It's because of the cool wea- ther, agricultural experts in the various districts report. Moisture just isn't "being suck- ed out" of the crops and the farmlands as rapidly as it would under normal circum- stances. In many districls a good rain would still do the crops a world of the agricultur- al experts stale. "There are only spotly areas, mostly in the southeast, where a good rainfall would do the drought- hit crops litlle good." Throughout the south, how- ever, Ihe call is for a good, gen- eral rain to fill out the grain leads and improve pastures and rangelands. The latest h i g change on southern Alberta's farm front came Thursday night in the region south of Burdett and rassy Lake and east through to Cypress Ilills Provincial 'ark, Localized thundershowers dumped from half m inch to an inch of rain on the region during the evening. Part of Ihe rain swung north and hit Medi- cine Hat in two showers that olalled one inch of moisture. AREA OF EXTREMES The southeastern corner of he province is now one of ex- remes, wilh some spotty areas completely drought ridden; others will make a long lime average crop of 18 bushels per acre for spring wheat, with ome districts reporting some of the best crops they have seen n years 35 or more bushels 2r acre for spring wheat. Farmers and ranchers in the outheast report that like crops, lastures and rangelands are deteriorating, but so far have jeen holding up surprisingly well. Westerly towards the irriga- tion belt, crops are much the ame as they are in the soulh- ast hit by drought, but hold- ng up. Some farmers report hey are having the worst irought since the early 1960s. CATTLE WELL Range cattle are reported to )e doing exceptionally well. A good general rain is needed oon if the pastures are going o amount to anything during he latter part of summer. In the region west of Taber, crops keep improving and are ated as good to excellent near he foothills country. But, the tetter the crops, the later they are in maturity. Some crops are said to be three to four behind normal schedule and there could be problems E there is early frost. IOOD HAY CHOP Range and pasturelands In PARK'S-NEILSQN'S Dry Cleaners Ltd.

The first cutting of hay Is now complete, including the hay- lands on irrigated lands. It is generally described as a "good average crop."

CANNERY CROP The cannery crop season opened June 29, with the start of harvest on green peas. Plants have been able to oper- ate only four days however, since the start, the cool weather has slowed growth and maturity. There is some fear that Lf there is a sudden, abundance of sunshine, harvesters may not be able to keep up lo the rapidly maturing peas and there could be some "heat bunching." The 1372 green pea crop is seen as a "good fol- lowing the "boomer crop'' of 1971.

LIMA BEANS The cannery operations of MacDonalds Consolidated at Lelhbridge may be in (he third and final year of experiment- ing with an early maturing variety of lima bean. The com- pany has had considerable suc- cess in experimenting with five- acre plots during the past two years. This year the acreage was increased lo 15. The lima bean is normally a fall maturing vegetable. The new variety, developed at the Lclhbridgo Resaarch Station, is ready for harvest about Aug. 20. The canneries will continue operations on locally grown produce until "well into the fall." SUGAR BEETS Southern Alberta's sugar beet crop is on the late side. But, officials of Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd., stale that "strong August heat" could easily see the crop catch up and even surpass normal growth. "There's no real problem, and we're not The labor supply in the beet fields Ihis year has been on the short side for timeliness, but it ended up being adequate. Factory officials had consider- able praise for students "who really pitched in and helped." FEW NATIVES Indian labor from northern Alberta is now said to be "prac- tically nou existent." It was a type of work that a majority of the Indian people just didn't care for even though It meant good money. A few years ago the factory, the beet growers and Canada Manpower recruited and more Indians each spring for work in the beet fields. Spraying for weeds through- out the southland is now com- plete and there have been few prcblems with insect pests so far on grain crops. There has been some web- worm infestation In sugar beets, but "this has been nor- mal and less than normal in some cases." ANDREWS SOAKER HOSES 30 Foot Twin Blade Regular 4.95.
