Thura. to Closed Crops fair to poor as harvest begins By RIC SWIHABT Herald Staff Writer Initial harvest work in Southern Alberta has started in isolated regions with all farmers facing the prospect of combining below aver- age crops for all varieties of grains. District agriculturists through Southern Alberta re- ported Tuesday that dryland crops ranged from good to poor with the majority in only fair to poor condition. Irrigated crops are show- ing the benefits of adequate water supplies with good to excellent results reported to date. The majority of the agrieul- ists expressed surprise at the relatively good condition of the crops considering the ex- treme lack of moisture in most areas. This has combin- ed with hot and windy peri- ods to deteriorate all types'of crops. MONTANA HARD HIT Montana farmers south of C'outts have faced even dry- er and hotter conditions with the result that farmers expect to harvest only about one half the total of wheat and barley cut in 1972. Jake Egeler, Pondera Coun- ty executive director for the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service in Con- rad, Mont., reported less than two inches of precipitation has been received in 1973. Mr. Egeler said the improv- ed price picture for most crops will help fanners who otherwise would be facing a critical situation. Livestock operators in his area are the hardest hit as the drought conditions have left very little hay in tb? re- gion. OK livestock, a ranching and alfalfa pelleting' firm one mile west of Con- rad, is reported to be seek- ing tons of hay. It was indicated at a spe- cial meeting in Cardston late last week that the ranch is actively- seeking the supply from Canada, preferably from the Peace River dis- trict. LOW SOIL MOISTURE In the Vulcan district, poor soil moisture conditions are persisting. Wheat, barley, rye and flax crops are reported in good E. S. P. FOX Certified Dental Mechanic FOX (Uth.) DENTAL LAB LTD. 204 Medical Dental Slag.' Mane 327-6565 condition with oats fair and pasture land fair to poor. Late seeded crops are suf- fering badly while crops seed- ed in stubble land are .show- ing signs of distress. In the Cardston area, the soil moisture was improved following the weekend rains but is still rated poor. Hay production, has been reduced to oiw quarter to one third of the total in 1972 and farmers are facing depleted pasture situation. All crops are reported to be in poor condition. Taber reports all crops in good condition, pasture fair and soil moisture to poor. Foremost reports crops fair to poor with irrigated crops excellent. Forage supplies and crops are generally good to poor. In the Claresholm district, crops are generally good to fair. Hay crops are light in some areas but the bay is being stacked in good condi- tion. Wheat, rapeseed and flax crops are good to fair in the Pincher Creek region while oats, barley and pasture are fair to poor. Some good crops are report- ed along side poor crops, sug- gesting a management1 prob- lem. The good in- dicating good farm manag- ers, fanners able to take ad- vantage of shortages of mois- ture by cultural practices. LETHBRIDGE DISTRICT The Lethbridge district re- ports a similar situation with the Warner and Milk River farmers suffering from dryer field conditions. In the Medicine Hat region, farmers are further advanced in their harvest operations. Without tain before the har- vest _ is completed, yields could drop to 10 to 15 bushels per acre. Following the dry spring and summer, combined with high temperatures and strong winds, farmers on Southern AHjerta's irrigated sugar beet land are facing light stands. Arledge Hifl, assistant agri- cultural superintendent for Canadian Sugar Factories Ltd., said farmers bad diffi- culty getting good germina- tion in tiie spring. He looks for an average or below average crop this year, depending on the weath- er conditions through tbe summer and fall. SUGAR CONTENT He said if farmers get good, sunny warm conditions this summer and escape an early frost this fall, they could have a good harvest.

Labor supplies for 1973 were adequate, leaving the majority of the fields in good shape for the harvest season. No date has been set for the -start of harvest and ac- cording to Mr. Hill, farmers should give proper irrigation of the crop top priority for the rest of the growing sea- son. POTATO CROPS Jack Klassen of Taber, fieldmah for the Alberta Po- tato Commission, says the potato crop "looks good" although the cool con- ditions in the spring have caused the crop to be less mature than normal at this date. The potatoes are starting to size up in the ground and with two weeks of warm weather, they will be at a normal stage of development. Mr. Klassen reports less disease problem with tbe po- tato crop this year. With potatoes in short sup- ply now and price holding at a good level, producers should have a good market- ing year, he said. He expects a general har- vest to begin about Sept. 15. Pests, particularly the grasshopper and Alfalfa loop- er caterpillar, have been causing some concern. Extensive spraying has been done for both pests. Jim Archibald, pest con- trol officer for the Alberta Department of Agriculture in Lethbridge, said supplies of spray for grasshoppers have been shipped to rural areas. Farmers now have had enough chemical to spray 000 acres although much of the chemical is still unused. The Foremost area has been 'most severely affected by grasshoppers with about acres sprayed to date. Bottoms up Lethbridge dnvem continue to keep .city police fiies free of traffic fatality Police search for girl missing from campground A 17-year-old Wilmington, Delaware, girl, missing from her grandfather's trailer at the Henderson Lake camp- ground since Monday night has still not been located by city police. Sandra Greer left the campground about 10 p.m. on her way to a restaurant on Mayor Magrath Drive and has net been seen since. She is described as having long, brown hair, brown eyes, and a slender build. She was last seen wearing blue jsans with a heavy lea- ther belt and a short sleeved, bare-midriff sweater. She has a strong American accent. Anyone knowing the where- Corner of 12th St. B N. and 6th Ave. was blocked Tuesday until fire crews deaned-up gasoline which had spilled from the tank of a camper-truck tipped over in a traffic collision. The accident occurred when the west- bound truck, driven by Stanley J. Hehr, 33, Crossfield, collided in the intersection with a southbound car driven by Jennifer Cusack, 21, of 1249 10th Ave. N. No serious injuries were reported. Traffic death toll at 25 in district since Jan. 1 reports, roads in rural South- em Alberta are taking a heavy toll of drivers and their passengers. Since Jan. 1, 25 people have died in traffic accidents in the area policed by the Leth- bridge subdivision of the RCMP. To the end of July last year, 18 persons had died in motor vehicle accidents. Lethbridge has not recorded a traffic fatality since July while in the same per- iod, motor vehicle accidents in the surrounding area, in- cluding the Medicine Hat dis- trict, have claimed the lives of 43 persons. The discrepancy, accord- ing to city police officials, can be directly attributed to the higher speeds of highway driving. Most teaching jobs taken abouts of Miss Greer is re- quested to contact city po- lice.
