ATVs Should Keep Off Fields Until Harvested
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.
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.
