Agroclimate National Risk Report – July 21 to August 5, 2020

This report provides timely information on the regional agroclimate conditions, risks, and impacts across Canada. Reports are produced on a bi-weekly basis.

National overview

The most significant climate-related risks to agriculture in Canada as of August 5 were excess moisture and flooding in the northwestern agricultural regions of Alberta and British Columbia, and dry and hot conditions in Quebec and the Maritimes.

Over the next two weeks, Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) forecasts cool conditions across British Columbia and western Alberta with periods of average to above average temperatures across the rest of the country that are favourable for crop development. Significant precipitation is also forecast for central and southern regions of Quebec, which could help alleviate drought conditions and improve crop development.
