Saskatchewan first crop report of 2016
By Top Crop Manager
Apr. 28, 2016 - Seeding has begun in Saskatchewan, although many producers are still working fields and controlling weeds, according to the first Saskatchewan crop report issued by Saskatchewan Agriculture.
To date (April 25), three per cent of the 2016 crop has been seeded, compared to the five-year (2011-2015) seeding average of less than one per cent.
Field conditions in the south have been generally favourable and many producers have been seeding for several weeks already. In the southwest, producers have eight per cent of the crop in the ground, while in the southeast, producers have four per cent seeded. There is little, if any, crop in the ground in the other parts of the province. Producers in those regions will begin seeding in the next couple of weeks, weather and field conditions permitting.READ MORE.
