Heavy rains in the month June took their toll on crops in the Rural Municipality of Rhineland. Reeve John Falk says the last couple of days of warm, dry weather has helped crops to recover, but there are some problem spots in the municipality.

Falk estimates close to 5% of cropland in the municipality was not seeded because of the wet conditions this spring. Meanwhile, the overabundant rains have created some challenges along the Aux Marais drain in the southeast portion of the municipality.
