Crops in southeast Saskatchewan are coming along fairly well, especially fall cereals. There are some concerns about oilseeds, as around 20% of the crop is lagging behind normal development.
The warm temperatures as of late haven't been helping moisture levels. Just 53% of cropland has adequate or surplus moisture, while 60% of hay land is adequate.
Haying operations are continuing in southeast Saskatchewan. The latest numbers from the provincial crop report show just over 20% of the hay crop has been cut. The quality varies, but is predominantly good.
While the crop has improved with recent rains, yields are still expected to be below average.
