Seeding is 99 per cent complete in the region, this is just ahead of the five-year average (2016-2020) for this time of year of 98 per cent. Producers are continuing to seed green feed and are spraying for flea beetles with hopes to avoid reseeding of canola in the region.

Producers were happy to receive rainfall this week, but more is required throughout the region. Rainfall ranged from trace amounts to 12 mm in the Indian Head area. The Vibank area reported 10 mm of rainfall, the Odessa area eight mm, the Grenfell area six mm and the Carnduff and Glenavon areas four mm.

With the minimal rainfall in the region, as well as continued winds, moisture levels were slightly reduced compared to the previous week. Hay land and pastures will also need more moisture to be able to support livestock feeding in the summer. Cropland topsoil moisture is rated as 54 per cent adequate, 38 per cent short and eight per cent very short. Hay and pasture land topsoil moisture is rated as 31 per cent adequate, 46 per cent short and 23 per cent very short.

Most crops are looking good but growth is slow. In many parts of the region canola crops have reduced germination and emergence due to dry conditions; some reseeding is underway.

Thirty-three per cent of the fall cereal crops are in the shot blade stage and eight per cent are heading, while 48 per cent of the spring cereals are tillering. Thirty-one per cent of canola and mustard is emerging and 43 per cent is in the seedling stage and 31 per cent of the flax in the seedling stage. Forty-two per cent of the pulse crops are emerging and 48 per cent is in the vegetative stage.

The majority of crop damage this week was due to strong winds, dry soil conditions, flea beetles and cutworms.

Producers have been busy scouting fields, spraying for flea beetles and cutworms and controlling weeds.
