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 May 7 to May 13, 2019

The region has made good seeding progress with 22 per cent of the crop now seeded. This is well ahead the five-year (2014-2018) average of 15 per cent for this time of year and up from three per cent last week.

Rainfall this past week ranged from trace amounts to 21 mm in the Nipawin area. The Bruno and Vonda areas reported 7 mm, the Garrick and Spruce Home areas 5 mm and the Lake Lenore area 2 mm. The Hudson Bay area has received the most precipitation since April 1 (52 mm).

Cropland topsoil moisture is rated as two per cent surplus, 82 per cent adequate, 14 per cent short and two per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as one per cent surplus, 82 per cent adequate, 12 per cent short and five per cent very short. Crop District 8A is reporting that five per cent of the cropland and one per cent of the hay land and pasture have surplus moisture at this time.

Pastures and hay land remain slow to green up due to the cool weather. Producers have indicated that cold temperatures are making pre-seeding weed control difficult as there is little weed growth.

Farmers are busy seeding, working fields, applying fertilizer and calving.
