For the Period May 7 to May 13, 2019

Fifty-two per cent of the crop is now seeded, up significantly from 14 per cent last week and ahead of the five-year (2014-2018) average of 48 per cent for this time of year.

Parts of the region reported receiving precipitation ranging from small amounts to 18 mm (Rockglen area). The Mossbank area reported 13 mm, while the Webb and Shaunavon areas reported 7 mm. The Shaunavon area has received the most precipitation since April 1 (90 mm).

Cropland topsoil moisture is rated as one per cent surplus, 54 per cent adequate, 41 per cent short and four per cent very short. Hay land and pasture topsoil moisture is rated as 56 per cent adequate, 33 per cent short and 11 per cent very short. While producers have indicated that moisture is adequate for seeding, rain will be needed in the coming weeks to help with crop establishment.

Cool weather has slowed pasture growth and crop emergence in many areas.

There are concerns about poor-quality water for livestock. Farmers are busy seeding, working fields, branding and moving cattle.
