Saskatchewan farmers across much of southern Saskatchewan are looking to the sky for rain. Lots of rain.
Crops are beginning to show signs of heat stress.
The regional crop specialist in Weyburn, Sherri Roberts, says crops range from poor to good in her region.
She says some crops have been written off south of Weyburn because of a lack of moisture.
“We’ve got some areas that are really starting to look tough,” Roberts said. “And with these recent hot temperatures, there are some fields that sadly, I’m afraid, there could be some write-offs.”
Roberts says there is a wide range of crop conditions in the southeast because of sporadic rainfall.
She says a few fields of soybeans and durum south of Weyburn have already been written off because of heat stress.
