Farm supply sales are expected to get a boost after Friday’s widespread rain across southern Saskatchewan.
Valley Side Sales owner and manager Bryce Reynoldson says the rain provides more certainty and confidence for farmers looking to see their crop get started.
Reynoldson says farmers faced a dry year last year and the rain improves the attitude of many people.
He says the rain is critical for the province because of the impact of farming on the economy.
The moisture ranged from 20 to 50 millimeters or more across a wide portion of the grainbelt.
