The latest crop report says a wide area of the Saskatchewan grainbelt needs rain.
Crop specialist Brent Flaten says rain is needed in a triangle area from Maple Creek to Saskatoon to Regina and Weyburn.
Flaten says there is excess moisture in the northeast and northwest portions of the Saskatchewan grainbelt.
Crops are at their normal stages of development but a lack of moisture is causing crop stress.
Crop damage this past week was due to dry conditions, wind, insects, localized flooding and hail.
Haying is underway, with 19 percent of the hay crop cut and 10 percent baled or put in silage.
Hay quality is rated eight percent excellent, 54 percent good, 29 percent fair and nine percent poor.
Hay yields are poor in the driest part of the grainbelt.
