Saskatchewan Weekly Crop Report

Majority of crops are in good to excellent condition according to the Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report.
In southern parts of the province there were reports of some frost and producers are still assessing the damage.
Precipitation across the province varied over the past week. Many areas, especially in the south, are in need of rain to help crops, hay and pasture grow.
Haying has also began and four per cent of the hay crop is cut and two per cent is baled.
According to the report, crop damage this week was due mostly to flooding, frost, wind, insects and gophers. Herbicide application is almost complete but has been slowed due to wind. Producers are also working on scouting for disease, applying fungicides and cutting hay.
For the month of June, SaskPower has received 29 reports of farm equipment contacting power lines so far. This brings the total up to 168 incidents this year.
