The objective of the crop report is to capture timely information relating to crop production in Alberta during the current crop season. This is achieved through the use of surveys which collect data on moisture and crop conditions, progress of seeding and harvesting, insect and disease situation, yield potential and crop quality, etc. Data collected through the surveys, along with information from other sources will be used to compile the bi weekly (year) crop report, which presents provincial and regional summaries. The crop report is used by industry and other stakeholders for various purposes, including drought monitoring and forecasting of production insurance payments. It is also used to validate some of the Alberta crop estimates generated by Statistics Canada.
