UTHBRIDGE FREDDIE'S FAINTS (Wntern) LIMITED 3rd Ave. i. Seeding Half Done OTTAWA (CP) Wet weather has delayed planting ill Manitoba and Saskatchewan, but Alberta farmers have about half of then- 1970 wheat in, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported Wednesday. Moisture supplies are good in central Alberta but land is dry in the south and in the Peace River area, the bureau said in the second of its 1970 series of telegraphic reports of Prairie crop conditions. The report is based on infor- mation gathered by selected crop correspondents, including federal and provincial agricul- ture department officers, grain industry men and independent observers, and wired to Ottawa Tuesday night. j Only about five per cent of the seeding has been done inj Manitoba and eight per cent in j Saskatchewan where some areas reported flooding. A survey of grasshopper eggs by the federal agriculture de- partment showed the hatch was delayed and outbreaks of grass- hsppers are expected to be light to moderate in most areas. The pests may be severe in the Wyngard-Garthiand area of Sas- katchewan and an area of Al- berta from Fort MacLeod and Lethbridge north to Claresholm and Enchant.
