Poll: Are you ahead or behind on putting the crop in?

Perhaps the only area of Canada really rolling full steam ahead on seeding or planting is southern Alberta, and that’s not because conditions are great — it’s just extremely dry.

In Ontario, a slow start to the spring warm up and some wetter conditions have kept farmers from really getting going until just this weekend with a good stretch of warm, dry weather.

Then, there’s Manitoba: where the southern areas, i.e. the entire Red River Valley, is still a flooded mess.

Which brings us to this week’s poll. In comparison to your own farm’s 5-year average, would you say you’re ahead, behind, or about average on getting the crop in as of this week?
