  • Description

    The High River area of Alberta, about thirty miles south of Calgary. It's in the southern half of agricultural Alberta, where severe soil-drifting is taking place. It was late in November that strong chinook winds started the erosion of the rich soil. Soil movement has been reported as far north as Red Deer, and in southwestern Saskatchewan. But the most severe damage is centered in an area around Fort McLeod and Lethbridge.

    Agricultural officials say part of the reason for the heavy soil-drifting lies with some farmers who have been neglecting proper soil management. The damage results from a loss of valuable top soil and the subsequent decrease in crop yields.
