July 31, 2014 - Much of Saskatchewan received rainfall last week ranging from small amounts to several inches. According to the latest Saskatchewan Agriculture crop report, storms brought heavy rain, strong winds and damaging hail to some areas of the province.
While the rain helped alleviate dry conditions in some southern areas, additional moisture is needed soon to help crops mature and fill.
Wheat midge and grasshoppers are causing some crop damage, as are diseases such as root rot, sclerotinia and leaf spots.
