The chair of the Western Canadian Wheat Growers says weather was the number one issue facing Saskatchewan farmers in 2016.
Jim Wickett of Rosetown was in one of the worst hit areas for excess moisture.
He recently sold some low grade durum for one dollar 50 cents a bushel and over a third of his lentils were a write-off.
He says there were sloughs in areas where he had never seen water.
He never expected his area of western Saskatchewan to face the amount of moisture which fell this year.
He says its usually too dry in his part of the province.
Wickett says his farm had over 30 inches of rain this growing season.
He also sees the proposed federal carbon tax as a key farm issue in the upcoming year, saying it will cost 12 to 20 dollars an acre, reaching 50 to 60 thousand dollars for an average farm.
The Wheat Growers launched a petition this fall, and so far over three thousand people have signed the on-line protest.
