Some frost damage reported in Saskatchewan
May 15, 2015 - Significant seeding progress was made this past week in Saskatchewan, according to the province's crop report. Thirty-four per cent of the 2015 crop is now seeded. The five-year (2010-2014) average for this time of year is nine per cent seeded.
In parts of the southwestern and west-central regions, some moisture would be beneficial to get crops off to a good start. Some areas in the southeast and in the east-central region, however, still have surplus moisture.
Cool weather has resulted in slow emergence of crops. Some farmers have reported frost damage to emerged crops and alfalfa.
