Canada - Potatoes left in field following poor autumn harvest conditions

Potato growers suffered major losses, and a lot of onions and carrots were never pulled from the ground this fall.

And some farmers are still out combining their corn and sunflowers over snow-covered fields.

But, by and large, cereal crops and most vegetables fared well despite a near-drought summer followed by a cold, wet fall.

The hardest hit were potato growers who couldn’t harvest eight per cent of their crop.
