|FTLComm - Arborfield - September 19, 2000|
|Across the grain growing belt of Central Saskatchewan scenes like this one are common.
This year's crop of number one red spring wheat has had an average yield of well
above forty bushel to the acre and in most areas substantially above that. There
simply is no available storage for this kind of productivity either on farms or in
grain elevators and so field after field you will see mountains like these.
These grain mountains caught my eye because they are located on a prominent spot directly East of Arborfield and due South of Carrot River. These piles are truly huge and even more impressive is that there are so many in one spot.
