No Suprises Expected for Local Farmers with Average Soil Moisture Levels Heading into Spring

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: As we head into the season where our region sees the most precipitation, Soil Moisture Technician Joe Michielson noted that things are looking pretty good.

 

He explained that there's already one to three inches of water in the soil, which is on par with an average year. He added that as long as we get an average amount of rain this spring, it should be another solid year for local producers.

 

Michielson did acknowledge one thing though that farmers still have to wait for, "We've had some sprinklings of precipitation, mostly in the form of snow so far, which has led to colder than normal March and so far into April. So I guess the first things the farmers are going to require is some warm temperatures so they can get into the fields."
