The first crop report of the season says seeding has started across southern Saskatchewan.
Field conditions vary greatly across the province.
Southern regions are dry while northern and eastern areas have high field moisture.
Topsoil moisture is rated 6 percent surplus, 64 percent adequate, 20 percent short and 10 percent very short.
The soil is slow to warm up and there is still snow and ice in ditches in the north.
Due to an extended cold winter, some livestock producers are searching for alternative feed supplies while waiting for pastures to grow.
Spring runoff was below normal and some ranchers are worried about water supplies during the grazing season.
Rainfall this past week ranged from a trace to 24 millimeters at Big Beaver near the U.S. border.
SaskPower had four cases of farm equipment contacting electrical equipment during the past week.
The majority of farming related incidents occur during seeding and farmers are being reminded to check for overhead lines while working.
