That about sizes up the agri- ultural scene for 1972 as first arvest reports point to near ecord crops in southern Al- berta. A survey of district agricul- urists in the region indicated nat crops in the areas north and west of Lethbridge are con- iderably later maturing than irops south and east. Varying amounts of precipi- ation and lighter land in the eastern portion of the province account for the earlier crops.

WARNER Murray McLelland, DA for he Lethbridge and ounties, said harvest is in full swing in his territory. Spring vheat swathing is under way vith barley and rapeseed crops being threshed. "Scattered showers through- out the region are resulting in widely differing yields for all lie "Winter wheat yields have been reported from 23 bushels per acre to 45 bush- els."
