With a cold and wet end to October, farmers who didn't have their crops off the field were hoping November would bring some nicer weather.
"The main reason it was a struggle was first of all, we were late seeding because it was so wet," said Greg Porozni, with the Alberta Wheat Commission and farmer by Willingdon.
Thick and heavy snow flattened crops in the northwest region of Sturgeon County.
"As you go farther north there's as much as 10-15 per cent still left. It's very sporadic, it all depends on where and when that snow came in October."
There's some farmers north of Redwater who have upwards of 500 acres still out on the field.
Porozni estimates about only 1-2 per cent is still left out in the Fort Saskatchewan area.
With a late planting season due to spring harvesting being required for some, many will likely go through more delays in the spring.
