In Western Canada, the annual wheat harvest starts in late August or early September and farmers must balance readiness of the wheat versus the time before the first hard frost in the fall.
In the era before mechanization the difficulty of providing for the increased volume of labour needed for the harvest was an perennial concern. In many agricultural areas school holidays were set to allow the children to work on their parents' farms. In Canada, immigration was timed to have most new arrivals land in the fall. Most dramatic were the harvest excursions, which saw thousands of labourers voyage to Western Canada each year. The development of the combine harvester that could bring in many crops mechanically solved many of these problems. Even today, harvesting of some labour-intensive crops, like fruits, sees significant labour shortages. It is not uncommon for the farms of southern Ontario to import labour from Mexico and other parts of Latin America.

Can be reincorporated in an expanded version of this article. Tsavage 05:24, 24 August 2005 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The result of the proposal was no move. JPG-GR (talk) 17:20, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

HarvestHarvesting — Usually, articles are named using the gerund form of the verb (the "ing" form). For example, the skiing article is named skiing instead of "ski". See this page for the convention. While neither feels quite right to me for some reason, I think that "harvesting" is a little better than "harvest". Plus, it follows the naming conventions. —Kjkolb (talk) 09:57, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's naming conventions.
  • Oppose. Harvest here is a noun, not a verb, and the second sentence of the article already used it in this sense. I've fixed the first sentence to make it consistent. Andrewa (talk) 14:50, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose. As above, and the comparison to ski/skiing is flawed since the word ski is a piece of equipment and not a noun when it refers to an activity. Therefore the comparison to ski/skiing would only be relevant is harvest (noun) and harvester happened to be the same word, which they aren't. Tomas e (talk) 14:37, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Harvest is both a noun and a verb, and the reason stated does not constitute a compelling reason for the change. Wilhelm meis (talk) 23:09, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

I have a suggestion to make a section containing the importance of harvest in pre-industrialized societies. Think of the ritualistic human sacrifice most cultures had at some point and the fact that most people would work on the land during harvest —Preceding unsigned comment added by 145.94.55.29 (talk) 13:03, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
