Rain across Saskatchewan this past week has generally been welcomed by farmers.
Saskatchewan Agriculture crops specialist Daphne Cruise says the rain has helped to replenish topsoil moisture reserves.
Cruise says some areas though have received more rain than they probably would have preferred.
“There are some areas of course that are a little wet especially around Esterhazy and Langenburg with some flooding fields with the rain they got but for the most part, things look good for the east central region.” said Cruise.
Provincially, topsoil moisture conditions on cropland are rated as nine per cent surplus, 73 per cent adequate, 16 per cent short and two per cent very short.
Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as six per cent surplus, 68 per cent adequate, 15 per cent short and 11 per cent very short.
