Seeding progress across Saskatchewan is advancing rapidly due to recent warm, dry weather.
Seeding is 35 per-cent complete across Saskatchewan, compared to 15 per-cent last week.
Seeding is most advanced in the southwest at 58 per-cent, followed by the southeast at 51 per-cent.
Planting is 26 per-cent in in the west-central region, 23 per-cent in the northeast, 21 per-cent in the northwest and 17 per-cent in east-central Saskatchewan.
Topsoil moisture is rated two per-cent surplus, 74 per-cent adequate, 21 per-cent short and three per-cent very short.
Significant rain this week will help alleviate concerns in many areas about drop topsoil moisture.
Provincial crops analyst Shannon Friesen says the rainfall ranged from a few millimeters in the northwest to four inches or 100 millimeters north of Moose Jaw in the Tugaske-Eyebrow region.
Parts of the southern grainbelt received several inches of welcome moisture.
The temperature reached zero Thursday and the forecast calls for minus three on Friday.
Friesen says frost is a concern because some newly emerged crops, particularly canola, could be damaged.
