Saskatchewan seeding pulls ahead of five-year average
By Top Crop Manager
June 19, 2014 - Despite another week of cool and rainy weather, 95 per cent of the crop is seeded in Saskatchewan, according to the province's weekly crop report. This puts producers ahead of the five-year (2009-2013) seeding average of 90 per cent for this time of year.
The southwestern, west-central and northwestern regions have nearly completed seeding. The northeastern region has 97 per cent seeded, the east-central region 93 per cent and the southeastern region 91 per cent. The majority of pulses, cereals and oilseeds are now in the ground with some greenfeed crops still requiring seeding in some areas.
