Never in the history of Western
Canada did the seed enter the ground
under more favorable conditions, lhe ,
weather during the month of April
was perfect fur seeding operations,
and from early morning until lute at
night the seeders were at work, and
every acre that could be profitably
sown was placed under requisition.
Farmers entered heart and s ml into
the campaign of greater production.
There was the time and the opportu-
nity for careful preparation, and as a
consequence with lavorable weather
from now on there will be a vastly In-
creased yield. They realized It was a
duty they owed to humanity to produce
nil that they could on the land, not
only this year but next as well. Tn
addition to the patriotic aspect, they
are aware that the more they produce
the greater will be their own return
!n dollars and cents.
In many districts wheat seeding was
completed by the 1st of May, after
.\inert- 1 NV'dch date oats and birlev on larger
acreages than usual were planted.
As has been said, favorable weather
conditions made possible excellent
seed-bed preparation, and the seed hns
gone into the ground in unusually good
shape. The available moisture in the
soil hns been added to by rains, which
have not been so heavy, however, as to
