Record crop production, yields projected
Canadian farmers anticipate higher production for most field crops this year compared with 2012, thanks to record or near-record yields for canola, wheat, barley and oats, Statistics Canada said in its latest crop production estimate released Friday. Despite late seeding this spring, weather conditions that prevailed up to the end of summer have led to higher than normal yields, the federal agency said, However, frost or disease may have reduced some crop yields, the report said.
