The rains we are seeing today may not be coming at the most opportune time, but producers around the southeast have still made out okay.
"The harvest has actually been better than we thought," Malcolm Herman, a local producer from the Lampman area. "It's yielding better than we thought."
"It was pretty dry, the last rain we got this year was on June 10th and we could have used the rain first week of August."
He added that the wheat is all graded at number one and comes in around 68 lbs. Canola is also faring well for the amount of rain that fell in the area.
"We're lucky we got the rain when we got it."
And while rain is usually a good thing, what is falling right now may be a little too late.
"If there's any wheat standing now it could get downgraded. It won't hurt the canola but the rain that's coming now when it's a slow misty rain it could hurt the wheat, downgrade it and make it lose weight."
"Even in the swath, it could bleach it out."
He also mentioned that getting later in the year, it could get to the point where it's not worth taking the crop off.
"I can remember in 1959, it was the 10th of October when we got snow. Some crops stayed out that year but then we had no aeration, no fans to dry the grain. But every other year the crop got off. In '07, on the 4th of December, we were combining dry."
