First Sask Crop Report for June
The first week of June has seen more rain across the province. A very welcome sight for some, too much at the wrong time for others!
While the rain has been welcome in most parts, the southeast, which had been drier recently, experienced flooding. Overall the moisture increase will be helpful.
Seeding is almost complete across the whole province, consequently the rain will also increase germination.
The crop report states, “Provincially, topsoil moisture conditions on cropland are rated as nine per cent surplus, 73 per cent adequate, 16 per cent short and two per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as six per cent surplus, 68 per cent adequate, 15 per cent short and 11 per cent very short.”
“The majority of crops are in good to fair condition. Provincially, 74 per cent of the spring cereals, 70 per cent of the oilseeds and 76 per cent of the pulse crops are at normal stages of development for this time of year.”
