The latest Saskatchewan crop report says seeding advanced rapidly during the past week.
Provincial crops analyst Shannon Friesen says 60 percent of seeding is complete, up from 30 percent last week.
The five year seeding average for this time of year is 65 percent.
Saskatchewan farmers will need several more weeks of warm dry weather to wrap up seeding.
It is estimated five percent of acres will not be seeded due to excess moisture, mostly in the northern grainbelt.
Seeding ranges from 80 percent in the southeast to 25 percent in the northeast.
While fields are wet in the north some areas of the southern grainbelt need moisture.
Topsoil moisture is rated 11 percent surplus, 79 percent adequate, nine percent short and one percent very short.
Crops are generally in good condition although there was some damage during the past week from strong winds, localized flooding and lack of moisture.
Hard frost last week damaged some alfalfa, winter cereal and canola fields and some crops will be re-seeded in the coming weeks.
SaskPower says there were 67 power line contacts involving farm equipment during May and encourages farmers to use extreme caution around power lines.
