Hursh: Sask. Crop Insurance will be swamped with claims due to drought conditions

Many fields won’t see a combine and crop insurance claims are going to soar.

That rather dire prediction today from agricultural commentator Kevin Hursh.

Hursh says drought conditions have made headlines in Alberta, but he says the extent of the problem isn’t yet fully appreciated in Saskatchewan.

Hursh says the dryness has been expanding with markets and governments slow to realize what’s happening.

With high temperatures and relatively little rain in the forecast, Hursh says he expects Saskatchewan’s topsoil moisture rating to continue dropping and with that, more news of crop and hay devastation.
