Nearly a third of the provincial crop is in the ground.
30 percent has been planted, which is just down from the five year average of 33 percent.
While seeding is most advanced in the southeast where producers have 60 percent in the ground, those in the northwest and northeast have seen less than 10 percent planted.
Provincial crops specialist Shannon Friesen says that is a little concerning, but it is only mid-May and a couple of weeks of sunny weather will help tremendously in those regions.
It’s hoped with good weather in the forecast for the May long weekend that farmers will be able to get a lot of work done over the next seven days.
