A crop analyst says Saskatchewan farmers have made good seeding progress but are in need of moisture.
Bruce Burnett with G3 Canada says seeding is about 35 per-cent complete across the prairies but strong winds have dried out many fields.
He says some farmers may switch seeding plans from canola to wheat because of the dryness.
Burnett says a spring rain would improve soil moisture and help crops emerge from the soil.
He says seeding is a week to ten days ahead of normal.
