Sask crops in poor to good condition
By Top Crop Manager
July 9, 2015 - Crop conditions vary throughout Saskatchewan with the majority of crops in poor to good condition. Grasshoppers and lack of moisture remain significant causes of reported crop damage.
Despite this, crops are developing well in most of the province, although many crops in drier areas are short, thin and heading out and/or flowering earlier than normal. According to the most recent Saskatchewan crop report, 67 per cent of the fall cereals and 39 per cent spring cereals are in the heading stage, with an additional 31 per cent of the fall cereals in the dough stage. Forty-five per cent of flax, 55 per cent of canola and mustard, and 82 per cent of pulse crops are in the flower to boll/pod stage.
