Take a bumper harvest across Western Canada, add a grain transportation bottleneck, and you’ve got many farmers across the prairies left searching for crop storage solutions.

In January’s Western Producer, Errol Anderson a market analyst with ProMarket Consulting in Calgary, says the magnitude of this year’s crop will put a strain on rail car capacity and grain companies with commercial storage already tight–and likely to become tighter.
