Early snow and frost stalled harvest in Canada, reports said on October 9, 2019. From 10 to 100 cm (4 - 39 inches) of snow affected parts of the country, particularly several regions of Alberta.
In the south, about 60% of the canola crop had been harvested, but less than 16% had been combined. Wheat harvesting was only 35% done.
Snow has already put several fields across the prairies at risk, threatening even the areas that are not yet hit by frost.
While the snow is not expected to last, it can make crops flat, making them difficult to harvest. Furthermore, the snow would leave a wet and muddy field, bogging down equipment. Damp grains, as a result, becomes lesser in value and costs more to dry.
Calgary was one of the places hit by another severe snowstorm which resulted in traffic. Snow is expected to hit Manitoba in the next days.
