The president of SARM says farmers faced a challenging year in 2019 and hopes for a better year in 2020. Ray Orb says a spring drought was followed by a wet summer and harvest, meaning farmers still have over 2 million acres to combine before spring seeding. He also says farmers faced trade difficulties in markets like China for canola. He adds rural municipalities need more government help to repair roads and bridges. He is looking for a better year in 2020 with an early spring to enable harvest to wrap up before seeding begins.
