"Global Warming" hits Canadian Farmers, Sask. harvest will be down this year, StatsCan.


"Global Warming" hits Canadian Farmers, Sask. harvest will be down this year, StatsCan. (CBC).
According to Statistics Canada, wheat production is expected to fall 27 per cent while canola is expected to be off 23 per cent from 2013 levels.

The reason? Because fewer acres were seeded, and because the rainy weather that flooded millions of acres put the crops up to two weeks behind normal development in certain areas.


More warm weather is needed, says the provincial Agriculture Ministry. Instead, cooler weather is on the way.
