Farms wetter than usual around Battlefords
Weather is always a battle for farmers in Saskatchewan but it really depends on where you are and who you ask to determine the state of crops across the province this year.
Right now farmers around the Battlefords area are hoping for a bit more sunshine and a little less rain.
So far this summer, some farms have recieved around 10 or more inches of rain this year. Usually on average, they only get about six inches at this time of year.
The extra rain doesn't sit well with some farmers, such as Dale Thompson of Biggar. He is worried about crops getting drowned out.
Despite the concerns, others take it as a good sign. With the recent heat wave, some feel it all balances out in the end.
