Hail claims on the Prairies are tracking similar to last year with Saskatchewan farmers reporting the most damage so far. However, there are still six weeks or so that could result in hail storms, leading Canadian Crop Hail Association president Rick Omelchenko to speculate that final numbers could be higher.
With the Taber/Barnwell area being hit hard by hail last week, crop insurers have been busy with claims coming in from several different spots across the province. The local region, while the most recent, has not been the only hit area in the past few weeks either as several different places in the province have seen significant storms that have wiped out crops due to hail storms.
