On the farm

There's been ample talk about how tough the past few years have been for agriculture in general - and not just for beef exporters. But, all jinxes aside, it looks like everything may be falling into place this year:
Despite the blustery weather of recent weeks, a bumper crop is shaping up, according to the latest crop report from the provincial agriculture department.

The weekly report says 90 per cent of fall and spring cereals are in good to excellent condition.

And 83 per cent of oilseed crops are estimated to be in good or excellent condition.

Naturally, the crops are never going to be perfect. But this sounds like a great start for this year. The centennial takes another turn for the better.
