WINNIPEG (Reuters) — A snowy spring on the Prairies is raising jitters from the farm to the futures market about double delays in harvesting and seeding.
Many fields went unharvested last fall due to wet weather and farmers hoped to salvage those crops before planting the next this spring.
Alberta alone has as much as 1.5 million acres left to harvest, much of it canola and wheat, said government crop specialist Harry Brook.
ICE Canada canola futures have gained about 10 percent in the past three weeks.
