He said the nitrogen ferti- used primarily in the anhydrous ammonia gas is made from natural gas. But even with nine mil- lion tons made annually in Western exports and other uses of the substance could put a heavy strain on the supply in Canada. A new ammonia plant being constructed in Medicine Hat but it won't be ready to process natural gas until said Mr.Goettel. With about two thirds of the Western Canada anhydr- ous about seven BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installations Ph. 320-0372 2716 12 Ave. S. million going to export a limited supply Is left in Canada. Mr. Goettel said the suppTy in Western Canada becomes an outgrowth of what is left of the export contracts and this leads to a problem of estimating closely the amount needed in Canada. The difficulty of the estima- tion is compounded because the crops in the U.S. require fertilizer first because the growing season in the U.S. is earlier than ours. hopeful the fertilizer manufacturers will make sure there is enough for our farm- said Mr. Goettel. The fertilizer manufactur- ers will be making surveys in October and Nov- ember to determine the Ca- nadian requirement for 1974. Farmers can assist the manufacturers by acknowl- edging their needs as soon as he said. The dealers and manufacturers know only approximately the amount that will be needed. If farmers are planning added fertilizer programs or if farmers start for the first without prior the manufactur- ers could be caught in a short supply situation. Mr. Goettel said it could be more important for ail farm- ers to announce their require- ments this fall because of an expected tight world supply in 1974. And because of the expect- ed tight supply Goettel anticipates some price increases for fertilizer. Any increases in prices will likely be he because the fertilizer com- panies realize that undue price hikes could mean gov- ernment intervention. Some harvesting completed Farmers seek minimum losses South crop yields lower than average By R1C SW1HART Herald Staff Writer Crop yields are reaching average levels where ade- quate precipitation fell but the majority of Southern Al- berta's farmers are feeling the pinch of the worst drought conditions since the 1930s. Swathing operations on spring seeded crops are gen- eral in all areas with some harvesting be ginning. The harvest of fall seeded crops as winter wheat and rye is furthest advanced and has been completed in some areas. Lethbridge district agricul- turist Murray McLelland re- ports the drought has caused extremely poor crop condi- tions throughout the County of Warner except for the area west of Milk River and Warner. Winter wheat and rye crops have averaged about 25 bush- els per acre in the Warner These crops were seeded last fall and benefited from early rains. Rapeseed yields in the dry area are averaging about four bushels per down from the normal 18 bushels. Barley crops are bringing 10 to 15 bushels per acre in- stead of the normal 40 bush- els while initial spring wheat harvests have resulted in five- bushel per acre down from the nor- mal 20 to 25 bushels. He says that while the gen- eral scene in Western Can- ada is because of the drought conditions in the for many farmers it is a question of minimizing losses rather than expecting profits. just too bad Southern Alberta's farmers were hit in a year of real good markets and high he says. Further complicating the problems for some farmers was a heavy rain and hail storm which hit a wide area near Wrentham. The which dumped nearly inches of rain in about two pounded swathes into the ground making it difficult to harvest. The downpour also created some soil erosion problems in many fields. Full cattle assis- tance for crops to be seeded up to the middle of Septem- ber and added soil moisture reserve for crops seeded next spring are the positive effects of the says Mr. Mc- Lelland. Del district agricul- turist for the Municipal Dis- trict of reports crop yields than anyone although hay crop was less than one quar- ter of the total in 1972. Fall wheats and barley crops are being harvested with yields in the 30 to 35 bushel per acre range. Vern agricultural fiddman for the County of Forty crops in the Foremost area range from nothing to good. Because of the isolated patches where rain fell dur- ing the growing crops in the County of Forty Mile range from 12 to 35 bushels per acre for spring winter wheat and rye. Barley crops are bringing 20 to 30 bushels per acre with some fields reaching 40 bush- els. Mr. Arnold says 40 to 50 per cent of the crops have been swathed and 15 to 20 per cent harvested. Any oat crops grown this year have been baled for livestock feed. Farmers are also cutting the edges of most fields to salvage added hay and forage materials. Blair district agricul- turist for the Vulcan says the north end of the county received more mois- ture than the south re- sulting in better crops. Rye yields have been in the high 30s and low 40s with some in the 60 bushel per acre range. Rapeseed jields have ranged from 25 bushels in the north to 10 in the south. Flaxseed crops are still standing and prospects of a good yield are he says. Some spring wheat especially those seeded on land which grew a crop last year aren't worth he says. In other areas of the the yield has reached 35 bushels per acre. Allan district agricul- turist for the Municipal Dis- trict of Willow reports that on the long-term aver- it has been about an av- erage year for his area. He says many farmers may feel it is a bad year since 1972 was a record year in all aspects. Fall rye and winter wheat crops are finished with about 40 per cent of the barley and five per cent of the spring wheat crops already swath- ed. About half of the rape- seed crop has been swathed also. Barely yields have reached 40 bushels per acre with win- ter wheat and rye crops bringing 25 to 30 bushels. In the face of hay short- ages and rising more farmers seeded crops on summerfallowed land about four weeks ago. These crops have benefitted from some precipitation and will provide good grazing for says Mr. Toly. Bob district agricul- turist in Pincher re- ports the majority of the ce- real crops in his area will be put up for livestock feed year. Tha winter wheat crops which have been harvested have yielded 10 to 35 bushels per acre with barley crops ranging from nothing to 35 bushels per acre. Any crops seeded on land for the second year in a row- are very poor. Mr. Lyons says cattle are being turned out on these fields now.
