eggum in Saskatchewan tells me that things might be looking up a little. "After yet another 1" soaking yesterday, our weather services agree we may be set for our big break. Not a cloud in the sky for a two week stretch they say, with some warm temps to start us off," he says.

That may help get a large chunk of the outstanding harvest in, but serious damage to quality has already been done. "bombarded by several weeks of moisture while ripe, the frost will have ruined much of the late seeded crop which would have come through the rain unharmed" he sighs.

It's a good job that the US has plenty of quality wheat it would seem.
