Seeding and harvesting the 2016 crop is wrapping up in many parts of the Saskatchewan grainbelt and most newly-emerged crops are in good shape.
Regional crop specialists say seeding is over 80-percent complete and will wrap up in a week or less in many parts of the grainbelt.
Yorkton regional crop specialist Lyndon Hicks says some fields would welcome a light rain.
“We haven’t really got a whole lot of moisture in this region since the spring,” said Hicks. “It’s getting to the point where we could maybe use a shower. But things are looking fairly encouraging in most parts.”
Harvest of the 2016 crop is also mostly complete with some fields combined while others were plowed under or put to the torch.
