Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, MAY 14, 1946 ACRES OF POTATOES ARE PLANTED IN RAYMOND DISTRICT RATMOXD (HNS) Approxi- mately 95 per cent of the wheat crop has now been seeded in the Ravmond district. There has been aa" acreage increase over last year of about 5 per cent. Roughly 35.000 acres of wheat have been seeded. Yerv little precipitation has been received in this district in the past five weelss, and rain is badly -need- ed. Earlv grains still have enough moisture for gemination, and the condition of the sab-soil is fairly good. Too soil though is dry and in poor condition. Stubble crops, too, need rain. The intermittent high winds of the pass month have caused a 5 per ceai datnage to wheas and other grams. The oat and barley acreage this is approximately 5 per cent less" than last year. The recens frosty nights' experi- ence here have caused no damage to wheat, or other grain ii is re- ported. The 1946 spring has been the driest m 21 years. Potato Acreage According to reports from one potato grower who has planted 50 acres of spuds, about 6.000 acres of spuds have been planted. This represents the bulS of the tubers which will be planted this year in south Alberta. Due to controlled restrictions on the kind of seed which could be planted in the past few years, a better potato is being grown and a heavier tonnage re- ported. Verv few potatoes are above line ground as yet, consequently no damage from frost fras been sus- tained here.
