According to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s Weekly Crop Report, crops are developing quickly but normally in most of the province.
Majority of fall cereals, spring cereals, oilseeds and pulse crops are at normal stages of development for this time of year.
Livestock producers have 20% of hay crop cut, and 59% baled or put into silage. Most hay is rated at a good quality. Hay is projected to be in short supply this year in some areas.
Crop and pasture conditions continue to decline due to lack of rainfall. Topsoil moisture is quickly getting worse and rain is needed for crops to fill and for topsoil to be replenished.
The high temperatures have caused heat blasting damage in many flowering canola crops.
Producers are now busy haying, scouting for pests and getting ready for harvest.
