Crop District 1 -Carnduff, Estevan, Redvers, Moosomin and Kipling areas;
Crop District 2 – Weyburn, Milestone, Moose Jaw, Regina and Qu'Appelle areas;
Crop District 3ASE – Radville, Minton and Lake Alma areas

For the Period May 14 to May 20, 2019

Very good seeding progress was made in the region as 71 per cent of the crop is now seeded, up from 53 per cent last week and well ahead of the five-year (2014-2018) average of 67 per cent for this time of year. Many producers have wrapped up seeding operations and more expect to finish up in the coming weeks. Eighty per cent of the spring wheat, 92 per cent of the durum, 70 per cent of the canola, 69 per cent of the soybeans and 91 per cent of the lentils and canary seed have been seeded to date.

Small amounts of rainfall were reported in the region this past week, with 8 mm in the Redvers area. The Lampman, Moosomin, Grenfell, Wilcox, Regina and Marquis areas received 4 mm and the Radville area 23 mm. The Radville area has received the most precipitation since April 1 (57 mm).

Cropland topsoil moisture is rated as 46 per cent adequate, 44 per cent short and 10 per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 27 per cent adequate, 50 per cent short and 23 per cent very short. Rainfall would be beneficial to pastures and hayland in the region, as growth has been limited.

Crop emergence has been slow with the cool and dry conditions. Frost occurred this past week in the region, but little damage is expected, as most crops have not yet emerged.

Farmers are busy seeding, rolling pulse crops and controlling weeds.
