There is a good chance it will snow today which is going to help the moisture levels in the ground for farmers after an unseasonably dry winter.
As we move closer to Spring, Farmers are already planning which crops they should plant. The weather has a large part to play after a dry summer has been followed by a mostly dry winter.
Farmers are concerned about precipitation levels.
"The trend has been probably our last significant moisture event was last June 14th when we had two and a half inches of rain in this area which is a great number and a saviour for last years results, explained Marcel van Staveren, Weyburn and Area Farmer.
"Since then we have had very little to almost no precipitation and the snowfall has kind of come and gone. That would have added up to a slight amount of moisture but nothing near what we need in the top meter. What we all depend on is the top three to four feet of soil."
Some crops do well in dryer temperatures but those crops may not do as well on the markets.
"Our annual average precipitation for this region, typically I think they call it 12-13 inches per year including snowmelt and rainfall. Certainly at this point so far it doesn't want to happen," said van Staveren who thinks we can hopefully count on 8-10 inches of rainfall spread out through the growing season."
Van Staveren said a few farmers are doing small irrigation projects but this is not neccesarily practical for this region on a large scale.
