The 2004 crop season in Alberta began under cool, dry conditions.
Alberta Gov.
The 2004 crop season in Alberta began under cool, dry conditions. Lack of soil moisture reserves, particularly at the sub-surface level, is reported in many areas. Provincially, surface moisture is rated as 17% poor, 46% fair, 32% good, and 5% excellent, while rating of sub-surface moisture is 39% poor, 35% fair, 24% good, and 2% excellent. Rain showers and warm temperatures are needed, although surface moisture level is adequate for seed germination in most areas.

Seeding progress in Alberta is estimated as 75% complete, slightly ahead normal. Seeding progress by crop is as follows: spring wheat 85%, durum wheat 90%, oats 45%, barley 65%, canola 80%, and dry peas 95%. Some fields were reseeded due to frost damage and winter kill in fall-seeded crops. Cool temperatures and frosts delayed seeding and emergence. Early seeded crops have emerged or are emerging. Spraying for weed control has just begun.

Pasture and tame hay growth is slow, due to low temperatures and lack of moisture. Provincially, pasture is rated as 47% poor, 35% fair, 17% good, and 1% excellent, while rating of tame hay is 41% poor, 39% fair, 17% good, and 3% excellent.

In terms of feed grain and forage supplies, some producers indicated deficits and possible shortfalls. Soil erosion, caused mainly by strong winds, occurred in some areas. Concerns on potential insect infestations, particularly grasshoppers, are also reported.
