Saskatchewan releases first crop report of 2014
By Top Crop Manager
May 9, 2014 - Despite a cool and wet start to spring, seeding has begun in some parts of Saskatchewan, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture's Weekly Crop Report.
The southwestern region is reporting that as at May 8, two per cent of the crop is now in the ground, while some producers in the southeastern and west-central regions are just beginning to seed.
Many areas of the province have received more than 100 mm of precipitation since April 1, which has delayed seeding. Provincially, cropland topsoil moisture is rated as 30 per cent surplus, 67 per cent adequate and three per cent short.
