Dry to drought conditions in southern Alberta; average crops in other regions.
Alberta crop condition ratings declined a further four points this week to 60 percent good-excellent, compared to the five-year average of 74 percent, the Alberta Agriculture crop report said July 28.
Hot, dry weather continues to cover the south region and is now affecting significant portions of the east half of the central region and parts of the northeast region.
Heavy rain across northern portions of the northeast and northwest regions have again placed crops under stress due to excessive moisture.
