It was a welcome site to many Southeast Saskatchewan farmer's last week. Rain!!!

According to this past week's Sask ag and Food's crop report, over 35 millimetres of precipitation fell in the Southeast, the most in the province over the past 7 days.

the report also has showed signs of farmers beginning some haying operations, with around 1% being cut or baled, including some haying being done in Weyburn.

In terms of insect damage, there were reports of flea beetles, cut worms, wire worms and aphids.

According to Agrologist Terry Bedard with Sask Ag and Food, the Southeast has 81% of the Spring Cereals at or beyond the tillering stage which is the furthest along in the province as well the southeast is the furthest along in Flax.
