The County of St. Paul experienced excessive moisture in the fall of 2016. The excessive amounts of precipitation resulted in 20 to 30% of annual cereal crops being left unharvested, as per Alberta Agriculture Crop Report Final Report of 2016. Producers reported poor yields and reduced quality of crops that were harvested.
