Great strides were made this past week, as 81 per cent of the crop is now seeded, according to Saskatchewan Agriculture’s weekly Crop Report. Warm and dry weather has allowed producers to remain well ahead of the five-year (2011-2015) seeding average of 59 per cent. Many producers have completed seeding operations and are now starting in-crop herbicide applications.

Seeding is most advanced in the southwest, where producers have 90 per cent of the crop seeded. Eighty-seven per cent of the crop is seeded in the southeast; 84 per cent in the northwest; 83 per cent in the west-central region; 75 per cent in the northeast; and 68 per cent in the east-central region.
