Crop conditions improving


Crop conditions are improving in the south. In the latest crop report released by Alberta Agriculture, figures indicate that spotty showers, coupled with hot dry weather have helped the maturing process. The report does note that pasture conditions are now being reported as poor to fair in the majority of the area. Harvesting is underway for some crops like winter wheat and dry peas being about half done. Irrigated and dryland hay is being reported as 80 percent done for the first cutting with good to excellent ratings and the second cut haying operations being reported as underway
