More rain over most of the region this week has improved crop conditions and development. The majority of crops are in the good to fair rating. Most producers are happy to have the moisture, but fields in some areas have standing water from last week’s heavy downpour.

The Carnduff area received 48 mm of rain, the Stoughton area 25 mmm, the Tantallon area 60 mm, the Weyburn area 45 mm, the Odessa area 51 mm and the Ceylon area 36 mm. The Lampman area has received the most precipitation (308 mm) in both the region and the province since April 1. The Fillmore area has received the least amount of rain in the region (26 mm).

Topsoil moisture conditions have improved tremendously with the recent rain. Much of the moisture has moved into the soil, but many areas remain too wet for weed-control operations. Cropland topsoil moisture is rated as 19 per cent surplus, 74 per cent adequate and seven per cent short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 17 per cent surplus, 70 per cent adequate and 13 per cent short. Crop District 1A is reporting that 41 per cent of cropland, hay land and pasture have surplus topsoil moisture at this time.

Seeding operations have essentially wrapped up, although some greenfeed may be seeded once fields dry up.

Crop emergence remains patchy but the recent moisture will help crops establish. Pastures and hay land have benefitted greatly from the rainfall. Thirty-two per cent of the spring cereals, 35 per cent of the oilseeds and 28 per cent of the pulse crops are behind their normal stage of development for this time of year. The majority of crop damage this past week was due to localized flooding, hail, strong winds and lack of moisture. Insects such as flea beetles continue to cause damage in canola fields.

In-crop weed control applications are proving difficult due to strong winds and variable crop staging within the fields.
