Farmers in southern Saskatchewan are already getting antsy.
They would normally be seeding by now.
The late arrival of spring isn’t a big concern for growers in our east central region.
Saskatchewan Agriculture regional crop specialist Lyndon Hicks says we normally don’t get started seeding until May.
“It’s looks like the forecast is going to smarten up later this week and into next week, so the snow can disappear fast,” Hicks said.
In southern areas where seeding would normally be underway growers may look at planting other shorter season crops.
