This rain needs to stop and we need some sunshine so it can get the crops developed.”According to Kassian, he doesn’t recall a summer like this when Fort St. John saw this much steady rain for a period of time.If the rainy period does stop soon, Kassian expects that the pea harvest will begin in late August or early September.Advertisement While the cash crops are taking a bit of a beating during this time, Kassian says the hay producers are also struggling to get hay cut and off the field before it continues to mature and lose nutritional value as feed for the livestock.According to Environment Canada, for August and the remainder of the summer season, we can expect to see slightly cooler temperatures but with lower amounts of rain.last_img read more
