Drought Conditions and AFSC Crop Insurance

The County of St. Paul sent the attached letter to Hon. Devin Dreeshen, Minster of Agriculture & Forestry about the effects of the the extended period of hot, dry weather is having on the crops in the province, particularly in northeast Alberta.

Further, the County is urging the AFSC to allow producers to salvage these crops now so that they can achieve some value from this year’s production and potentially assist with the problems for the livestock industry that is struggling to find enough feed.

The letter was sent to the Minister on July 16, 2021
