Saskatchewan seeding almost complete
By Top Crop Manager
June 8, 2015 - Seeding is nearing completion in Saskatchewan, with 97 per cent of the crop in the ground, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture's weekly Crop Report. Progress continues to be well ahead of the five-year (2010-2014) average of 73 per cent seeded for this time of year.
Crop conditions vary across the province but most crops are in fair to good condition. Concerns about crop germination and emergence continue in many areas that have not received much rainfall since April. Flea beetles and cutworms are causing damage in some canola crops across the province.
