A huge weather delay in the Saskatchewan harvest has prompted Farm Credit Canada to offer support to grain farmers.
FCC prairie Vice president Barry Watson says his lending agency is prepared to defer principal payments on some loans after combining was delayed by over a month.
He says rain and snow has reduced the quality of crops in certain areas and FCC is prepared to help those facing financial hardships.
Although FCC customer support is being offered in specific locations of the central and northern grainbelt, he says the agency offers flexibility to all customers in challenging business cycles and unpredictable circumstances on a case by case basis.
He encourages farmers in north and central Saskatchewan and Alberta to contact their FCC office to discuss options.
