Mother Nature gives farmers no respite

Mother Nature gives farmers no respite

UPDATE DAY

After suffering repeated periods of drought, farmers in Bas-Saint-Laurent are now facing heavy rains.

Since the beginning of June , the Rimouski region absorbed between 125 and 150 mm of rain, while the average is usually 82 mm.

Agricultural producers will therefore have to resign themselves to buying grain to feed their livestock, but the Russian invasion of Ukraine has pushed up grain prices.

So producers will have to be patient as more rain is expected by the end of the week.
