Northeastern Saskatchewan

Crop District 8 – Hudson Bay, Tisdale, Melfort, Carrot River, Humboldt, Kinistino, Cudworth and Aberdeen areas;
Crop District 9AE – Prince Albert, Choiceland and Paddockwood areas

For the Period June 21 to 27, 2022

Growing conditions are looking good in the region despite many low laying areas holding water that has drowned out crops. Crops have adequate moisture and have received several sunny days but some crops are still behind in development due to late seeding and wet conditions.

Regionally, 60 per cent of the fall cereals, 55 per cent of the spring cereals, 39 per cent of the oilseed crops and 60 per cent of the pulse crops are at their normal stages of development for this time of year.

Crop conditions range from fair to good in the region, with 56 per cent of the spring wheat, 48 per of the canola and 68 per cent of the peas being in good condition at this time.

Rain in the region ranged from trace to 46 mm in the Zenon Park area. The Bruno and Nipawin areas received 26 mm, the Humboldt area 18 mm and the Tisdale area 14 mm. There were reports of minor flooding in low areas but crops on higher ground look very good.

Crop land topsoil moisture is rated as twelve per cent surplus and 88 per cent adequate. Hay and pasture land topsoil moisture is rated as nine per cent surplus and 91 per cent adequate.

Haying has not begun in the northeast region but is expected to begin in a week or so once conditions are favourable for cutting. Hay quality is rated as 38 per cent excellent and 62 per cent good.

The majority of crop damage this week was from localized storms that resulted in flooding and hail, insect pests and wind. Producers are busy spraying for weeds, insects and disease. Livestock producers are prepping haying equipment and will be getting into their fields shortly.
