Seeding in the Weyburn area of southeast Saskatchewan is nearing 75 percent complete.
Weyburn extension crop specialist Sherri Roberts says seeding has a wide range in the southeast, with some farmers already finished and others are just getting started.
She says areas near the U.S. border are least advanced because of a late spring.
She says some crops have already emerged and are two to three inches in height.
She says crops need moisture and so far there have been no major wildfires.
Roberts is hoping for rain this week to helps crops germinate and grow and reduce the threat of wildfires.
