Earth News: Canada
March 06, 2007
Farmers in southwest Saskatchewan are concerned about the lack of snow cover on their fields and are raising the alarm about drought. We've had these two extremely dry years and the extreme heat, with the drought, especially last year, devastated the crop production." Cattle farmers are also preparing for the worst.
