This issue’s map shows the per cent of average precipitation across the Prairies so far this growing season. It is an interesting pattern across the Prairies so far this growing season, with some very dry regions and some very wet areas. In Manitoba the Interlake region has been dry while the rest of the region has been either near average or a little below. www.agr.gc.ca/pfra/drought
