Crop Burning Notice


Lac Ste. Anne County Agricultural Services AND Fire Services departments would like to remind producers who have experienced seasonal challenges in harvesting and removing crops from their fields of requirements should the choice be to burn crop remaining in field.


While it is not the recommendation of Lac Ste. Anne County, please be aware that we understand where a producer is unable to successfully harvest, crop burning may be viable option to undertake. Please be sure to contact your crop insurance provider prior to undertaking any crop destruction.

Any burning of crops will need to be done with significant pre-planning in place for each case. Perimeter cultivating must be done, and manageable areas must be determined first in order to prevent a possible running fire that will have the potential to quickly become a dangerous situation. Additionally, wind conditions, weather conditions and green-up will need to be considered prior to any burning being permitted for approval.
