Weather, Derailments Delay Prairie Grain to Market

Could mean a drop in prices

Train Tracks

The extreme cold on the prairies and the bizarre snowfall in Vancover over the past several weeks is putting stress on grain shipments heading to export, says an agriculture advocacy group, reports Global News.

Bill Campbell of Keystone Agricultural Producers said while grain movement has improved over last year thanks to the swift legislation of Bill C-49, things slowed down again around Christmas.

Several derailments across the prairies over the past month havenโ€™t helped matters, he added.

The result is the 2018 grain crop will head to the export markets slower than anticipated, said Cambell, and that means a drop in prices.
