Despite one of the driest growing seasons on record, crop prospects are relatively good in some parts of southeast Saskatchewan, but all depends on spotty rainfall during the growing season.
Weyburn regional crop specialist Sherri Roberts says there are poor prospects south of Weyburn and some fall planted crops did not get enough spring moisture.
But she says some other areas have great looking crops:
“Once again, it’s who got the rain got some good looking crops,” Roberts said. “Who didn’t, unfortunately, isn’t going to do so well.”
Roberts says some canola and wheat fields are in great shape but others are poor.
She points out some soybean fields around Fillmore and corn crops around Kipling look great.
