Keep Off the Crops!

Keep Off the Crops!

Due to excessive moisture conditions across the County nearly half of the crops have not yet been harvested. For this reason, producers are reminding recreational users and hunters to be aware that driving over unharvested crops will cause negative impacts.

Reminder to Snowmobile & ATV Riders!

Keep off the Crops!

Stick to ditches, recreational trails, and road-right-of-ways! Nearly half of all crops haven’t been harvested and riding on them could ruin them.

Even if you don’t see crops in the fields, they’re still there and easily damaged!

For more information contact Yellowhead County Agricultural Services at 1-800-814-3935.

Agricultural Services is reminding recreational users to stick to the ditches, recreational trails, and road right-of-ways when riding in agricultural areas this winter and spring.

Nearly half of the crops were not harvested this year due to excessive moisture conditions across Yellowhead County. 

For this reason, producers are reminding recreational vehicle users and hunters to be aware that driving over unharvested crops will cause negative impacts. Driving over sensitive crops like canola will cause shelling losses and driving on cereals will make it difficult to pick up with a combine. 

Getting crops off fields and tested sooner than later may help reduce damage caused by both excess moisture and unintentional external impacts.

Driving over sensitive crops like canola will cause shelling losses and driving on cereals will make it difficult to pick up with a combine. This awareness still applies when the snow falls. Agricultural Services is reminding recreational users to stick to the ditches and recreational trails.
